French photographer and blogger Loïs Moreno and her family have always dreamed of having a house that embodied freedom and simplicity. A place to fill with life, on a personal and professional level. Loïs’ husband is a baker and, because of this, they wanted the kitchen to serve a purpose: organising cooking workshops for quality-food lovers. The result is a creative and gastronomical lab inside a large kitchen, without losing any of its warmth.

It was very clear for the family at Maison Source that the kitchen should be the center of the home; a large and functional space adapted to their needs. High-quality raw materials would be their main ally for achieving the desired result. Both wood and stone are the star materials in this room of the house, where sunlight moves freely, making it cosy and practical for everyday life.
The kitchen countertop and backsplahes have been designed using Dekton Olimpo. A design with personality and strength, inspired by the finest Carrara marble. It brings the elegance of a grey-hued vein as the main character over a white background, enhancing all its details with a dazzling sheen.
Olimpo is one of the colors from the Stonika by Cosentino collection. A collection that merges with nature to create classic colors of a hyper-realist beauty and vibrant textures with an antique look, but bringing the highest technological features of a revolutionary surface. Dekton is inspired by the beauty of nature, while providing all the advantages for a daily maintenance.
Loïs, who is originally from Spain, tells us that she has known Cosentino for a long time. And Dekton, thanks to its high resistance and versatility, became the favorite material for her and her family to be part of their home.
Loïs and her husband were looking for a surface that was both durable and practical, but above all, easy to maintain. Dekton is highly resistant to heat, scratches and stains. It is also non-porous, which makes it quick and easy to clean. Besides, it does not need any special treatment. The easy care and the advantages of these surfaces seemed to tick all the boxes for Loïs’ busy family life and professional activities. For them, it was vital to keep domestic chores in the kitchen as simple as possible.
As for the color, Loïs says that they chose Olimpo because of its elegance and shine. A color that provides the aesthetics of marble without its flaws. In combination with wood, this color gives a very minimalist look to the kitchen area which opens onto the living room. The modern beauty of Dekton Stonika gives the kitchen the straight and clean lines that were sought by the owners of Maison Source.
