MELKBOSSTRAND | CAPE TOWN | 2018
If your style leans towards bohemian, or borders on eclectic, you may want to bring in unexpected elements into your kitchen design. An existing piece of furniture, or part thereof, can be incorporated into a new design with great effect, as long as you and the kitchen designer share the same vision.
This kitchen with it’s eclectic, “this-is-me”, bohemian style, showcases various aspects of homeowners’ personalities. Strong bold lines, and colours, stand in contrast to the soft lines and muted tones of the vintage elements that have been brought into the space. This kitchen is equally masculine and feminine, creating a space where anyone can feel at home. The robust concrete finish of the cabinet frames and countertops anchors the soft, airy, feminine elements of the space.
Ply wood cabinet fronts are an incredibly durable option when looking for a natural wood finish. Unlike solid wood, which is incredibly absorbent, ply wood has been engineered to withstand damp conditions, offer a low maintenance natural looking finish.
Concrete give an industrial edge to this space, but it can be tricky to install. Thankfully there are myriad concrete-look options on the market.
Distressed details soften the look of this otherwise hard-edged design. The home owner had existing white-washed doors that were incorporated into the design. This, paired with a crystal chandelier and rustic kitchen stools has brought a feminine touch to the space.
Bringing your personal style to your kitchen is a wonderful way to make your kitchen feel like it really is the heart of your home, so speak to your designer about it.
