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.

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

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.
Your style is … Parisian bistro: Intimate is what you’re looking for, and this style has it. Tile floors, window awnings, zinc countertops and vintage advertisement posters will transport you to your favorite French café. See more on Parisian-bistro-style kitchens
