Oh, how I love this kitchen! I think this is my favorite design style--a little modern industrial, a little rustic, a little traditional. What comes out when I decorate my own home is a little more cozy and colorful, but I still love how this all looks on paper. Or computer monitors, whatever.
I picture this kitchen in an older home or loft apartment that has big, open spaces and lots of light. I decided on wood floors and a focal brick wall with a chalkboard wall as a backdrop to part of the space. I added a warm gray rug, open shelving, stainless appliances and apron front sink with a stainless faucet. The other metal finishes in the room are oil rubbed bronze. I chose a rustic pine table and benches as well as an island. Both of these get a dash of modern style; the island with its marble top and the table with the silver Tolix chairs at each end.
The cabinets I included are from Lowe's, but one could paint existing cabinetry white for the same look. The industrial shelf is to take the place of a pantry and would look great with metal bins. I also used a potrack for more dimension and to keep base cabinetry to a minimum. Upper cabinets are completely optional.
So there's Day 3! I hope you're enjoying the series! Come back tomorrow for something completely different!
