Red AGA traditional-kitchen


The Commandants House in Charlestown Navy Yard. I was asked to design the kitchen for this historic house in Boston. My inspiration was a family style kitchen that was youthful and had a nod to it's historic past. The combination of wormy cherry wood custom cabinets, and painted white inset cabinets works well with the existing black and white floor. The island was a one of kind that I designed to be functional with a wooden butcher block and compost spot for prep, the other half a durable honed black granite. This island really works in this busy city kitchen.

What kind of fridge is hidden behind the lovely doors? - I would love to see more pictures of the fridge, it is gorgeous. Thanks in advance.

Thank you! I've spent the morning looking at integrated fridge treatments on Houzz and this paneled fridge is one of the most beautiful.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Adding hooks or cubbies in the kitchen for lunch boxes and other school essentials is a great way to save time in the morning. This piece of furniture almost looks like it was retrofitted to work for the family living here.
Alison Hodgson added this to Your Back-to-School Game Plan
With younger children it’s really important to have hooks at a level where they can reach things themselves. Here is a great spot tucked in the corner of a kitchen with hooks for coats, lunches and backpacks and baskets to the left for anything else. It’s probably not right by the door, but it seems like a worthwhile compromise.

I love the feel of this room--lots to look at but doesn't feel cluttered. Old and weathered but warm and bright. Love the beautiful woodwork, high ceilings, paint color on the walls and the b & w tiled floor. Glass cabinet. White and cream working well together in the same space. How *is* it so bright? really really wish I could be in this kitchen. love it.

We could have a hutch/backpack space in the kitchen next to the table. When we don't need it for backpacks, we can use more decorative things to pretty it up. May not work because it is a very visible spot in the kitchen.
