UR­BAN CHIC

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.

RUS­TIC BLISS

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.
