The modern Kitchen space 


I have recently been looking at kitchen spaces and boy can I tell you figuring out what is essential is like walking through a mine field. Thankfully I’ve only been looking st “The modern kitchen” you know the one I’m talking about. The seamless fitted, recessed lit minimal, sexy numbers everyone wants but no one really has space for. 😏

I am pleased to announce that they are now focusing on more natural materials with accents that do complement the colour scheme. 

Are they locally sourced? Ah…. I’ll have to get back to you on that one. 

Norm Architects work the Industrial look

Danish practice Norm Architects used a palette of dark and warm materials combined with minimal tube lighting to create an “intimate and cosy atmosphere” at this wine bar and restaurant in Copenhagen.


You might see those concrete walls and think, “Nope. It’s a cold space and I don’t want to hear another word about it” 

But look at what the photographer did. He made it….intriguing, No? 

The loghtingingnforgives what the walls do not. And a busy cafe with music. Would you look at the walls ? Me thinks not. You’ll remember the chairs and those table settings though.

Luxurious interiors unknown artist001


I found these really cool pictures that got me thinking. Mostly about the phrase “Your home is your castle” or something to that effect. 

So how would we do that? Well we’d start by picking some quality products. Now do we showcase or do we incorporate them… that is the question. 

Barnby Lane Furniture store Melbourne

Okay I’ll admit I was drawn in by the interior pictures and the website is pretty cool. Not sure about some of the designs but it’s a bit different to Ikea or bed, bath and beyond. Right? 

Barnby Lane is worth a look for some armchair remodelling st least. So we can pretend to live in a quiet village somewhere in Iceland.
