Cantilever Interiors Custom K2 Kitchen - Mills Street project

 

A beautiful townhouse in the Melbourne bayside suburb of Albert Park has been given new life with a contemporary kitchen from Cantilever Interiors that blends seamlessly with the existing architecture and provides maximum function and style in a narrow space.

The kitchen in the Mills Street home is central to a new extension at the back of the house. A testament to understated luxury, it has the clean, minimalist lines of Cantilever Interiors’ celebrated K2 Series and its classic white palette includes a splashback made from handcrafted Anchor ceramics tiles.

As classic terrace house, the width of the home is quite narrow and the Cantilever Interiors design maximises space with an island bench that is 700mm deep. “All the services, such as the sink and the cooktop, are on the perimeter, so there is a clear surface for prepping and serving,” explains Travis Dean, Cantilever Interiors director and co-founder. “In small spaces, the island bench real estate needs to be multi-purpose. In the case of this kitchen, the owner is an avid baker and uses the open space on the island for rolling pastry and kneading bread.”

The service-free island bench also features two blackbutt veneer open mitred boxes, which not only provide functional storage space but also add further texture and warmth to the design. Timber accents are also introduced through open shelf for displaying personal objects.

The classic, sophisticated style of the kitchen complements the overall design of the home and maximises functionality in a narrow space. Like all Cantilever Interiors kitchens, it fits perfectly with how the owners like to live.

Cantilever Interiors - Bloomfield Road, Custom Kitchen

Cantilever Interiors is renowned for designing and installing elegant and sustainable kitchens – and they have gone a step further with this stylish inner-city Melbourne home.

Cantilever’s designs extend beyond the heart of this home to create a wonderfully balanced, consistent style throughout the key areas. In addition to its celebrated kitchen designs, Melbourne-based Cantilever Interiors
draws upon the furniture design background of co-owners Travis Dean and Charlie Wilde to create beautifully simple, highly functional residential cabinetry.

A consistent palette of White Two Pack, American Oak Veneer and Caeserstone ‘Snow’ Recon bench tops create a sense of harmony between the key areas of the home. The simple, timeless colours promote design endurance while creating an elegant backdrop for the owners to express their personal style.

The kitchen’s concrete floors are complemented by a simple palette and the
design features a fresh white subway tile splash back and integrated appliances, creating a feeling of lightness and space. Inspiring yet attainable, Cantilever’s designs for the Ascot Vale home promote a sense of continuity throughout the home.

Interior designer, stylist and product designer, Mr Jason Grant has just released his own collection of handmade tiles and we think that they are heavenly!

Jason joined forces with tile company Di Lorenzo to design the encaustic tile collection that is inspired by his love for Bondi and Byron Bay which has been appropriately named 'New Paradise'

The range is available in four shapes - hexagon, mini brick, diamond and square - and comes in seven beautiful pastel hued tones. Perfect for your bathroom, kitchen, laundry or for your floors, New Paradise will add a touch of the beach life into your home. 

“In this new range you’ll find subtle, muted pretty shades and neutrals, perfect for any space,” says Grant.

We have the biggest interior crush on Mim Design and love love love everything that they do and create.. their attention to detail, material selection and all round amazingness blows us away each and every project they do. 

Our current fave is their JBC residence in Brighton, Victoria which saw the complete rebuild of an Edwardian 1930’s home. It was a collaboration between Mim Design and architecture firm, Nixon Tulloch Fortley.

'The interior reflects the clients requirement for a light, bright and easy living home. Contrasts through texture, form and material were essential in melding original details with new additions.'

Here is some super luxe and super divine Interior Design inspo for your Wednesday...

Fiona Lynch Office does it again with The Lara Boot Factory in Fitzroy, Melbourne. The space was originally converted into a living space by Ivan Rijavec in the 1980s - most recently Fiona Lynch Office was approached by the new owner "to create a private and relaxing retreat, one that offered space and storage for his extensive collection of books and art, in the midst of a bustling neighbourhood".

Blending old and new, the house embraces a refined interior, with bold use of materials and bespoke joinery, while respectfully preserving the original architectural elements. The darker tones, materials and textures are such a beautiful contrast against the concrete and white walls within the space, it makes me want a black kitchen with black stone so much.

Fitzroy House was awarded a High Commendation in the Single Residential category at the 2016 Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) in Sydney. Fitzroy House was also awarded the Belle Coco Republic Interior Design Award for Best Bathroom in 2016.

Stunning Mutina Tiles from Urban Edge Ceramics...

 

We think of tiles for use in mostly bathrooms but trust me they can make such an incredible impact in so many space of your home - think kitchen splash backs, floors, laundry's, fireplaces, table tops... the list goes on.

Our latest tile crush is Mews by Mutina at Urban Edge Ceramics. Mews is industrially made in porcelain stoneware with a coloured mass dough. The collection has been designed with both contemporary and traditional use in mind. The variety of neutral tones allows the tiles to be a focal point or a backdrop in any interior scheme.

The Mews collection is inspired by the landscape, the history and the personality of the British capital, and by the huge variety of textures characterising its infrastructures, such as bricks, wooden floors and irregular geometrical patterns. The collection consists of 6 base colours: chalk, fog, pigeon, lead, ink and soot, each of which contains a palette of 15 different shades. This wide colour range adds depth and movement to the tiled surface making it rich and remarkable.
