More than any other room in the house, this kitchen suc­ceeds in its at­ten­tion to de­tail. There is a mul­ti­tude of el­e­ments to con­sider – fin­ishes and sur­faces, the choice of ap­pli­ances and the colours are just a few, as are han­dles, taps, sinks, floor­ing… the list goes on!

To en­hance the tra­di­tional feel of the kitchen, Liesl chose gutsy light­ing and beau­ti­fully de­tailed and bur­nished cab­i­netry han­dles.

In the John­stone kitchen, sub­tle use of black com­ple­ments the white­washed oak cab­i­nets. Once the black oven had been cho­sen, shiny tex­tured tiles fol­lowed.
