Tour an Australian Home With a Gorgeous Blue-and-White Kitchen

At first glance, this couple’s kitchen looked fine. White cabinets and white subway tile gave it a light and bright appearance. And it had a large island. “Upon closer inspection, I could see that all the insides of the cupboards were falling apart,” says designer Danielle Bonello-Dunsford, who was hired by the couple to update the space. “And the white kitchen was not the right color for the space. Everything was a little bit too white and it wasn’t the right balance for the room.” Meanwhile, the large rectangular island impeded traffic flow for the couple, who often cook together.

To address the issues, Bonello-Dunsford, who used Houzz Pro software to manage the project, started over. She designed a new island with curved ends to smooth out circulation paths and gave it a muted blue that pops against light gray perimeter cabinets. A sense of symmetry delivers a calm vibe, and new French doors maximize views of the garden.

In an en suite bathroom, Bonello-Dunsford created a luxury hotel look with white tongue-and-groove wainscoting, powdery pink backsplash tile and a custom vanity. And she gave a powder room a wow factor with a vibrant botanical print wallpaper.

A functional, understated light fixture over the island - I don't have to look any further to know the whole thing is well thought out and completely designed without being over designed. Kudos - atta boy/girl.

Wow this is the third curved island I've seen like this in as many days, I sense a growing trend!
