Functional yet stylish

“We are Mediterranean. We love sunlight, enjoying terraces and outdoor spaces, friends and family. That was our premise when planning this kitchen, the Brava Kitchen, for Casa Decor 2010”, says interior designer Sara Folch. This commission came from TPC, a kitchen manufacturer and distributor with whom Sara had previously worked. TPC wanted Sara to design their top of the range kitchen, with all the features that any kitchen needs but without compromising on style or elegance.

Warm colours and seasonal vegetables

“The idea I came up with was to make an outdoor kitchen in a very Mediterranean style. It has a surface area of 100 m2 and is set in a porch. It was autumn when we fitted the kitchen, so it was prepared for the colder months”.

Warm colours in shades of sand, olive green and aubergine were chosen to symbolise autumn vegetables and add a touch of colour to the kitchen. “We also designed the furniture cladding, the textures and the layout. Electrical appliances were hidden, just the way I like it, and opened thanks to a motor that made the doors slide”.

Silestone: textured surfaces

We also wanted to create a vegetable garden in the central area of the kitchen. It all depended on the large island. “It measured 6 x 1.6 m and was divided into two areas, a cooking area and a wet area, in addition to the dining space”. Silestone Cygnus15 was the colour chosen by Sara.

“We wanted to try something different from what we had done so far, mainly gloss based, so I chose the matt, textured surface of Silestone. It is also a durable, easy to clean surface. It offers a wonderful range of colours to suit our projects, and the different thicknesses available allow for wall and worktop applications.

Thanks to its properties in terms of hardness and durability, Silestone Cygnus15 was also the surface chosen for the benches, perfectly reflecting the style intended to be conveyed.

Swing-like hanging velvet sofas in the same colour scheme as the rest of the kitchen and placed in front of an electric fireplace from which to observe the kitchen, added a touch of glamour to the project.
