“The brief for the house in gen­eral re­quired the mar­ry­ing of two dif­fer­ing aes­thet­ics – one half of the client cou­ple’s English sen­si­bil­i­ties called for tra­di­tional de­tail­ing and colour pal­ette, while the other’s pref­er­ences were more con­tem­po­rary, al­most in­dus­trial. This kitchen is a com­pro­mise be­tween the two, pair­ing tra­di­tional de­tail­ing and pan­elling with clean lines and con­tem­po­rary light­ing. The dou­ble-height void next to the is­land and gen­er­ous space meant that only a light tting with vol­ume would suit the per­spec­tive. We se­lected the ‘Cloud’ pen­dant which has pres­ence but is also quite soft to bal­ance out the darker pal­ette and clean lines of the other se­lec­tions. We saw this beau­ti­ful over­sized tap­ware in Lon­don and im­me­di­ately knew it was right for the is­land bench as it re­quires this scale for bal­ance.” What lux­ury item did you choose for this space re­gard­less of bud­get? “Hands down it’s the Aga ‘60’ heat-stor­age cast-iron stove (not elec­tric) – an English farmhouse kitchen must!” de­cus.com.au
