Today we are so pleased to share with you one of the most beautiful Hamptons kitchens we’ve seen. It belongs to Louise, who built her brand new Hamptons inspired home in Melbourne that she has affectionately named “Our Hamptons Forever Home”
We asked Louise, what was the inspiration for her kitchen? “The kitchen design in this house was always a really important factor – it really is the hub of most homes so I wanted it to have that beautiful wow factor. Although I am usually such a timeless girl with colours etc I decided to make the island bench a dark colour – I just think it gives a wonderful contrast.” We do too, it really adds a punch to the room.
Some of the best features of this kitchen are the 10 foot ceilings, large cornices, concealed commercial style range hood, stunning marble splashback, soft close drawers and the contrasting island bench. There is also a massive four metre butlers pantry with a sink, coffee/tea area and a heap of storage – this is such a great feature as it means the mess stays in here and out of the kitchen!
Louise was kind enough to share some of her sources with us. The kitchen sink tap is from Reece, the Shaker style cabinet handles are from Mother of Pearl & Sons, The Bentwood timber bar stools are from Relax House, and the pendant lights are from Hamptons Style.
So now that Louise has created her dream kitchen, what does she think of it? “My kitchen is such a great space to work in and I find myself cooking meals and baking quite often as its a joy to be in. The area is a lovely light filled space with floor to ceiling windows to take in our beautiful view – most people that walk into this room the first thing they say is “wow” which is nice!”
Do you think it’s nice? We think it’s gorgeous. Louise’s kitchen has been nominated for Home Beautiful’s Room of the Year Reader’s Choice Awards. You can vote for it HERE, (the first room featured) but be quick because voting closes on Sunday 24th May, 2015 at midnight.
All photographs were taken by Louise who is one of Melbourne’s best newborn and baby photographers and runs Louise Treacy Photography. She also has a blog about building her house that you can read here.
