The house needed a complete renovation and, as part of the work, the kitchen was moved to a new location.

“The owners didn’t want the space to be too crowded and were keen on an industrial theme,” designer Stewart MacPherson says. They also hoped to display items collected over many years and to squeeze in their sizable range.

But their most important wish was for the kitchen to have character, so the jumping-off point turned out to be a material. The couple fell in love with a copper countertop that would develop a patina rather than look pristine. The beautiful metallic finish and the dark floor informed the colors for the rest of the room design.

Floor tiles: Mandarin Stone
