DESIGNERS HEATH BALDWIN & HAYDEN BAGNALL
“The convergence of form and function is seamless in this practical, balanced family home that is simultaneously striking and unique. We endeavoured to create a space more like a piece of sculpture. With the use of designer and integrated Fisher & Paykel appliances we were able to disguise the general function and achieve a seamless aesthetic. We’re always challenged with our clients’ practical needs versus design aesthetic so in order to execute the black base cabinetry to perfection we selected the 900mm Fisher & Paykel oven. It was big enough for the family, while the brushed stainless steel and black glass made it work perfectly in the space. The Rich Brilliant Willing pendant over the island is also a favourite; from a distance it’s so simple but the closer you get the more you can appreciate its beauty. It also produces a subtle glow when on that creates lovely ambient lighting in the room.” What luxury item did you choose for this space regardless of budget? “The island fabrication out of marble – with rounded corners!”

DESIGNER CHELSEA HING “This kitchen was designed as the ultimate cook’s companion! Full to the brim with all the practical considerations for a keen cook, with storage for days and everything to hand, while creating personality and sophistication in the centre of the house where this family spends all their time together.” What is your favourite kitchen design element? “My favourite would be the island bench with the custom-designed book-edge detail on the stone and the barley twist leg. The client wanted a bespoke kitchen full of colour, pattern and whimsy. These details brought a strong personality to the space without overpowering it.” chelseahing.com.au
