The kitchen is divided into different colours to reduce its bulk and a surprise pink study inside it has its own little window. The front rooms were renovated to their former glory with replica plaster reinstated. A tasmanian Oak floor with a beautiful matt water based finish was selected by jess and its light and airy. this unifies the old and new parts. Colour was used playfully. Jess came up with a diverse colour scheme that somehow works really well. The wallpaper in the hall is warm and luxurious.
What Houzz contributors are saying:
20. Firm: Danny Broe ArchitectA yellow backsplash, sandwiched between white wall cabinets and grey base cabinets, gives the kitchen section a neat and colourful look.
Here news that may disappoint a few new homeowners: A kitchen island is terrible for feng shui, especially if you have the stove there.“The stove will be exposed to qi from all angles by placing it in the centre of the kitchen. Thus, the food cooked on the stove will be affected by negative qi, resulting in health problems,” says Yap.

Location: Sydney, NSWWhy we love itWhile it’s by no means the smallest one in our collection, this kitchen designed by Danny Broe Architect in a renovated Victorian cottage captured our attention. We adore the way the architect has used four blocks of colour to to define the different zones within the kitchen, and how the large window fills the space with light.
