The addition of a brass tap introduces a gilded accent to the kitchen, offering both a contrast and an enhancement to the overall tranquil aesthetic.
Appliances that blend harmoniously with the kitchen
Yvonne's decision to employ integrated appliances results in the dishwasher, refrigerator, and freezer being discreetly tucked away behind the mocha-toned kitchen surfaces. This choice fosters a tidy aesthetic and imparts a serene ambiance to the kitchen.
For those seeking an alternative to integrated appliances that also adheres to the tone-on-tone design, selecting appliances in hues that align with the kitchen cabinet fronts presents an effective solution.
Elegant kitchen solutions
The marble worktop introduces an air of luxury to the kitchen, seamlessly aligning with the timeless allure of the classic patrician villa. Marble is not only resilient but also effortlessly cared for, with an array of hues and patterns to choose from.
The subtle design provides room for artwork on the walls, infusing a modern touch. The trend of incorporating art into the kitchen offers fresh avenues to fashion distinctive statements within your culinary space.

Optimizing space in a corner kitchen
Yvonne's kitchen boasts a corner layout that offers a generous dining area while maintaining ample worktop space for cooking tasks. This arrangement ensures a smooth flow between the essential areas of the kitchen: the sink, hob, and refrigerator.
A common challenge in corner kitchens is making the most of the corner space. Yvonne tackled this by installing a convenient shelf that accommodates her frequently used items, adding practicality to the kitchen's design.
Continuing the harmonious tone-on-tone aesthetic, cabinets extend to the ceiling above the shelf, contributing to the overall tranquil atmosphere of the kitchen.
