AN IMPACTFUL DISPLAY

AN ENTERTAINER’S DREAM

This custom-designed kitchen was built to the clients’ requests for an impactful yet welcoming statement space. To meet the brief perfectly, Darren James Interiors combined a striking earth-toned colour palette with sleek cabinetry. The kitchen features high-grade appliances, durable surfaces and designated work zones to cater for the clients’ social lifestyle. The green splashback adds a unique and lively appeal to the space, while contrasting beautifully with the cabinetry and natural-wood elements. Glass display drawers were installed under the island benchtop to provide a great place to feature the clients’ sentimental pieces.

The open overhead shelving faces the adjoining living room to showcase larger items without diminishing bench or storage space.

The concrete island benchtop is cantilevered to ensure adequate bench space for entertaining and cooking. A galley- style layout was chosen to maximise efficiency within the space, without imposing on the living area.

A butler’s pantry was installed behind a beautiful blackbutt barn door to increase storage space and make entertaining breeze. As per the clients’ requests, a functional beverage centre was installed on one side of the kitchen. The centre includes holds a large coffee machine, a custom-made hanging wine-glass rack and an integrated drinks fridge.

Whether you are redesigning and renovating your kitchen, relocating or remodelling a bathroom, or planning to embark on a large interior renovation for your entire house or apartment, Darren James Interiors will take the stress out of the design and renovation process. From start to finish, the company offers a complete design-and-construct service for residential interiors.

Project 1

ESCAPE THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE

A RELAXED AND INVITING ENVIRONMENT

Positioned on an elevated block with sweeping panoramic views of Brisbane, this sprawling family home is set in a sought-after area but the owners, felt the kitchen was lacking the aesthetic appeal home’s appeal that was present throughout the rest of the home.

To restore the dark and poky kitchen, Kris and Stephan enlisted the help of Darren James Interiors. Tackling the project head-on, Darren James Interiors successfully created a free-flowing, open-plan kitchen with plenty of natural light.

The north and south walls that connect the kitchen to the living area were lowered, the wall openings were widened and the door heads were removed to create a seamless transition between the kitchen and the rest of the home.

Featuring an abundance of storage, a white Miele pyrolytic oven and a utility cupboard, the kitchen is a calm and minimalistic area that makes use of the available space and contains all the conveniences of modern living. The central feature of kitchen is the 1.75m utility cupboard that has been perfectly concealed via an automatic lift mechanism, which was imported from America.

HUB OF THE HOME

SPACE AND STYLE

Darren James Interiors has achieved a stylish and inviting environment with this kitchen project, creating a hub for the whole family to enjoy. Designed with effortless entertaining in mind, this kitchen centres on bringing people together in a space made for cooking, eating, and socialising.

Simple contemporary features enhance the kitchen’s minimalist-feel, while the spacious layout encourages usability and flow, allowing a few people to work and play in the kitchen simultaneously. The naturally light-filled space is a pure haven, and its raw wooden accents and neutral palette lend a subtle serenity to the kitchen.

The expansive L-shaped Caesarstone benchtop in ‘Frosty Carina’, combined with Bouchon brushed veneers, adds a natural texture and understated finish. The bench itself provides the perfect congregation point for residents and their guests.

The space features plenty of storage, allowing for a clean and uncluttered area, and Blum Aventos lift systems and Blum Intivo drawers take the kitchen’s modern design up a notch.

Project 3

COASTAL LUXE

LIVING WITH A TOUCH OF GLAM

For this project, Darren James Interiors was provided with a brief to create a highly functional kitchen that’s perfect for entertaining, and makes the most of the amazing view. The client requested a ‘beach chic’ aesthetic that incorporates elements of Gold Coast glitz and glam.

Structural changes were made to the space to improve its layout and make the workspaces and appliances easily accessible. The original heavy-stepped bulkhead was replaced with a modern high ceiling, which creates a seamless transition between the kitchen and the rest of the apartment.

Displaying exceptional skill and creativity, Darren James Interiors accommodated this change by relocating the air- conditioning system, creating a new lighting layout, and incorporating the fixed plumbing and waste components into the new design.

To enhance the kitchen’s modern aesthetic and make entertaining a breeze, an impressive range of state-of-the-art Gaggenau appliances was incorporated into the design, including an oven, a combi-steam oven, and a microwave, each with an attractive glass front door.

The cooking zone features warming drawers, a Vario cooktop, a marble-clad concealed rangehood, and a stainless steel benchtop, which complements the large, open floating shelves above. The nearby integrated Liebherr fridge with Fisher & Paykel drawers encourages a streamlined aesthetic.

The balanced use of materials in this kitchen creates timeless visual appeal. The integrated dining tabletop is crafted from honed Indian Jet Black granite, while the two-pack cabinetry features a contemporary gloss finish. The island bench features a stylish Smeg sink and a honed Calacatta marble benchtop, which beautifully complements the painted white glass splashback.

The client loved the look of polished concrete, but since this was unavailable for the flooring, a similar seamless finish was achieved using large 3m tiles instead.
