Minimalist and contemporary features together in kitchens by Darren James
Australian interior designer Darren James has created a very interesting kitchen design where minimalist and contemporary features come together in a contrasting but harmonious design. Here you can see how minimalist elements usually found in Japanese designs are combined with contemporary Australian features.
The new kitchen design has simple lines and it combines rich wood finishes with organic elements. The result is a balanced look and a functional kitchen. The kitchen was created for a young family of four and it was designed as a statement for their unique character. It was envisaged as a relaxing and calm but also functional environment with elements from the Japanese architecture and contemporary structures.
The main characteristics of this beautiful kitchen are simplicity, minimalism, functionality and space. The designer managed to incorporate everything into the new design while also paying attention to the aesthetic part. He paid a lot of attention to details and this is visible in every little corner of the kitchen.
The kitchen features a butler’s pantry in the back that houses the refrigerator and some storage space for food. The kitchen also has simple cabinets with clean lines and recessed handles. The designer used natural materials and this creates a tranquil and almost zen effect. The Japanese influence is obviously strong but in a good way. It’s simple, functional and stylish at the same time.
