Step inside a cutting-edge Melbourne cottage
The property An 1980s-built bungalow in Melbourne, Australia
The space An open plan kitchen/living/dining area, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, plus an outdoor entertaining area.
The owners wanted the kitchen to be part of the living space, yet blend in, so they've chosen one that's the same colour as the walls. 'The shadows that the chandelier throws at night look wonderful against the limed ceiling,' says the owner.
The Aplad kitchen at IKEA is like this.
