Timber tones and marble patterns draw this large North Shore kitchen design together, creating the inviting and warm atmosphere the owners desired. The majority of the kitchen’s functional elements wrap around two walls to create a dedicated intimate nook.

The Iron Lace marble splashback anchors the space, its striking pattern drawing the eye down from the high ceiling. On the adjacent wall, a bank of stainless-steel ovens continues the visual line. The impressive island is an invitation into the space, offering multiple zones for food prep and socialising, and plenty of room for circulation. Its rich-toned timber top complements the warmth of the existing timber floor and acts as a nice counterpoint to the marble.

The pantry, while hidden from view, lifts the kitchen to another level. Every element is carefully selected to deliver much-needed storage and functionality, without compromising on design. The result is a striking marriage of traditional form and contemporary finishes that evokes a feeling of true intimacy.
