“I can’t express how happy I am with my kitchen and bathroom. Studio Minosa worked miracles on the small area and created a beautiful space that is both functional and fashionable. Studio Minosa combined my vision of French bistro with high tech. Just let them do their job, Simona, Darren & their team are real professionals.” - Aileen

Located in Croydon, NSW, this snug inner-city suburb home is nestled among a row of heritage-listed Victorian terraces. Meticulously renovated, the petite kitchen, laundry, and powder room seamlessly blend French Bistro charm and art deco flair.

Paying homage to its heritage while embracing a playful fusion of styles, the space exudes warmth, functionality, and timeless elegance. Inspired by the client's love for the French bistro style, this reimagined design captures its allure within the comforts of home.

“Bespoke details, such as the brass overhead shelving, timber concave panelled doors, and the wine storage hit the brief of Parisian bistro.”

“The focus was to reconfigure the space. Switch the location of the kitchen and bathroom/laundry, and hope that whilst stripping the many layers back, not too many surprises revealed themselves.”

“Every visit is an entrancing interlude, where even the shortest pauses feel like stepping into a joyful tableau of artistic expression.”
