The dusty blue cabinetry finish is a custom mix that Chris Ingram of Ironwood Cabinet Design calls "worn blue jean." The antiqued finish helps tone down the cherry cabinetry for a timeless look that fits the 18th-century home.
Backsplash: white subway tile; countertop: Carrara marble; island top: cherry
The stunning brick stove surround is a remnant from the home's original kitchen, and was used as a focal point. A 48-inch Wolf range fit perfectly in the space, and Ingram had a custom hood made. Upper cabinetry was left off on both sides of the stove surround in favor of larger windows and wall sconces, which help make the heavy-looking fireplace seem more delicate and beautiful.
Modern organizational tools fill every nook and cranny. Pullout baskets and a cabinet for hanging utensils are just a few of Ingram's favorite features. Because they were working with such a large space, Ingram focused on making each area function as a separate station and didn't worry too much about the traditional work triangle.
The home's original yellow pine wide plank flooring was refinished for this project. The window bench holds a subwoofer for a built-in sound system.
