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.
