Subtle colour and pre­cise de­tail cre­ate a kitchen made for en­ter­tain­ing.

Country Style - - DECORATING -

When ac­claimed in­te­rior de­sign­ers Sarah-jane Pyke and Juli­ette Arent of Syd­ney firm Arent and Pyke pro­posed green-coloured cab­i­netry for the kitchen in this five-bed­room house in Syd­ney’s east, their clients had no he­si­ta­tion. “They loved the char­ac­ter and warmth it would bring,” says Sarah-jane. Keen en­ter­tain­ers, the cou­ple wanted to up­date the kitchen and bet­ter con­nect it to the din­ing space and back­yard, where a pizza oven is in reg­u­lar use. “They wanted some­thing that re­flected their char­ac­ter, which is tra­di­tional and English, but it’s a non-pe­riod house so we needed to cre­ate some­thing mod­ern but gra­cious.” The beauty is in the de­tail — hand­painted cab­i­netry in Du­lux ‘Moor­land’, cus­tom-made han­dles in Amer­i­can oak and veined Cala­catta mar­ble bench­tops with a rounded edge. “It’s unusual to see this level of de­tail in a kitchen that isn’t a French Provin­cial style, but we wanted ev­ery­thing to feel re­fined and con­sid­ered.”
