Luke Mortimer's little home just outside Castlemaine in Victoria, Australia, is a lovely country cottage, and his penchant for vintage, eclectic pieces means the home feels simultaneously modern and a bit rustic, which can be seen in the design of the kitchen.

As Luke tells Amy Azzarito for Design*Sponge,

Although it's a compact kitchen, I love it, and it works. I love the social aspect of this kitchen, and the island is a prep/dining table. The lights that hang over the island are from a tennis court in Brisbane at Kangaroo Point... The green cabinet is one of my favourite pieces in the house. I found it at a second-hand dealer in Castlemaine. The Kenwood Mix-Master was a birthday present from my parents, and it came with all the original components... As there are no drawers in this ultra-compact country kitchen, all the kitchen utensils and silverware live in old Agee preserving jars next to the cooker. It turns out that it's actually relatively convenient and looks pretty cool, too.
