Flexibility, functionality and form unite in this superb family residence in Victoria’s rugged Mornington Peninsula.

Natural Style Kitchen

When Vibe Design Group’s Senior Designer and mother of three creates her dream family home with Principal Designer Michael O’ Sullivan, you know it’s worth paying attention. Inspired by the natural beauty of Victoria’s Mornington Peninsula, O’Sullivan worked with fellow designer and homeowner Katie Rees, to bring her vision to life. Essastone and Laminex were used to great effect throughout the project, and Katie shares, “We’re so pleased with the result. The products look wonderful, and are both durable and hardwearing which is so important in busy family life.”

Katie’s aspiration for flexible, multi-use family zones flowing seamlessly throughout the home has been made clear. “The spaces evolve harmoniously around our mayhem, and on weekends, they become entertaining areas for friends,” she explains. The innovative layout by Vibe Design Group achieves a seamless transition from indoor to outdoor living with an open-style design and by reflecting the surrounding Peninsula’s rugged allure in interior surfaces. Laminex Impressions in Sublime Teak welcomes a textural, organic warmth to the TV wall panels and cabinetry, and Essastone for the kitchen benchtops and bathroom vanities also calls upon the area’s raw, natural beauty.

The clever multi-tasking design extends to the kitchen area, where the Essastone island benchtop converts to a timber dining table. “When I work from home, the same space that was only moments ago our brekkie bar converts into a quiet contemplative space for creative work,” reveals Katie. The grey stone benchtop in Grigio Pezzato Gloss finish brings intensity and richness to the space, and delivers a pleasing textural balance to all the kitchen cabinetry in Laminex FormWrap Matte finish doors. And throughout the home, white painted walls anchor the natural finishes and beautifully frame the great outdoors beyond.
