The owners of this 1920’s Colonial Revival cottage wanted to transform their cramped kitchen into an inviting place for the family to gather, while maintaining the home’s historic character and charm.

We removed the wall that separated the kitchen and dining, and added beams to the ceiling to unify the space. For the walnut cabinets, we drew inspiration from the beautiful original staircase and dark woodwork that grace the adjacent living room. A large green island and stunning quartzite counters keep the palette fresh. Vintage filing cabinet pulls on the island and the pantry’s weathered door handle, sourced from a pub in England, add patina and personality.
