“WE HAD 35 OF OUR family FOR OUR FIRST CHRISTMAS HERE. PEOPLE WERE INSIDE AND OUT, BUT WE WERE ALL together. IT WAS WONDERFUL”
Form meets function in the spacious kitchen (top left), where a sea of crisp white – via 2-pac cabinetry in Dulux Natural White and Caesarstone benchtops in Frosty Carrina – is balanced by the warmth of timber. Beacon Lighting ‘Sunraysia’ pendants are in keeping with the contemporary vibe. “I love to cook,” says Deborah, who sources ingredients from the family’s vegie garden. “We grow everything from beetroot to broccoli and brussels sprouts.”
For casual meals, a custom-built table attached to the island (left) is ideal. “It’s such a social spot when we have friends over and it’s where we eat most of our meals as a family.” The ‘Crop’ bar stools by Relm are the perfect perches.
There’s no such thing as too much storage and this walk-in pantry (far left) helps keep everything in order. “My favourite item here is actually the little stool,” says Deborah. “It was Mitchell’s when he was a toddler and now I stand on it when I need something from the top shelf.”
