What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

THE MALENY FARM

A Hobby Farm set in the picturesque mountains of Maleny required a kitchen, dining & outdoor kitchen renovation. Due to family demands and multi-generational living, the original kitchen & breakfast room was converted into two kitchens. A reconfiguration of the space allowed an interconnecting pantry for both kitchens & transformed the old pantry into a mudroom. The clients desire to use materials that would age overtime was brought to life with brass and creates a space that is vibrant and reflective of the client’s love of pattern & unique materials.

Maleny is such an incredible location; do you enjoy working out of the city?

It’s absolutely stunning! The drive and location overlooking the hinterland and back towards the ocean is hard to beat. I love having jobs where I can be inspired from the outside in.

Can you tell us a bit about your first impressions of this home? Starting from as you drive through the gate to the old kitchen?

It’s a gorgeous hobby farm with animals, meticulously tended gardens & a pavilion style home perched up on the hill drinking in the Sunshine Coast. As it’s a holiday home, it was viewed differently in terms of design. I had worked with my clients previously and had an understanding of how they lived and what they liked. I knew, even though functionality is key, we could have a bit more fun with the selections.

“I knew, even though functionality is key, we could have a bit more fun with the selections.”

Where did you draw inspiration from? Are you able to describe your design process.

Number 1 is visiting the site and understanding the client’s requirements. This particular project was a holiday home for a large family with grandchildren. They wanted a main kitchen to allow for entertainment and a smaller prep kitchen that could be used separately for smaller meals. We also looked at the connection of the existing BBQ area to the Kitchen & what function this space would hold.

Number 2 is to space plan. The existing kitchen was a galley kitchen, with a separate walk-in pantry and a secondary dining room attached. I knew this room would need reconfiguration to meet the brief, so we decided to turn the second dining room into the main kitchen and install an interconnecting pantry to divide the space and allow for the prep kitchen behind.

As a result of the interconnecting pantry a Mud Room was created in the old walk-in pantry. This allowed extra storage for the dirty boots when entering the house, additional freezer space, as well as a seating and hanging area for hats and coats.

Lastly, we removed the stairs to the existing BBQ area & built in the deck so the outdoor kitchen was flush with the interior. The use of hardwood timber cabinetry & vibrant patterned tiles offset the dominant pizza oven.

One of the standout features is definitely the brass, which is featured throughout the home. How does this tie into the story you were creating?

Brass has definitely had a resurgence in the last couple of years. My client loved the finish as it has a luxe feel whilst still being organic in the way it patinas over time. It is certainly not a traditional farmhouse kitchen however more importantly its true to my client’s design aesthetic and her family needs.

Brass is quite a bright metal to work with, and yet the finished result feels very soft, and liveable. How did you achieve this?

My design philosophy was fully engaged in this project. I started from the floor up and started layering the room. As brass can be quite dominating, I needed to pair it with equally strong materials to counter it. The patterned tiles were perfect, and although they are neutral in colour, the pattern was the ideal ‘visual strength’ to balance the room. This is the same methodology I used with the splashback and the fluted glass cabinet. Understanding whether the combination is too much or little is an intuition thing, yet it always starts with my design principles. The use of lots of different patterns and textures, with cohesion, creates a balance between luxe and liveable.

Is there an element in this project that has been a popular request by other clients?

Each of my clients has very different aesthetics and visions. Furthermore, the principles I follow for a main residence and a holiday home are different. A holiday home can usually be more experimental with materials and patterns as you are not living with them day in day out. In saying this, there are definitely elements of this project, like the layout and use of spaces, that I have been consistently asked about. Visually the use of brass in this particular project works beautifully because it will age and weather just as the farm and landscape will overtime – I think there is a lovely story to that.

What are some of your favourite ‘moments’ in the home?

I love the material palette. The combination of the brass, tiles, wallpaper, fluted glass, and leather in the mudroom, adds irresistible drama and interest to the eye. Individually, they are strong materials, but together they balance each other in true harmony. It was inspiring pulling them together and wonderful seeing it come to life.
