UR­BAN TRA­DI­TION Coun­try aes­thetic meets mod­ern func­tion i n a c l a s s i c Hamp­tons- s t y l e k i t c h e n . DE­SIGNER MA­RINA WONG “My favourite item in the kitchen is the Ilve ‘Nostal­gie’ cooker. It’s the per­fect blend be­tween coun­try aes­thetic and mod­ern func­tion. I wanted ap­pli­ances that would com­ple­ment the clas­sic style of the space and this oven works beau­ti­fully in a Hamp­tons-style kitchen. My other favourite item is the Per­rin & Rowe spray rinse.” What lux­ury item did you choose re­gard­less of bud­get? “The pot filler, which was about $1500. While I ad­mit that I got this purely for aes­thetic rea­sons I do use it from time to time, but not enough to jus­tify spend­ing that much money on it. It cre­ates a fo­cal point cen­tred along the splash­back and com­ple­ments the Hamp­tons style and adds a point of dif­fer­ence. The Per­rin & Rowe bench-mounted soap dis­penser was also a splurge. I didn’t want to clut­ter the bench with bot­tles of de­ter­gent and soap, and it flows seam­lessly with the tap­ware.”
