It’s the tiny details that make this elegant kitchen by Decus Interiors work so well – details applied to ordinary items that every modern kitchen has.
To me the stand out detail is the Scullery, a ‘must have’ in most modern homes the scullery is a space that is typically shut away behind doors – strictly utilitarian, the simple addition of beautiful glazed doors, timber drawer fronts, full height tiling has been transformed utilitarian into spectacular.
Flagstone floor tiles, panelled cabinetry, industrial element of the Stainless Steel all elegantly cloaked in a soft neutral colour palette.

More often than not projects that catch my eye are Australian, our architectural style has a definite affinity with that of Australian homes, it makes sense our climates and lifestyles are alike, its easy to see to see the similarities – touches of timber, an emphasis on relaxed outdoor living. This gorgeous home by Richard Cole Architecture could sit very comfortably on this side of the ditch!
I love the choice of products in the Middle Harbour House kitchen, Black and White is an absolutely timeless combination.
Simple black cabinetry, note the black handles, white ‘marble’ bench tops, mirror splash back, great attention to detail see’s the chopping board and oil bottles integrated into the bench top…brillaint
The simple colour pallet of the kitchen extends into the living area seamlessly with the full height cabinetry creating a solid backdrop to the room. Again we see touches of timber, add natural fiber fabrics, full height drapes, subtle lighting and massive doors opening the entire width of the room. What more could you ask for?….nothing I think!
As we gallop towards the festive season time spent dreaming of the perfect kitchen seems to increase, all the little niggles that you’ve had over the year seem to amplify, the drawer runners are sticker, the cupboards don’t cope with the mountain of food you brought back from the supermarket and the rubbish seems to multiply as soon as you turn your back!
So while you dice, season and stir hold those thoughts and make a list of all the things that don’t function in your kitchen then make a wish list, start a scrap-book of styles you like, remember the new kitchen needs to sit well within the architecture of your home, when its finished it should look like it belongs.
How the kitchen looks is important but beyond that is how functions, it must be a practical space with careful planning storage can be optimised even within the smallest of spaces. The clever folk at Blum have a fantastic range of products that do just that, hardware that transforms the space under your sink
SPACE TOWER larder units, customised to any width and configuration make easy access pantry storage. ORGA-LINE cutlery and utensil divisions provide a place for everything. Soft-close BLUMOTION allows drawers and doors to close softly and effortlessly.
Blum have two inspiring showrooms, locations here, that are well worth a visit. It’s a opportunity for a try before you buy experience of their practical DYNAMIC SPACE systems. Believe me there is no going back once you have seen whats on offer.
