For one creative Taranaki family looking to create their dream kitchen, effortless entertaining was key for their busy lives.

Homeowners Liejse, a florist and personal trainer, and husband Jason, a plumber and keen drummer, turned to kitchen designer Annika Rowson, of Rowson Kitchens, to bring their kitchen dreams to life. A neutral yet textured space which has been achieved in spades.

Top of their must have list – brass. Cleverly integrated throughout this kitchen design, brass appears via the stunning custom suspended hood, the island front panels (from Rivet) and the kitchen tap ware (Plumbline) and handles (Buster & Punch).
