Black gloss wall tiles behind the cooktop enhance the depth of the aubergine, while chrome door handles and stainless steel appliances work as a crisp contrast. “I added a few decorative items and touches of green for freshness and interest,” says the owner. For flooring, the owners choose colored concrete with a large grid imprint. The concrete adds warmth and texture to the room and creates interesting effects when combined with timber. Linda Christensen developed the concrete theme by introducing a Trowel laminate benchtop across two sides of the kitchen. “Trowel laminate looks like concrete. It has all the swirls and smears you get when you run a trowel over wet concrete. It has a totally smooth finish although it creates an almost three-dimensional textured appearance” she says.

The last thing the owners of this new townhouse wanted was a simple kitchen. As a young, vibrant working couple, they were eager to stamp their own personality on their kitchen layout.
