Kitchen Island Bench

The kitchen and living area really is the heart of the home, fellow interior designer at Bloom. “The space and layout just work so well. The kitchen design really encompasses the style of contemporary classic with a slightly industrial edge.” The darkly hued island bench is definitely a stand out feature and works in unison with the new herringbone pattern oak parquetry flooring. Keep in mind that contemporary does not necessarily mean austere, and an overall simple colour palette is a wonderful opportunity to choose fun and bold additions to make things ‘pop’, such as splashbacks, lighting or even everyday kitchen accessories, such as the yellow jars and long board in the example kitchen above.
