Hamptons Farm Project Reveal: Kitchen & Butler’s Pantry

From the very start of the Hampton’s farm project design process, we decided early on that the kitchen was going to be the standout of the home. We all have heard the saying  the ‘kitchen is the heart of the home’, and these words have never rung truer than in this home.

Our design was always going to be typically Hampton’s, but I wanted a punch of personality, something not cookie cutter and a wow factor as soon as you see it. We choose to work with Colray Cabinets because we knew they would listen to our needs and not be afraid of trying something new. We also needed a great cabinet sprayer as we wanted it to be 2pk painted. The boys at DMS Spray Solutions were magician’s in this field and knew how we would get the best result, as we were knowingly going with a blue island, and it had to be perfect!

We deliberated over the bench tops, as we traditionally have always used a Marble Carrara bench top, but I knew we wanted it to be longer than 3 meters. and I also wanted something a little harder wearing. Constantino Silestone was suggested and I am so glad we chose such a hard-wearing product, the range they have is enormous and the looks are amazing. The biggest highlight for us is that they go slightly bigger in size too, which of course we loved!

Once the bench tops were decided next was the splash back. A splash back is always a huge decision as this is what makes everything else pop. Our choice of splash back in the kitchen was a gorgeous herringbone in a Carrara marble from Beaumont TilesThe sink had to be a butler sink, of course, and Parisi Sinks have always been a wonderful fit. To finish the Hampton’s kitchen off beautiful tapware was our next decision. Taps are a really important selection for me and Brodware has a huge range and colour way so I can’t go past them. The look here is so important to get right as this is a feature you can’t get wrong.

Butler’s Kitchen

Our butler’s kitchen was another major decision. This needed to be a pantry and a working kitchen that we could make into a beautiful space and be a functioning area. Living in a rural area you need to have stock of mostly everything, you can’t just pop into the local supermarket as the closest is 30mins+ away. I do tend to do form over function, but we needed to be more practical and storage was a huge factor in our decision making. The cabinets are from Timberline Cabinets, this is an incredible company that offers high end quality in a modular form, it ticked all our boxes!

Our benches in the butler’s kitchen were Medici Marble’s Granite, they not only supplied but installed our bench tops. In the butler’s pantry we wanted to keep the Carrara theme but be slightly quirkier. In keeping within the marble theme, the splash back patterns are in a wave style from Beaumont Tiles. We feel in love with it as soon as it was installed. To add a touch of colour into these rooms we used beautiful art pieces from Driftwood Interiors by Kerry Shipp. They have such an amazing range of prints, there is something for everyone.

We continued styling up our butler’s kitchen with a drink station, stunning glassware and other pieces that I loved to fill this space with joy. When it came to details and layers, which is really what makes a Hampton’s home, hardware is always at the top of our list. Our go to is always Tradco Hardware for the style and look.

Kitchen and butler’s area are a great starting point, this is where I start all my clients. These areas tend set the theme for the rest of your home. If you want more ideas and styling tips head to our Instagram @indahisland
