The Peronace’s Kitchen – Hunters Hill, Sydney

Shaws sinks are featured in designs all across the world from inside a small converted DHL van travelling across Europe to a Michelin star restaurant, Oaxen Krog & Slip, in Stockholm. This month we travel to the North Shore of Sydney to a classic harbourside property offering stunning views of the Parramatta River and Lane Cove River.

The homeowners commissioned Dégabriele Kitchens and Interiors to design a scheme centered around taking advantage of their spectacular location and showcasing the property’s beautiful views of the harbour. The brief was to create a contemporary kitchen with a relaxed and traditional feel, coupled with design touches that celebrated classic home comforts and local craftsmanship. Their vision was a bright, open kitchen that maximises natural light and creates the perfect environment for entertaining.

Dégabriele installed an imposing kitchen island that provides a focal point in the space and creates a place for guests to congregate when the couple are entertaining. The bright white cabinetry is finished with Bianco Statuario porcelain worktops that add a subtle elegance and keep the space cool, light and airy.

Choosing the sink

The main feature of the back-run of cabinets is the statement double-bowled Shaws Ribchester 800 sink which really helps to define the luxurious and clever kitchen design. The practical, hardwearing glazed fire-clay sink works wonderfully surrounded by the Bianco Statuario porcelain.

The stylish addition of comfortable built-in seating below the large panoramic windows creates the perfect opportunity for more socialising, or alternatively simply sitting and relaxing alone with a good book and a glass of Shiraz, whilst soaking up the stunning Sydney sunset at the end of a long day.
