I had the privilege of Ross Pinkerton’s invaluable advice when we needed to renovate our kitchen and, while my husband favoured the practicality of a bright and shiny new modern minimalist kitchen, I was pining for a warm, inviting, more traditional cosy space in what was the epicentre (my husband’s word for it) or heart of our home as I would put it. Ross managed to find a solution which not only made me appreciate the practicality of efficient space planning that my husband was after, but in turn made my husband see the importance of making this practical space a beautiful interior space in its own right.
And when I got carried away with the space efficiency side of things (i.e. trying to put a custom-built kitchen cupboard in every free inch of space), it was Ross who reminded me of what my initial vision was for the kitchen - as ‘the heart of the home’ and gave me the idea to put free-standing kitchen dressers to give that farmhouse gather round the kitchen table feel to the space – it meant using cabinets that I already had and just repainting them to matching the new fitted units - saving us a few pennies there and allowing us to splurge elsewhere – namely the gargantuan fridge and freezer my husband had been dreaming of. With Ross at the helm of the kitchen renovation, miraculously, BOTH my husband and I got our dream kitchen.
On time, and installed perfectly without a hitch and all while enjoying our summer holiday abroad. It's where we cook, eat, work and dream up ideas for the rest of the house. Thank you Ross!
