Green is Her Color
The original kitchen in this 'modern' farm house had little, if any, merit. It was cramped, dark, lacked storage and usable counter space, had failing appliances and little aesthetic appeal. The clients were seeking a light filled kitchen with the requisite appliances, storage, and prep space to meet their frequent large scale entertaining needs. Additionally, they were looking to personalize the kitchen to reflect their own design aesthetic. Rustic alder base cabinets, with a smoky grey stain, were paired with pale gray painted wall cabinets and marble look-a-like quartz countertops providing the perfect back drop for the vibrant green wall color and collection of previously acquired home decor pieces.
Adding larger windows, pendant lights, a track light and a few additional can lights created the light level, both day and night, the homeowners were craving. The 36" gas-on-gas pro-style range and exhaust hood kick-start diner parties while the newly configured island provides ample storage, prep and gathering space for guests without impeding the cook's progress. The stainless steel apron front sink, bridge faucet with pull-down head and pantry barn door lend a modern twist to traditional farm house fixtures. Cork flooring throughout reduces the cook's fatigue when prepping for parties as well as family dinners.
