I have a few kitchen projects on the go currently, working on multiple projects at once has its advantages – my eyes are wide open searching for contemporary, french country and classic inspirational images.
When I look collectively at what I’m attracted to there is a common theme ….. two toned block colour kitchens, is that a description?! What ever it’s called I like the balanced result, and its not just dark tops verses light cabinets, it’s more about colour designating the units use and balance ALWAYS balance

If you took the contrast colour out of all of these kitchens you would probably pass the by, but with a dash of colour they are something special! How good is the sunshine Yellow?… love it.
I like little things … finely crafted bowls of glass, wood or colourful china are impossible to pass by without touching, I also like little spaces I feel more comfortable in an intimate space than a large voluminous space.
Small things and spaces require much more thought and attention to detail to be successful I think that’s why they appeal to me.
Small thoughtful spaces require nifty cabinetry and I think this All-In-One-Bunk Bed by Studio Oink is amazing!! See how everything has multiple purposes, the black board is a door, raising the bed double storage space.
More importantly if your a kid it just plain cool
This Ensuite is part of an apartment renovation I have recently completed, the Design brief was to make a very small, internal, dated master bedroom ensuite into a sophisticated, light, spacious, functional space with storage.
This type of brief requires all the tricks to be pulled out of the bag! The main focus was to create an illusion of space , a wall hung vanity top clears the floor space, full width mirrors that have storage behind them visually doubles the wall space, contrasting black tiles on the end wall of the shower push the wall away elongating the room. Mood lighting along with task lighting adds depth. Job done!

“More storage” is often part of a clients design brief, here is a clever New Zealand made solution…Ecobox by Lundia.
Lunda is a N.Z based company that design, manufacture, supply customised timber storage solutions. Respect for the planet is central to Lundia’s philosophy they are fully certified by Environmental Choice NZ and further verified by EnvironSpec.
Ecobox is modular storage system available in 4 different sizes, boxes are made of sustainably harvested plantation grown 18mm pine. The concept is a result of recycling smaller waste pieces left over from larger shelving projects. Brilliant!! I really admire companies that strive to limit their environmental impact, Lundia is an excellent example of sustainable business.
Mix and match to suit your needs …. beautiful and functional.
