Interior Design Story
For this project the client had purchased a classic Mid-Century Modern family home and the focus for this Burwood residence kitchen and bathroom design was a large extension.
My scope for this project included spatial configuration, interior design and specifications. During the brief stage of this project, the interior design strategy focused on a classic Hamptons interior style. With a traditional colour palette, such as white, grey and navy.
Once the interior design strategy was confirmed, the next aspect of my scope was to reimagine the architect’s drawings.
The client wanted to ensure the best layout for the extension for optimal functionality. Based on understanding their unique functional needs, I found the opportunity to reorient the kitchen. To design the kitchen layout to suit the client’s requirements in terms of storage, style, cooking activities such as baking and must haves such as a bar and walk in pantry.
The interior design aimed to balance the couple’s interior style preferences in terms of colour such as a balance between the use of white and navy. As well as timber accents and the use of grey. Due to the client’s preference for no grout lines I specified an engineered stone countertop and splashback for the kitchen in a grey marble look. This worked well as a continuance to the grey walls and complemented the other finishes in the kitchen with a high quality outcome.
The home had a main bathroom, powder room, guest ensuite and master ensuite. In the main bathroom and master ensuite the feature was a herringbone tile feature wall. For the powder room and guest ensuite the design feature was bevelled subway tiles and a feature colour on the wall such as navy and grey.
While the focus was for the Burwood kitchen and bathroom design, my interior design strategy needed to be rustic and warm, as well as classically Hamptons with generous proportions, and a luxurious feel to accommodate a growing family and large family gatherings.
