Rich jewel-toned kitchen cabinets contrasted with a white quartz surface for a vibrant, sumptuous kitchen. Tie together with soft grey walls to soften and create a truly inviting space. Glass top cabinets give the possibility of showcasing your prized glassware and pottery.

This kitchen showcases just how well the synergy between black and white works. Monochrome kitchens can be full of character, with display units showcasing crockery and cookbooks. A centralised island gives a sense of cohesion to the room, whilst the addition of rustic dining table and vintage rug add to the charm.

Create an eclectic wall display to add a touch of personality into your design. Lisa has created a fun plate wall as the centrepiece of her kitchen. Soft oak shelves and parquet flooring beautifully complement the soft grey cabinetry and the sleek white surface gives the illusion of blending into the walls, maximising the feeling of spaciousness.


Geraldine Tan @littlebigbell

Add some retro chic to your home by embracing pretty pastels. Play with retro floor tiles and honeycomb wall tiles to achieve a 1950s inspired interior. It’s the symmetry in this particular bathroom which really sets this design apart - consider his and hers sinks in your bathroom renovation. 


Rosa Park @rosaliapark

Embrace a simplistic, neutral colour palette like Cereal mag editor, Rosa Park. The charming putty shaker cabinets blend well with the soft walls. Using such shades are ideal in a period property, to create a sense of authenticity by emulating the classical styling.

The curved cabinets and soft powder pink that give the predominant influence to this design, achieve an ethereal, dream-like quality. Consider the use of shape and colour in your scheme for a captivating creation.

Add a touch of glamour like this Art Deco inspired scheme, which oozes opulence with its marbled worktop and metallic elements. Pretty pastel touches and an abundance of botanicals help to soften and bring life to the overall look.

Less really is more. To create a serene, Scandinavian inspired scheme, simplicity is the key to success. Natural elements are embraced with stone grey cabinets which flow into the grey-toned wooden flooring. The pale stone surface blends beautifully with the white walls to maximise spaciousness and feeling of light in the room.

Classical styling and embracing crisp whites and navy blues achieve a flawlessly elegant look. What could be considered dominating cabinets disappear into the walls behind, allowing for maximum storage whilst remaining discreet. The choice of a juxtaposing darker coloured island provides a central focus point for the room, whilst the white surrounding touches keep a sense of cohesion, proving that white is the best base colour for a bright and airy space.
