A traditional Kitchen with a contemporary twist

This kitchen has a traditional feel with its white cabinets and butcher block island, but elements like the honed cement counter tops and stainless steel appliances add a contemporary twist.

Is the Lacanche hiding behind the island in French or Portuguese Blue? - I am considering a blue Lacanche with soapstone counters. Thank you!

THE FRENCH BARN - Lacanche Canada
Hello ihdecosta,
It is hard to say since only a small portion of the range is showing, and lighting can make a big difference in a photograph, but this looks like our Portuguese Blue.

Our French Blue is a "deeper" blue. If you haven't yet, please contact our friends at Art Culinaire (sales@frenchranges.com) as they are the Lacanche distributor for the US.

The tile is from Architectural Ceramics, the yellow field tile is 4.75"x4.75" Jaune Field tile. The mural above the cook top is bordered by 1"x10.5" Madeira Green Antico D and the center is 5"X5" Traditional Lisbon Pattern.

All the windows affected the amount of upper cabinets in this kitchen, but ultimately they were essential in creating a bright and inviting space. We made up for storage by lining the one interior wall with tall pantry cabinets.
