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.

Where to find tile? - I'm having a hard time locAting black and white tile. 12"square. I've found a porcelain matte but havent seen it person. Using in a laundry mud room area so dont won't blow a budget on floor just getting started. Where did you find your tile?

This is a porcelain tile, you should be able to find this in a good tile store. Good luck.

What kind of flooring is this? - And are the squares true black and white? I am looking at Alterna luxury vinyl, which comes in 16 inch squares of black and white, so I'm looking for comparison kitchen floors. Thanks!

Great island! - Hi - I noticed your photos in an idea-book about French-styled kitchens (2/13/13). I really like the round island, and we were thinking of creating a similar one, so I just wondered what the dimensions are of this one, and what issues, if any, you ran into, given the tricky cabinetry requirements? Many thanks!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

5. Advertising posters. Colorful wall hangings that advertise champagne, travel regions and Gallic goods help to give a bistro its character. Group a series of them together or make a splash with just one oversize poster as a focal point.
