The sparing use of stainless steel adds polish and elevates the overall aesthetic. Bethany designed a simple, geometric stainless steel leg for the island, to tie in with Maggie’s existing dining table and the blade shelf that sweeps across the rear wall.
The inclusion of integrated display shelving allows Maggie to add pops of personality and colour, Bethany says. ‘She’s able to put her own spin on things and make the space truly hers, with artworks and cookbooks and the little quirky pieces that she [owns]. It brings the kitchen to life.’
The kitchen was completed within three months – ‘quite a quick turnaround, given the space was completely gutted and the kitchen location moved’ – and Bethany adds Maggie was ‘thrilled’ with the result. ‘She spoke about how it’s really easy to use, she’s got the bench space that she wanted, it’s functional and clean and fresh, so she’s really happy with it.’
