You may or may not be aware that when Minosa was first established by Simona & myself, we started as an interior design company. We focused and specialised in Kitchen & bathroom design, kitchens have been a labour of love for the both of us.
The current release of Home Beautiful Top 40 Kitchens (for 2009) has brought back some fantastic memories for Minosa and those associated with us. We have two of our kitchens featured in this edition, the first one on page 40 "Hide & Seek" as the header was designed in early 2003 and commissioned early in 2004. This kitchen was awarded by the HIA (Housing Industry of Australia) in 2005, this was the first project we had worked on with Architect Denis Morgan. Denis also introduced us to Scott Fuller of Special Lights on Crown. This was the first of many projects we have worked on with Scott.
The second kitchen on page 134 "All in One" was designed in March of 2004 and installed a few months later. This was a great challenge to us at the time as our clients wanted to open up their 12m2 space and create an open plan living dining & kitchen area, the only problem with that was that it limited the amount of wall space we had to place joinery. The space had be a stand out as they worked from home and used their home for business meetings.
We really had to focus on the storage solutions under bench! The Blum drawer systems are fantastic for this.... We made great use of all space under bench and ended up creating a wonderful piece of joinery, we were very fortunate to have clients that were open to all of our ideas. This kitchen was also awarded by the HIA in the same year, Minosa was also adjudged the NSW Kitchen Designers of the Year & we also one Kitchen Project of the Year.
Both of these kitchens are full of colour, these colours represent our clients and their personalities and are a great example of Modern kitchen design and with the use of colour you can create spaces that are engaging, exciting and will last the test of time.
