The shortlist has been announced for this year's Australian Interior Design Awards. We headed for the Residential Decoration category in search of kitchen inspiration. Looks like our Pinterest board just got a boost...

Believe it or not, this contemporary kitchen by Arent&Pyke is part of their rework of a grand 1880s terrace. The brief was to use colour to create an uplifting home, anchored in the past but inherently modern. The graphic apple artwork over the sink would definitely make doing the washing up a slightly more uplifting experience.

Melbourne-based practice Atticus & Milo stayed with the 1970's vibe when designing for a 1973 home, sticking with earthy colours and eye catching natural accents.

A feeling of luxury was specified for a display penthouse in South Yarra. Miriam Fanning's Mim Design nailed it with a glossy benchtop, rich timber cabinetry and a copper light for a warm (and on-trend) glow.

This serene and spacious kitchen is the work of Hare + Klein, part of a North Bondi home where materials, finishes and details flow seamlessly from inside to out.

In their second shortlisted design, Sydney firm Arent&Pyke aimed to develop a 'cohesive, joyful, balanced yet effortless home'. The stunning marble splashback adds natural beauty to a fuss-free space, with metallic pendant lights emphasising the high ceiling.

A soft palette of lime washed floors, pale timber and a voluptuous pale grey Togo seat contributes to a tranquil harbourside kitchen by Sydney-based SJB Interiors.

This contemporary Melbourne apartment kitchen by Mim Design is a study in grey and white, with marble again providing a textural focus.
