Photography: Karina Illovska
The kitchen is divided into different colours to reduce its bulk and a surprise pink study inside it has its own little window. The front rooms were renovated to their former glory with replica plaster reinstated. A tasmanian Oak floor with a beautiful matt water based finish was selected by jess and its light and airy. this unifies the old and new parts. Colour was used playfully. Jess came up with a diverse colour scheme that somehow works really well. The wallpaper in the hall is warm and luxurious.

7. Slice of sunshine. Sydney, NSWDesigner: Danny Broe Architect
28. Location: Sydney, NSWWhy we love it: While it’s by no means the smallest one in our collection, this kitchen designed by Danny Broe Architect in a renovated Victorian cottage captured our attention. We adore the way the architect has used four blocks of colour to to define the different zones within the kitchen, and how the large window fills the space with light.
2. Location: Sydney, NSW Why we love it: It may have been tempting to keep this kitchen all white, but the owner of this Victorian worker’s cottage headed in another direction entirely – using different colours to break up the bulky appearance of the space. We love the insertion of sunny yellow between the more subdued yet closely related shades on the joinery.

9. Devise a colour comboTwo-tone kitchens are a growing contemporary trend as they depict a quirky, individual style. To continue the one-off look, a painted splashback in a contrasting colour will fit the bill. Be sure to select a durable kitchen paint that’s wipeable and you can change up the backdrop as many times as you like.
