GO FOR GLAMOUR
Think ‘ luxe’ when designing a kitchen – the cabinetry should be as beautiful as the rest of the furniture in your home, especially in an open-plan space. In Hubert’s apartment, elegant touches elevate the simple kitchen design. ‘I carved a cubist pattern into the wood of the upper cabinets, which were then covered in gold leaf. The addition brings warmth into the space and references the tribal traditions of African adornment: from brass rings and armbands to the detailing on tribal masks,’ he says. A marble-topped table further enhances the opulent feel.
