Funky and Fun Residence
The clients needed a new kitchen and wanted it to be a bit funky. Also the space needed to be modified so that it was more open plan and would enable their teenage daughters and friends to ‘hang out’ with their parents.
The first step was to use Resene Shiraz as the feature colour. It has a bright and intense undertone while still being sophisticated. It was used as a feature on one wall and then used as the colour for the back painted glass panels in the kitchen. The glass gives the colour a high gloss finish and is a great foil to the Resene Zylone Sheen finish of the wall.
The second step was to add pattern by using Lush Lotus pink floral laminate as a back panel for the breakfast bar and cube seats. The cube seats are not only comfy they are also are storage for emergency earthquake supplies! White chairs were chosen to highlight the Lotus pattern.
Step three was to introduce some neutrals to make the Resene Shiraz and Resene Lotus ‘pop’. The cabinetry was painted Resene Tea, benchtops were Quantum Quartz Coral Reef with brushed pewter Formica negative detail, stainless steel around the sink, and pewter toe kicks. Metallic Amtico vinyl flooring, elm timber on the island and a donkey brown carpet ground the space.
