Welcome to Contrast’s Blog, I’m Monica Dunn and I am the other half of the team that heads up Contrast Interiors.

I am an Interior Designer by trade, Mum to three boisterous boys and a lover of beautiful spaces.

At Contrast we are all about beautiful spaces and the products that make them just that. I am mind blown by the endless design options, new products and finishings that are released every month.

I’ll help you consider the options, conclude what solution best fits your lifestyle and provide inspiration in your quest for the perfect kitchen.

Add a little life to your Kitchen

I love interior design. Nothing fills me up more than putting a space together; adding subtracting, moving and changing until it’s perfect.

My top 5 trends from 2017

The silly season is upon us and as we bolt towards the New Year it is nice to look back on what has featured in 2017 and what will most likely continue in 2018.

Benchtops – what are the options?

The kitchen benchtop is like the ‘icing on the cake’, ‘the cherry on the top’, the ‘finishing touch’. So what are the options and what are the pros and cons.

  • Brendon built and installed our new kitchen, which we love. He consulted with us on the details before installation and found great outcomes for the handles, sink, and drainer grooves, He did an amazing job of incorporating some of our recycled rimu into our kitchen too. He ensured the kitchen was completed to our needs, and a very high standard. He has also provided some fantastic wardrobe designs and installed these, and listens to the customer needs and follows through with a great job.

  • I dealt with Brendon and his team from Contrast Interiors for a fairly extensive build after he was recommended to me through Trade connections. His contact was professional, prices fair, and the the result was outstanding. He built our kitchen as well and laundry, 2 bathrooms, and then had some other parts thrown in as well since the result was great.
  • A huge thank you to the team at Contrast Interiors for our beautiful kitchen. We are so delighted with the final result. It not only looks amazing but is highly functional and has been manufactured to a very high standard. Brendon, Monica and the team were fabulous to deal with. We would not hesitate to recommend Contrast Interiors
