I haven’t posted a cool kitchen in a while, and there’s no time like the present to rectify that. Soon after opening the August issue of Living etc, I fell head over heels for the home of textile designer Diane Bergeron and her family. Located in an old Melbourne warehouse building, inside it’s about as un-warehouse as you can get. Colourful, elegant, feminine and quirky are all adjectives that come to mind here.
The kitchen is a slightly different space, though. Oh, it’s still elegant and quirky, but here is where the industrial warehouse aesthetic really shines. I love the (original!) metal door leading into the room, not to mention the vintage rolling ladder along the (cookbook?) wall. I also like the trio of retro pendant lights over the island, which together with some well-placed cast iron cookware, add colour to the room.
Overall, this is a room I’d love to cook in. It just seems so clean, bright, and user-friendly; exactly what a kitchen should be. Be sure to check out the rest of the home, too.
