Minimal luxe kitchen style

Michelle Halford of The Design Chaser shares her concept for creating an elegant monochrome kitchen, with Fisher & Paykel.

THE INSPIRATION:
Elegant, with a touch of drama, this beautiful kitchen was created by Barcelona-based designer Katty Schiebeck of Katty Schiebeck Interior Design. I love a monochrome palette, and it doesn’t get more luxe than with graphic black and marble. A strong black island grounds the space and marble tiles add subtle depth underfoot. Luxurious floor-length curtains add texture to the all-white walls, while also softening the room.

The sleek Pyrolytic Built-in Oven by Fisher & Paykel enhances the kitchen’s luxe aesthetic with the added functionality of a generous capacity.

EXPERT STYLE TIPS:
Black magic: Opulent cabintery can be achieved in many ways, but a look I’m loving at the moment is black-stained wood. Pair this with a crisp marble-look bench top for a truly striking kitchen combo.
Cook in style: The sleek Pyrolytic Built-in Oven by Fisher & Paykel enhances the kitchen’s luxe aesthetic with the added functionality of a generous capacity. Meanwhile, the Combination Cook Top provides flexible cooking options; combining gas and induction to suit your style.
Be seated: A pair of locally-designed bar stools are often more affordable than you’d think! I’ve gone with the beautiful S2 stools by David Moreland here.
