We begin our journey through The Judd House by stepping into the open plan living area, where an instant sense of space and light sets in. There are a number of stunning compartments to find within this expansive area, and what better place to start than with the kitchen?
The Judd House’s beautiful kitchen is the perfect multipurpose family hub, centring around a generous yet sleek island bench topped with Signorino’s Super White natural stone. Much loved for its bluish-grey tone and scattered navyish veining, Super White is a natural fit in a palette including similarly grey joinery, brass, fluted glass and black stained oak. It’s provides the exact balance of statement and softness that the kitchen required.
The slabs selected by Bec at Signorino Stone Gallery were from a premium batch that featured more tamed and delicate veining than most Super White, making them ideal in the restrained design. But the surprise bonus was the presence of subtle pink veins throughout the slabs, which made them absolute perfection for Bec and the vision for the home.
As you’d expect, the finishes in the adjoined butler’s pantry carry over from the kitchen to create a seamless flow. Within the simplified space the Super White commands the spotlight and lifts the room, here forming the splashbacks in addition to the benchtops.
