This Melanie Craig kitchen design and open plan living room was created for a house built by local architects Archi Build. This house received Gold and a Kitchen Excellence Award in the Registered Master Builders House of the Year Southern Regionals.

WALK THROUGH / Cabinetry and shelving speak harmoniously to each other in a variety of finishes / Deep glassy green finger tiles shimmer reflectively in the backdrop / Vertical black panelling gives a refined finish to receding areas / Ergonomic spatial flow between kitchen work zones, with all bases covered / Large island with ample room for everyday and entertaining / Clustered lighting echoes the long light over the dining area / Delicious pattered wallpaper peeks out from the laundry room + scullery / Black seating with elegant line is light in the space / Open plan living - a palette repeated for cohesion and visual harmony / Light wood panelling in the lounge softens the space for cosy evenings by the fire / A sunny space to read and relax with ample space for seasonal home styling / Wood burner and wood storage is mirrored outdoors in a continuous line.


A rich pallet of green and black is accented with natural oak, with a particularly satisfying contrast between matte and gloss. Wood brings warmth to the heart of the kitchen, whilst letting the darker surfaces play off one another.


This kitchen design features ample storage and all the mod cons, however the refinement of the design means these functional details are kept inline without busy-ness.


This interior design with a paired down palette creates spaces for personal expression through home styling. With minimal colour, breathing room is left for floral + foliage displays, objects d'art, and textiles.
