The Traditional design category proved very popular in this year’s KBDi Designer Awards, with a record number of entries coming in.

Entrants in this category are invited to submit any residential space that has been designed and decorated to reflect a particular architectural style. The winning entry was a stand-out example of architecturally-considerate design, and we’re sharing it with you here.

Nathan’s quirky clients were vintage collectors and artistic types, and they wanted a 50s-inspired kitchen to reflect their eclectic tastes. Their budget presented some challenges, but the designer delivered a stand-out space with cleverly curated details. Curved ribbing, gorgeously profiled door and drawer fronts and super-cute knobs are a generous nod to the fifties style, while blackwood detailing links the kitchen to the clients’ vintage pieces.

On behalf of our 2020 Traditional category award sponsors, Farmers Doors, we extend a huge congratulations to Nathan, and commend each and every one of the finalists, too.

Huge thanks to Farmers Doors for their much-valued support of the KBDi Designer Awards program.
