From the leaves on the wet Ponsonby Rd pavement; a client’s kitchen with its mink brown tiled splash back; to the chevron floors at Artedomus, with that table!! The striking cushions from Elle Maison will liven up any room.
This was an enjoyable project to work on last year, particularly as the owners had some vision, and were not afraid of some colour…. the right colour of course. As it is a well known sweet company, I didn’t think the predictable sweet colours were right. The Charcoal joinery framed the Dulux colours of Cook Strait and Huka Falls with the doors in Dulux Torrent Bay, and Dulux Whangaroa keeping the vibe fresh and lively.
The new season’s tiles are looking great, particularly some of the splashback options. Here’s a taste from a couple of my favourite tile suppliers.

The Laminam splashback features in the kitchen of my clients new house. It is a full body porcelain tile only 3.5mm thick, with the advantages of being heat resistant, no grout line and stain resistant. The kitchen needed a strong statement, without it taking over. We were all very pleased with the result.
