Black + White...

Another fabulous kitchen....I could spend the day cooking for Christmas in this space! I love the addition of the sitting area which was added by reconfiguring the laundry space and the little built-in desk. Knocking out the laundry also provided the space to accommodate an island bench.

The black and white statement continues with the striped fabric on the breakfast banquette and I love the aluminium custom made table. My dream kitchen would have a butlers pantry and this one tucked around the corner would do me just fine!

I love the black and white. It's so crisp and clean. And that sitting space is the perfect place to relax with a snack and tasty beverage.

Hi Amanda
Great kitchen. You can't beat Black & White for it's fresh appeal. I like the wall lamp and sofa.. somewhere to relax and watch someone else do the cooking .. he he

Oh, black and white kitchens are the best! This one is gorgeous and I have it saved in my kitchen file.

Cooking with a butlers pantry (especially with its own sink area) would be the best.

A very happy and fabulous Christmas to you and your family xx
