Cosy Home | Designing Your Dream Kitchenheart

A Guide by Deb Saunders

Embarking on the journey of creating your dream kitchen is an exciting and rewarding experience. Our brand ambassador, Deb Saunders, shares her insights on how to turn your kitchen into a sophisticated retreat with soft, earthy hues, brass tapware, and thoughtful design elements. Let's delve into the details of crafting a kitchen that not only functions seamlessly but also captivates with its aesthetic charm.

Choosing the Right Colour Palette

Deb suggests starting with a palette that exudes warmth and sophistication. Soft, earthy hues lay the foundation for a welcoming atmosphere. Imagine a kitchen adorned in shades that mimic nature's calming tones, creating a space where you feel instantly at ease. Deb's go-to colours include Calcutta Crema, a stunning Smartstone choice that sets the stage for a harmonious kitchen design.

Stone Benchtops and Shelving

Stone benchtops and shelving bring a sense of luxury to your dream kitchen. Deb emphasizes the importance of cohesion in design by matching the Smartstone Calcutta Crema shelves with the Calcutta Crema benchtop. This creates a seamless flow, visually expanding the space and providing a unified, polished look.

Warmth Through Flooring

Incorporating warmth into your kitchen design is essential for creating a welcoming atmosphere. Deb recommends oak floors in Arctic White to add a touch of coziness to the space. The graded tone-on-tone palette ensures a seamless transition between elements, making the kitchen feel cohesive and inviting.  

Incorporating Elegant Tapware

Brass tapware adds a touch of sophistication and timeless elegance to any kitchen. Deb recommends opting for brass fixtures that complement the chosen color palette. These taps not only serve a functional purpose but also act as statement pieces that elevate the overall design. Picture the glistening brass tapware against the backdrop of Calcutta Crema – a truly mesmerising combination.

Integrating Feature Lighting

To enhance the retreat-like vibe of your kitchen, feature lighting is key. Deb suggests strategically placing lights to highlight specific areas, creating a cozy ambiance. Imagine soft, warm lighting accentuating the beauty of the Calcutta Crema surfaces and reflecting off the brass tapware, adding a touch of glamour to the heart of your home.  

Styling with Artworks and Ceramics

To complete the look and feel of your dream kitchen, Deb suggests adding personal touches through styling items. Mini artworks and raw, earthy ceramics bring character and uniqueness to the space. These additions not only serve as visual delights but also infuse a sense of personality into your kitchen.

With Deb Saunders' expert guidance, building your dream kitchen becomes an enjoyable and fulfilling endeavor. Soft, earthy hues, sophisticated brass tapware, stone elements, and carefully selected styling items come together to create a kitchen that is not only functional but also a true reflection of your personal style and taste. Embrace the journey of transforming your kitchen into a captivating retreat, where every moment becomes a culinary delight in a space that feels uniquely yours.
