Inspiring Outdoor Oasis

When Justine Van Kekem and husband Dion were creating their own outdoor oasis, they chose the Gasmate Galaxy 6 Burner BBQ. Justine, an interior designer, stylist and avid DIYer, with the help of builder husband Dion has created a stunning home in rural Christchurch for their family.

The Concept

With my husband being a builder and myself an interior designer we set out to design and build our first home. We wanted it to be unique but also cost-effective. By using simple materials and initiative design, we feel we achieved this. We are very happy with the end result.

Justine wouldn't describe her house as any one style. It is multiple; a mix of boho, modern, contemporary, Scandi, and a little bit industrial. Her main inspiration came from Pinterest, home magazines, and from walking through a lot of show homes taking notes.

Why Justine Chose The Galaxy

"We are a family of 5, and live on a small lifestyle block with chickens, cows, sheep, and the family dog. We love outdoor living and entertaining, hence why we chose the biggest BBQ we could find but that also looked the part in our beautiful outdoor entertaining area. We loved that we could make it look integrated and that we could add on extras eg fridge and it all fitted together to look like a built-in."

Get The Look

The Galaxy Outdoor Kitchen is designed to be versatile and elegant. Start with the Barbecue size and add on modules until you create the outdoor kitchen you want.
