Northern NSW based interior designer, Judy Parkin of Interior Blank has been named as a finalist in the KBDI Awards for her work on Windsor House.
The brief for the project was to include a look of luxury. While being constrained to using the existing footprint of the kitchen.
“We needed to create a seamless flow between the living area and the kitchen”. Said Judy. “We wanted to create a feeling of space to make the kitchen look larger. My client also preferenced neutral colours, but not white.”
Fingerprint proof matte black finishes feature on the bulk of joinery. Helping to to create a beautiful contrast against the marble island. The main feature of the space. The kitchen features a fully functional butlers’ pantry, distinguished through the use of timber veneer.
Using the same veneer and marble as accented in the kitchen, your eye is then drawn to the luxurious fireplace. Also given the illusion of floating via the matte black joinery below.
“The fireplace in the living area was an eye-catching feature that created a focal point and the matching materials brought the two spaces together as one. The location enabled the owners to see the city views from the couch.”
“The end result was exactly what the clients were looking for. The layout was carefully thought out with its zones for cooking and food preparation, coffee zone and easy access to the fridge from the rest of the room.”
