Traditional Kitchens

Roundup

We’ve whipped up a collection of our favourite ‘traditional’ kitchens from the TDF Homes archive.

Think rustic, farm-house homestead vibes, with open shelving, well-worn materials and collections of much loved utensils, chopping boards and heirloom ceramics on display.

 

13th September, 2017

The Byron Bay home of Anna and Andrew Swain and their family. Kitchen and living area with French armoire pantry and factory pigeon holes in hallway. Photo – . Production – Lucy Feagins / Btslive.

Anna and Andrew use a pine pigeon hole storage solution sourced from Raw Vintage in Bangalow. Photo – . Production – Lucy Feagins / Btslive.

Behind the epic stove is a black-oxide rendered feature wall. The egg basket was purchased from an antique market in Burma. Photo – . Production – Lucy Feagins / Btslive.

Dark and Moody

Kitchens often tend towards the white and bright, but the Byron Bay home of Anna and Andrew Swain showcases the power of a deeper palette.

The black-oxide rendered feature wall here is a striking focal point for stainless steel appliances and utensils, and is a robust, hard-wearing surface perfectly suited to the most high-traffic room in the house.

 

The Gippsland farmhouse of Tamsin Carvan and family. The kitchen was designed and handcrafted by Tamsin’s partner Allan. Photo – , production – Lucy Feagins / Btslive.

Salvaged Surfaces

The Gippsland farmhouse of Tamsin Carvan and family is a firm favourite of ours!

Tamsin’s partner, Allan, is a talented handyman/ furniture maker who crafted all the cupboards and shelves from old Baltic pine floorboards, and made the workbenches from various reclaimed timbers.  This eclectic mix of reclaimed timbers lends a distinct homely character to this well loved, hard-working kitchen.

Produce on Show

The kitchen of Matt and Lentil Purbrick of Grown and Gathered is, of course, a gallery space for their craft: making preserves from the organic fruit and vegetables they grow on their Tabilk property in central Victoria.

Subway Tiles

One of the cheapest and easiest tiling solutions for a traditional-style kitchen (or bathroom) is the classic white ‘subway tile’, seen here in the beautiful Melbourne home of Amanda Henderson-Marks and Michael Marks.

The couple’s kitchen adopts the classic combo of white subway tiles with concrete bench tops made by Michael.  Above, floating shelves display Amanda’s much loved collections of chopping boards and ceramics.

The country cottage of Jess Wootten and Krystina Menegazzo in Gordon, Victoria. Photo – , production – Lucy Feagins / Btslive.

The kitchen features vintage Salter scales from an antique store in Yarraville, hanging breadboard a wedding gift, Turkish copper coffee pot from Turkey, and many other thing treasured pieces! Photo – , production – Lucy Feagins / Btslive.

Compact but Clever

The country cottage of Jess Wootten and Krystina Menegazzo in Gordon, Victoria, incorporates a tiny, but perfectly appointed little kitchen.

Open shelving, with kitchenware and utensils all positioned for easy access make the compact kitchen a surprisingly functional, hard-working space.

Optimising Light and Vistas

The kitchen of Elizabeth Barnett, Blake Byron-Smith and family in Macedon is truly what farmhouse kitchen dreams are made of!

This beautiful, light-filled space is enviable for its generous scale, its classic materials palette (yep, more subway tiles), its boundless natural light and uninterrupted views out across the property.

 

The home of Natasha Morgan and family, Oak & Monkey Puzzle, in Daylesford. The mudroom houses Natasha’s preserves. Photo – for Btslive.

Weathered Beauty

The home of Natasha Morgan and family, Oak & Monkey Puzzle, just outside Daylesford is a layered, eclectic farmhouse which brings together a great variety of original materials, aged patinas and textures.

The mudroom adjacent to the kitchen is almost entirely in its original condition, complete with rustic (and slightly wonky) weatherboards and a charming, impossibly narrow timber door.

Lynda Gardener’s ‘The White Room’, featuring a medical cabinet, industrial trolley and an eclectic collection of white-on-white kitchenware and accessories. Photo – . Production – Lucy Feagins / Btslive.

White on White

Lynda Gardener and Mark Smith’s converted-warehouse home in North Fitzroy adopts Lynda’s signature crisp white-on-white palette, with antique and rustic details layered to perfection. This distinctive aesthetic defines each of Lynda’s design and decoration projects – and shows just how versatile and powerful a lick of white paint can be!

, pictured above, is actually the accommodation at the rear of Lynda and Mark’s home, and is available to rent.
