A beautiful kitchen that I really liked is featured in the latest online issue of Trends Magazine. {this magazine has a special place in my heart as I worked there for many years}.

This kitchen has generous proportions and the architect Stephen Akehurst has taken a fresh approach to incorporating a butlers pantry and delivered this stunning design.

A wall had been placed in the middle of the kitchen to create two zones.  From this angle it looks like a standard kitchen with the rangehood and cooker centered.  But take a closer look and you can see behind the wall is a walk through butlers pantry.

This is fabulous…. I spy 2 dishwashers and another sink. What a great place stack all your plates after entertaining as no one can see the mess, love it! Also love those pantry cupboard doors with what looks like a metal mesh insert.

In the pic to the right, that has to be a beautiful large french door fridge/freezer hiding under that custom made cabinetry.  Oh its kitchen design heaven.

The lighting is a key to this amazing space.  There are 5 windows in the kitchen not including the large dining area ones.  I love that this kitchen has been designed around these, most kitchen are lucky to have one window.

 The lighting on the overhead cabinets is another way to create such a beautiful, light and airy space.

Note the paneled ceilings and stunning hardware. So much to love….10 out of 10 for functionality and style, this kitchen is going straight into my top 5.
