Cozy Kitchen

The kitchen is often said to be the heart of the house, a place of warmth and comfort where people can’t help but linger. Our redesign of the kitchen in this Newburyport, MA Greek Revival home was designed to elicit exactly that feeling. Taking its cue from the original fireplace, a brick accent at the modern range to ties the old to the new. Salvaged wood countertops and a tin backsplash add color and texture that complements the antique, honey-colored flooring. This is a room where form and function meet to create a beautiful space and many happy memories.

It's actually the old sub-floor from the home that was re-purposed and finished with a honey-colored stain.

You could call Walker Creek in Essex for a lovely custom new or antique countertop.

always a big fan of the rustic farm look. brick back splash and gun metal colors go great together. lamps over the island suck. but i like the window pane cabinets
