This one-of-a-kind de­sign com­bines the con­cept and aes­thet­ics of a Ja­panese iza­kaya and ryokan, two big loves of the home­owner.

What work went into the kitchen?

We chose a lovely shade of grey which, due to the sun­light-ab­sorbent na­ture of spray-painted wood, changes through­out the day, giv­ing it dif­fer­ent “moods”.

Min­i­mal, yet clas­sic, trim­mings give the kitchen some depth, and were paired with the an­tique-look han­dles we hand-picked from Lavavella. And to con­tain cook­ing fumes, we in­stalled glass slid­ing doors that close off the wet and dry kitchens.

How else did you plan your in­te­ri­ors?

While the kitchen is a largely grey-hued space, we in­verted the colours for the bed­room; the wardrobes are white and walls are grey. Hamp­tons-style fea­tures, such as mod­ern barn doors and home­ware in nat­u­ral ma­te­ri­als were also used, like the bar stools from Crate & Bar­rel, wooden TV con­sole from Moun­tain Teak, and rat­tan laun­dry bas­kets from Bali. Lastly, we per­son­alised our space by dis­play­ing our rus­tic wed­ding decor in the kitchen.
