Style, visual appeal and functionality were
the top three must-haves for the owners of
this Mosman Park home.
Designer Steve Johnson of Retreat
Design achieved all three in the modern
kitchen. He chose a tranquil neutral colour
palette, which many designers are now
leaning towards because it offers longevity
strong colours may date more quickly.
The timeless colours and materials
were also chosen to meld easily with the
rest of the home and create an easy flow
through to the living area, while warmth,
richness and texture were brought in
with touches of oak.
“We incorporated plenty of storage
space. Subtle lacquered cabinets and the
“Timeless colours and materials were chosen to

combination of stainless steel and stone
tops works well together and blends with
the rest of the home,” says Steve.
The island has a soft, classical feel,
with solid oak doors finished with inverted
panels from the Effeti Diamante range.
The breakfast bar, which complements the
stone benchtop, provides a luxurious focal
point and leg room to boot.
Of course, what’s a new kitchen without
stylish appliances? The kitchen is complete
with two Miele ovens, dishwashers and a
fully integrated fridge and freezer, along
with a Qasair canopy rangehood, a Blanco
flushline sink and Gessi kitchen mixer taps.
