KITCHEN

Your Home and Garden - - Your Shopping -

Brid­get loves to cook so the home’s kitchen de­sign was cru­cial. One of her big­gest bug­bears is an ex­posed range­hood, but hav­ing seen how the Kar­dashi­ans dealt with the is­sue, she was de­ter­mined to fol­low suit in her home.

“They had en­closed the range­hood with a fire­place sur­round, so we did the same,” she says.

Not only does this look work well with the 2.5-me­tre-high ceil­ing, it al­lows for the in­clu­sion of use­ful cup­boards on ei­ther side of the hob. Mar­ble bench­tops flank­ing the stove are also handy for mak­ing bread and pas­try, which Brid­get loves to do.

For­nasetti plates on the wall above the oven were found in a lo­cal shop and add an ex­tra hint of Ital­ian de­sign to the space, which has the warm, tra­di­tional feel of a Euro­pean kitchen.

An ad­ja­cent but­ler’s pantry echoes the sub­way-tile decor of the main kitchen and pro­vides am­ple stor­age for Brid­get’s bak­ing in­gre­di­ents.
