1950s Home, Grey Lynn

The owner of this 1950s home requested the kitchen be designed around a new counter that was sympathetic to the form and style of the worn out original. Using the botanical print of the drapery as a starting point a motif was created and printed into Formica. Close attention to the detail in the counter pattern and the restoration of as many of the original features as possible help to recapture the fifties.
