Metallic finishes meet trendy tiles in this city kitchen. Tongue and groove cabinetry was given softtouch mechanisms to keep the look clean and uncluttered, while a green tiled splashback reflects the garden outside. A retro raw wood dining table and chairs pop against the graphic optical illusion floor tiles and provide a contrast to the metal-clad island. Adding an organic touch are plants and foliage, which also soften the hard edges.
To give the owners of this KZN house the farmhouse kitchen they dreamed of, interior designer Danela Conti of Resort Lifestyle devised a scheme that embodied an old-world aesthetic with all the mod cons of a contemporary kitchen. The two blue-painted units were custommade with soft touch drawers, but other vintage pieces like the 1930’s chairs came from antique dealers and were restored. Moroccan tiles from Moroccan Warehouse complement the cabinet colours and a salad bowl from Zimbabwe, varnished and plumbed in, was installed on a piece of marble on the table as a prep bowl. Copper pendants and wooden pot racks complete the look.
