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.
