Victorian Workers Cottage Addition

Photography: Karina Illovska

The kitchen is divided into different colours to reduce its bulk and a surprise pink study inside it has its own little window. The front rooms were renovated to their former glory with replica plaster reinstated. A tasmanian Oak floor with a beautiful matt water based finish was selected by jess and its light and airy. this unifies the old and new parts. Colour was used playfully. Jess came up with a diverse colour scheme that somehow works really well. The wallpaper in the hall is warm and luxurious.

Do you recall what was used as a sealer before the Bona Traffic? Specifically, did it have any tint or was it clear/natural? Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: A Victorian Cottage in Sydney Opens Up
AFTER: The north-facing bay window (important in the Southern Hemisphere) fills the space with sunlight. Broe even installed a small window at counter level to capture extra light and illuminate the workspace. The Tasmanian oak flooring added throughout the house has a matte finish for a light and airy feel. The ceiling of the window bay is much lower than the ceiling in the rest of the space, making the window seat feel cozier and more intimate. Translucent blinds and a fence outside the back door provide privacy if needed. Kitchen counter: Snow, Caesarstone; hardware: Hettich; sink: Olivieri; faucets: Sussex, Reece; blinds: Rolletna
Jennifer Ott Design added this to Kitchen Color: 7 Sensational Yellow Backsplashes
Don’t want to deal with grout maintenance? Try this cool and contemporary alternative to backsplash tile: back-painted glass. This is a terrific option for those who have a specific color in mind for their backsplash and are having trouble finding it in tile form, as you can paint the glass in any color you can dream up. The bold goldenrod backsplash here adds such liveliness to this kitchen, and it plays really well with the white wall cabinets and the greenish-gray base cabinets — what an excellent combination of materials and colors.Backsplash: Glass back-painted in Golden Sand from Dulux. For a similar paint color available in the United States, check out Yellow Coneflower from PPG Pittsburgh Paints.

This one is too "deep" from front to back. Again, need to build it a comfortable depth so that "real people" can sit on it. Need to measure carefully for the depth (front to back), and the height (floor to seat) to make sure it's a good fit.
