Middle ParkModern Kitchen, Melbourne

Major renovation of an existing inner city house with beach views. Kitchen, bathrooms, laundry and study area. Colour scheme for the house was based on the Statuario marble benches and splashback in the kitchen - white, charcoal and silver. Multi level home with living room looking over the kitchen towards the city on one side and beach in the other direction. Beautifully book-matched stone benchtop in the kitchen with matching splashback behind a stainless steel bench.

    Hi Tommylay

    The cabinets are gloss white (2-pack paint) and the island bench is Statuario Marble with a 60mm square edge. The other (cooktop) bench is 20mm stainless steel and yes, the splashback behind it is the same Statuario marble. You can see the veins repeated down the waterfall ends of the island bench. The colour scheme for the whole house was based on the marble - white, grey and charcoal. The kitchen was built nearly 6 years ago - 2010 - but still looks modern.

    These lights come from 'Bonjour' in Middle Park. http://www.bonjour.com.au/ It was a few years ago so I hope Cecile still has them in stock.

8. Location: Melbourne, VictoriaWhy we love it: We can’t say it enough… the veins maketh the marble, especially so in this Statuario marble benchtop and splashback.

Not sure how to identify your Carrara from your Calacatta? Fear not, you are not the only one and the differences between the two can be so subtle that it is sometimes hard to know which one you’re dealing with.
