Nothing like an inbox full of eye candy to start the week off right. Australian interior design firm Wrightson Stewart (formerly Phorm Interiors) sent us an announcement that their Brisbane-based consultancy is rebranding. Sporting a new name, their online portfolio is worth a look for kitchen renovation inspiration.
Steven Stewart and Ian Wrightson are Directors of the firm, which specializes in residential and commercial design — from apartments to cafes. Their kitchens tend to be clean-lined and minimal, but a burst of color or pattern makes its way into almost every space, whether it's a banquette upholstered in bright geometric fabric, large-scale artwork in the kitchen, or a countertop covered in hexagonal tiles.
A few of our favorite unexpected ideas include the mismatched lights hung above the counter of Brisbane's Cinco Bistro, the stocked open shelving that creates a focal point at Cucina in the Gold Coast, and the abstract color field artwork that helps to define the breakfast nook in a Kangaroo Point kitchen.
