Inside Australian Food Icon, Maggie Beer’s new kitchen.
For Australia’s most celebrated cook, Maggie Beer, bringing people together around the dinner table is a passion; so, before moving into her new Adelaide City apartment, the first item on the to-do list was renovating the kitchen.
Following advice from a close friend, Maggie sought help from respected kitchen designers Farquhar, where she fell in love at first sight with Caesarstone’s Rugged Concrete™.
“When I first walked into Farquhar and saw the stone display, this stone [Rugged Concrete] was on it, and I never deterred from it. I just loved it. I love the graduation of colour, it’s not all matte, it’s real. It feels like concrete.”
With a beautiful, traditional cottage in the Barossa already, Maggie wanted a different feel for her city apartment. With breathtaking views across the city, the desire for space, light and functionality were utmost for her home away from home.
Working closely with Farquhar Kitchen’s designer, Beth, Maggie was able to work through her kitchen design ideas, reimagine the space and bring her kitchen aspirations to life.
“I wanted sleek lines. I wanted brightness. I wanted to walk in and feel sunny and alive.” reveals Maggie. “I loved the design experience. There were ideas that I hadn’t thought of.”
Opting for sleek Alpine White Cabinetry by Farquhar, the super matte surface and velvety finish provides the perfect backdrop to the dramatic gradients of the grey textural and white haze patinas of the rough, yet refined Caesarstone® Rugged Concrete™.
With its authentic look of hand-poured concrete, the benchtops blend superbly with the white colour palette softening its raw industrial aesthetic.
“The design of the kitchen really works. Friends can be around having a drink while I’m still doing bits and pieces”.
The end result is a modern, streamlined kitchen that ticks all the boxes for Maggie. It’s a warm, inviting space that feels like home. Ideal for entertaining family and friends.
