About the Project
A charming farmhouse received some TLC while still retaining its original appeal, with the kitchen overlooking a new sunken family room offering expansive bucolic views.
Low ceilings and two support beams presented a major challenge. The beams got a coffered treatment, and crown molding continues around the entire space to lead the eye upward.
The design revolved around a striking 71” La Cornue range in a soft steel blue. “Dove White” cabinetry was chosen for the perimeter, with Benjamin Moore “Iron” for the island and wet bar. Paneled refrigerator and freezer columns are paired with a microwave drawer on one side of the kitchen and a small desk near the family room. Ever-popular marble countertops and a waterfall island supply up-to-date style. A herringbone layout highlights the marble subway tiles. A surprise injection of industrial form is the black “broach”-style handle on the pot-filler faucet. Brass pulls and trim on the seeded glass pendants add an elegant touch. The opposite side of the room features a wet bar with beverage refrigerator. Retro tube and glass shelving in black and brass sit against the antique mirror backsplash. Here the brass pulls have a prismatic surface for extra sparkle.
