Habitat 25 - No flat whites


Homeowners Dave and Tracey may be more used to serving coffee at their successful cafe but when it came to choosing the colour scheme for their own kitchen, flat white wasn’t the answer.

It was Resene Tea all the way. The couple were keen to extend their existing neutral palette into the new kitchen. Toni Roberts of Kitchen Architecture agreed. She helped them create what they love to call “the easiest entertaining kitchen in the world”. The kitchen is positioned on the south side of the house so Toni chose Resene Half Fossil for cabinetry doors for its warm hue.

An island bench was designed as the main hub of activity. With an induction hob, a built-in (but removable) timber chopping board and scrap bin drawers below, this zone works perfectly. An L-shaped timber bar top provides plating-up space and a comfortable spot to chat to the cook.

Acting much like a scullery, a dedicated baking zone for the owner’s keen cake-decorator and pastry chef daughter is positioned on the rear wall. Complete with its own sink, oven, divided drawers and overhead cupboards it houses everything she needs.

With glamorous glass mosaic tiles featuring in the drinks area opposite the island, Toni complemented that with Resene Bedrock from the Resene Metallics and Special Effects range for the partitioning wall of the open scullery.

The owners needed to be confident in the wall surfaces being hygienic and easy to clean given the occasional café recipe trialled on family and friends – Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen Kitchen & Bathroom paint did the job.
