“Our kitchen is the personality in our open-plan living space. The focal point of the open-plan 50sqm studio, it sits at one end to define the vibe of the space and set the tone for furniture and design. We’ve balanced the high-end (Smeg) with the lower end (IKEA) kitchen tops and brought in Oopenspace furniture in blonde woods, cement surfaces, washed timbers and upholstery. Freestanding furniture is another feature of the kitchen – appliances and furniture are the changeable personality pieces that reflect who you are and project the feel you want to create. These things change over time, so free-standing furniture future-proofs your personal aesthetic growth. Multi-function furniture is another must for smaller spaces: the shelving units can be moved about the space to change up the look; while a large dining table does double-duty as an island bench and can be moved into the living area for bigger dinner parties”
