Distinct finishes and details are necessary to send new cabinetry back in time. Here, the cabinets needed to compliment the rugged wood and sturdy stone architecture that transformed this new-construction kitchen into a vintage country French retreat. The classic country French color - blue - was the starting point, distressed and washed down to a faded tint that suggests the passage of time. Heavy scrolled hardware and prominent old-world hinges add authenticity. A modest and rugged farmhouse-style table sits in lieu of a modern cabinetry-constructed island.
The kitchen is truly the heart of the home — we know, it’s a cliche, but only because it’s true. Think of the last big party you threw—you had the entire home spotless; you arranged comfy seating in every nook of the living room; you had tables set for buffet and hor d’oeuvres — but where did everybody end up gathering? The kitchen, of course! Whether it’s hosting high-class guests or doing homework, it seems the kitchen always ends up acting as the homes central station.
The pure geometry of horizontal and vertical planes uncluttered by paneling, ornament, highlights, or shadows defines contemporary style. Slab doors with hidden Euro-style hinges give the base cabinets a clean-line appearance; linear metal pulls are discreet necessary additions. The rich color and prominent wood grain of the walnut cabinets compliments the sleek profile while generating warmth sought in every home. Upper cabinets outfitted with tinted glass open up instead of out in uniquely modern function.
