Dominion Road

NKBA kitchen distinction award winner, 2021.

Within our homes, many of us strive to perfect the art of balancing the old with the new. Bold and textural, this kitchen does this so effortlessly. With their lives spent collecting and curating vintage furniture, the homeowners wanted a space that was both contemporary yet harmonious with their sentimental treasures.

With a generous ceiling height, the eye is immediately drawn to the earthy tones and textures within the kitchen. The two geometric pendant lights make a dramatic statement in the open plan room. The brassy patina melamine batening on the range hood and around the island adds linear uniformity to the space. This is offset by the organic flowing veins in the natural granite bench top. Just like most vintage pieces, the river stone reveals its true beauty when witnessed up close. Its embedded red stones sparkle when met with natural light.

The tonal colour palette sits on top of a polished concrete floor, enhancing the overall sophistication of this kitchen. All the stainless steel appliances sit within carbon timberland finish cabinetry, making their presence unobtrusive to the flow of the space. The matte black handles are a discrete and minimal feature on the Blum soft-close drawers.

The powder-coated shelving and stone upstand situated above the cooktop displays the couple’s beloved trinkets. Not only an intriguing focal point when guests enter the kitchen, but also a cherished nod to the past for the homeowners.

The vintage and the new, elevating and embracing each other's presence in this striking setting.
