A day of styling at Southern Innovations new showroom

Last week you may have seen behind the scenes shots on Instagram of the kitchen and bathroom displays we styled for Southern Innovations.

It was so fun to step away from behind the blog and get hands on for a day of styling in their ah-mazing new showroom, styling 4 SieMatic kitchens, a kitchen buffet, 2 bathroom vanities, and some drawers too. Phew!

Classic kitchen

The ‘Classic’ SieMatic kitchen is all about elegance and minimalism, embracing timeless craftsmanship. Keeping with this style, we kept the styling in this kitchen restrained with touches of marble and white flowers.

Pure kitchens

Earthy touches with hints of brass were our inspiration in the first ‘Pure’ kitchen, designed for entertaining. We love the sculptural design of this kitchen — handless cabinetry and large open shelf in the island.

The second ‘Pure’ kitchen is designed for family living. We brought more warmth to this space with timber and natural accessories to create a ‘lived in’ feel.

Urban kitchen and buffet

The final kitchen is our fave! ‘Urban’ is about embracing green living, creativity and individuality. We styled the space with black and white artwork by Matthew Broughton from bluethumb, and ceramics by Bison and Zakkia.

Concrete vanity

This beautiful concrete-look vanity with black tap has a masculine feel that we played on with Bison ceramics, black marble soap dish and Ninnho towel.

Timber vanity

We wanted to give this timber vanity a more feminine feel and created the look using timber and brass candle from TANDA, brass hammered bowl from Zakkia, and brightly coloured towel from Ninnho.

  1. Hi
    I have been following your page during your build. So exciting. I’m now ready to choose kitchen colours and just love the ‘Classic’ SieMatic kitchen you did for Southern Innovations. Could you share the splashback, stone countertop and the colour cupboards? Thank you

    • Hi Leane

      So sorry for the late reply, we missed your comment until now! Thanks for your lovely feedback and so exciting you’re ready to start planning your kitchen!! It can be a tricky space to design… not wanting to stick to just white but also not wanting to make selections that could date quickly. The ‘Classic’ kitchen is a beautiful timeless kitchen that will definitely stand the test of time though!

      Here is the info you’re after:
      – splashback: ‘Dekton’ by Cosentino (http://www.silestoneoceania.com/)
      – stone countertop: ‘Bianco Rivers’ by Siematic (light stone) and ‘Dekton’ by Cosentino (dark stone)
      – joinery finish ‘Stirling Grey’ Gloss by Siematic
