Jenny Martin, principal of Jenny Martin Design, focused on clean lines for a seamless look in this coastal Victoria homeminimalist black pulls and smoked glass on the upper cabinets blend in with the stained white oak millwork, and the built-up concrete countertop and island give it a monolithic feel. But to keep the kitchen from looking boxy, she added lighting and decor that had a little more whimsy. We mixed different forms and shapes to soften an otherwise rectilinear effect, says the designer. Spherical pendant lights from Hinkley, curved brass backless barstools from Restoration Hardware and round pottery and ceramics give the space an artistic touch.
The upper cabinets in this clean-lined kitchen have a v-groove panelling that brings extra depth to the dark oak. The vertical texture added to the wood gives it a coastal feel, says Martin.
