ON A MIS SION

Katie Sargent Design, St Kilda West, Victoria; katiesarge­ntdesign.com. Fringed by ornamental grapevine and glowing with muted tones, this poolside outdoor kitchen is rustic yet refined. The structure was an existing feature of a Spanish Mission-style home in Melbourne and – like the rest of the house – it needed updating. “The owners and I pored over images of Spanish Mission-style houses to collate a sense of what we wanted to achieve here,” says interior designer Katie Sargent. She designed the new kitchen carcass and bench seat made from reclaimed bricks, painted white. The existing sandstone floor tiles were kept, the walls were repainted a custom Bauwerk colour and Moroccan zellige splashback tiles installed. “The tiles provide a textured wow factor,” says Katie. And the owners adore their mini hacienda. “It’s a Mediterran­ean retreat just steps from our back door.”
