Supported by Caesarstone

One of my favourite things to do is design kitchen schemes so when Caesarstone released their new Whitelight Collection of quartz surfaces, I couldn’t wait to get concepting! All the new Caesarstone designs are inspired by natural stone, such as marble and granite, in on-trend colours.

Serene and soft kitchen scheme

There’s a shift towards earthier colours and textures in interiors and Caesarstone’s new ‘Adamina’ hits this interior design trend on the head. 

Inspired by the golden hues of sandstone and travertine, it has a softly mottled pattern that fits perfectly into any warm kitchen scheme. 

Use it with darker finishes to create a luxe retreat vibe or pair it with lighter materials to achieve a modern coastal scheme as I’ve done below.

Oak timber picks up on the subtle brown flecks in the quartz, while pops of white in the joinery and tile splashback brighten the space. Other natural elements, such as the wicker pendant light and kitchen décor, finish off the space.

Contemporary luxe kitchen scheme

Dialling up the drama is this dark and moody kitchen scheme inspired by Caesarstone’s ‘Calacatta Maximus’design. Replicating the look of natural marble — but for a fraction of the cost and without the maintenance — it’s a beautiful pattern with soft grey and delicate copper veining.

Working just as well in a light kitchen scheme, I decided on a sophisticated darker palette with black timber veneer joinery, black tapware and sink, architectural track lighting and minimalist accessories.

By using a pared back palette of materials, it allows the complex layering and detail in ‘Calacatta Maximus’ pattern to be the hero of the space.

Timeless and elegant kitchen scheme

There’s no denying Hamptons design is taking off in Australia so for my next kitchen scheme, I’m playing to this design style. 

Featuring the ‘Aterra Blanca’ benchtops and splashback, this Caesarstone design captures the beauty of natural marble with subtle veining and strokes. It’s an understated quartz that offers timeless appeal.  

Signature shaker profile doors are given a modern twist with slimline black hardware. And these black accents are repeated in the ornate tapware and lighting.

Earthy décor, such as wicker baskets and unglazed ceramics, complete the design.

Bold kitchen scheme that makes a statement

For those of you who like to go big or go home, this final kitchen scheme is for you! Featuring the boldest of Caesarstone’s latest designs, ‘Arabetto’, it’s a kitchen scheme that doesn’t hold back.

‘Arabetto’ is being called the marble of tomorrow. It has dynamic grey veins interlacing with jade and copper across a crisp, white polished surface. 

Dark blue joinery is the perfect complement to this quartz pattern, and I’ve chosen the hue ‘Kara Sea’. Brushed gold accents pick up on the metallic veining of the stone and add to the luxe factor of this kitchen.
