I think full overlay is OK for an old home unless you are trying to match original cabinets. They tend to be less expensive than the inset. I would have preferred the cabinets in a light buttercream rather than glazed, but the end effect is similar. This makes the most out of an awkward space without an expensive addition, and the designer deserves kudos for that.

I wish they posted a picture of the dining room that showed the doorway and the stained glass window though. Is there a built-in hutch underneath perhaps?

Arts and Crafts and Victorian are kissing cousins In many ways, especially for vernacular homes, and mixing styles would have been very common in 1905.

So great to see this Reno that isn't the cookie-cutter white and fitted...this has the unfitted look of old - very refreshing! True to the chosen and natural eras and beautifully done.
I love the baking area! We live in a small space and I bake a lot - all our own bread - so I use a bamboo cart on wheels as my baking station...and wheel it over to my narrow marble island as needed. It works, but this kitchen would be better:) great job!!!

A very pretty and practical room. If not totally authentic it is certainly totally charming; I really like it.
