My bright graphic kitchen

Some of my Flemish readers might have already noticed that this month our kitchen got featured in interior magazine Feeling Wonen!

I’m so happy to be able to show off my bright kitchen with these great photos shot by the lovely Stefanie Faveere.

Because both my husband and me are graphic designers our kitchen came out very bold and graphic. It’s also the biggest colour statement in our apartment. Most of our walls are white to compensate for the not so high ceilings so we wanted to make the kitchen pop out. The cupboards are actually just standard Ikea. The doors on the other hand are made to order and spray painted. To make the colour not too dominating we hung white open shelves and kept the counter tops and kitchen hood white.

At first we wanted a Corian counter top but after seeing the price (small heart attack) we opted for composite granite. On the bonus side it’s also easier to clean, very durable and environmental friendly since it’s made out of leftover granite.

The tiles of the backsplash are a reissue of a pattern form the sixties (Kho Liang Le from Mosa) and are great fun because you can combine your own pattern.

Most of our kitchen appliances are from Smeg: oven, hood and – my pride and joy – fridge. The lamps are from Habitat.
