I’ve always had this competitive streak. In high school, I channelled it into smashing grades in every subject, including an additional maths unit that I wasn’t required to take for any reason beyond my own self-imposed need to prove a point. I was the dux of the school, as well as the senior netball team captain, head prefect and leader of the jazz woodwind ensemble. Now that that’s all a good two decades in the past, I’m starting to yearn for more opportunities to demonstrate my superiority.
Of course, there’s the career thing, but that gets old pretty quickly when you’re already CFO of a multinational technology company and significant benefactor to several non-profits. What’s left? Well, I think I’ve figured it out: kitchens. Kitchen renovations, to be precise, are the answer I’ve been searching for. Watch out, kids – I’m about to knock this project out of the park, and nobody is going to stand in my way.
I’m serious. If anyone around here thinks they can compete with me on this front, they’ve got another thing coming. It’s like, hello… I’m not exactly going to hold back on kitchen renovations. Melbourne is the style capital of the country and so cost is no barrier for me. My taste in interiors has been roundly applauded. Perhaps most importantly, I’ve got the drive to unlock the very best kitchen design Melbourne has ever seen.
I’m not sure just yet what this will entail. For starters, though, it’s not about being flashy just for the sake of it. That’s not my style at all, and that’s why I’m bound to succeed in this endeavour. I genuinely value smart storage solutions and highly functional fittings, along with beautiful layouts, quality materials and timeless finishes. I’m not interested in flash-in-the-pan kitchen trends – no rose gold or marble or loud paint jobs for me. I enjoy a trend as much as the next person, but in this arena, I believe you’ve got to be in it for the long haul to win it.
So… who wants to take me on?
