The kitchen is a mix & match [*hopefully not too much of a mismatch] 
The run down on the kitchen is:
The drawers use the blum pull-out systems. Some of the cupboards are pullouts for oils, herbs & oven trays.
The pantry has blum pull-out drawers.
The counter tops are essastone & stainless steel.
The cupboards are laminex in 3 different colourways.
Floors are polished pine.
The appliances are a mix of Miele [steamer, oven & warming draw], Bosch [dishwasher], Highland [rangehood], & Siemens [cooktop].

On my wish list when our +10year old refrigerator expires, which I don’t think will be any time soon as it is extremely robust, a Smeg retro refrigerator
But in what colour?



  1. My oh my! Your kitchen looks stunning!!!

    Our steamer and oven went in this morning. I am so excited :)

    What are your faves to make in the steamer?


  2. I am utterly jealous! Your kitchen is gorgeous. Is that a wine fridge I spy in the bottom left hand corner!!!!!! I don't even have a dishwasher (no room in current house but have purchased one for new house) Not sure about what colour to go for Smeg fridge. I'm tempted to say go crazy and pick the most outlandish colour there is ;)


  3. Hi B, favorite meal at the moment is poached eggs in the morning. Steam at 100 for 3.5 minutes & season with a bit of pepper. Very simple. Then prawns steamed in Chinese Spoons w plum dipping sauce. Yum. KP

    Hi Kel,It is a wine fridge, you need one up here. Smeg has such a great colour range, endless. KP

  4. P.S. 3.5 minutes is set for 3mins & leave in a bit longer. 4mins is too long.

  5. I just bought one of these little beauties for my beach apartment. I bought the cream, but it was a toss up between the light blue and the cream. My decision in the end came down to my short interest span....I knew if I went for any bold colour I would tire of it easily. x

  6. I love it! Fantastic job! Love your windows! Kitchen heaven. A-M xx

  7. Loving your kitchen, it looks fantastic. The fridge that is hard one as there is so many gorgeous colours to choose. Mimi xx

  8. Hello from another Townsvillian! Love your kitchen and I have a retro-style Smeg on my future wishlist as well :) I'm leaning toward the red or black personally!

  9. I love your kitchen too! I love the look of your stainless steel benchtops. Fantastic! xx
