Restoring Classic Beauty traditional-kitchen
 

Restoring Classic Beauty

This Home built circa 1736 had great bones but needed some modern functionality added by way of a new layout & upgraded amenities. The family of five that occupy this home, loved it’s charming qualities and didn’t want to lose that by over renovating.
Originally segregated into multiple rooms this kitchen lacked function and lighting. Opening up the layout and restoring the exposed beams both structurally and aesthetically helped to maintain the home’ s original structure & period charm. Reorienting the kitchen helped to maximize the amount of natural light that now floods the space.

The rug was purchased at Pottery Barn 4 years ago, the client doesn't think it's available through them anymore however, hope this is helpful!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Amy Renea added this to Design School: Embrace Repetition
In this simple dining space, identical rugs in varying size are used to separate space while making a unified statement. Leaving a rug free of any furnishings allows it to work as a piece of art; the repetition of two rugs gives their design even more presence.

kitchen - would do for beam along the window to light that counter top then use tolomeo parete wall brackets along masonry wall? maybe pendant for an island later, finally some in cupboard stick on leds? or plinth lights
