rustic kitchens with style

Deirdre Brennan - Sunday, July 12, 2015

I am not sure if it is the marble/stone itself or the soft colour palette of the finishes in these kitchens but they do seem to all have a similar look and feel.  It is very much the look and feel that I love.


It is rustic, yet somehow of the moment. It exudes warmth as well as simply loads of style !!!


The brass detail for this suspended shelving compliments the brass tap ware perfectly .. rustic elegance !!


Super rustic .. and super slick.  What a fabulous combination.  The soft wash of light on the stone above is beautiful. I must say I do love a stylish table lamp in the kitchen. It softens what is often a harshly lit utility area and turns it instead into somewhere that is inviting to spend time in. This works particularly well in an open plan kitchen/family room situation. 


Perfect for washing those pots and pans ... sheer genius.

when a rustic interior isn't all rustic

Deirdre Brennan - Tuesday, September 02, 2014


There continues the trend for the earthy and rustic, natural materials, texture and a predominantly monochrome colour palette. On closer inspection it is really contemporary with an industrial edge.


There is a strong emphasis on collections and the owners possessions playing an integral part in the softening of the hard edges.  Ones books, paintings and photographs, the decoration and character, without which would be minimalist. 


A timeless monochrome palette with the addition and warmth of subtle shades of taupe, faded washed out grey, blue and green linens, leather, worn wood and stone.


There is something rather calming in these modern spaces with vintage detail ... the sense that we have been there before.
