The Dreams of a Farm Kitchen Realized

Farmhouse Restoration Achieved with a Custom Kitchen Renovation

The Challenge:

Originally from eastern Canada this couple struggled with bringing their antiques, history and love of the farm into their urban home. There were existing features that had to be incorporated in to the new design. Oak – it was throughout the home and all the trim, doors and furniture. Sentimental backsplash tiles with a cherry motif were top of the salvage list and the recently purchased white appliances. Upon first entry into the existing kitchen the passion for cherry red was obvious. The challenge was how to incorporate a traditional farm style with white appliances, oak trim and cherry tiles?

The Design Solution:

You are transported back to the farm as you enter into this newly renovated kitchen. The details are sprinkled throughout. The farm influence is seen in the apron sink, the bead board wainscoting, rear cupboard accent panels and the oil rubbed bronze kitchen faucet. A dining room chandelier pays homage to the school house days and the salvaged cherry tile appears in three distinctive locations; the hood fan, desk area and wainscoting cap.

The cupboards have been color matched to the white appliances to blend seamlessly and the boarded white ceiling is complete with an oak cornice. A The pallette is fresh with a bold splash of cherry red. Red quartz countertops are the talk of the neighborhood. The decision to select this daring, bold color was not without many sleepless nights however the result is stunning. The prefect cherry on top of the realization of a dream farm kitchen.

“Thank you for all your contributions from design to project management to finishing our new kitchen for us. It is unique and suits us so well. After all the agonizing over the red counter tops, it really does look fantastic!”

Creating More Kitchen Space with Interior Design and Interior Styling

The Challenge:

A relocation to an inner city neighborhood meant the sacrifice of the modern kitchen amenities, appliances and space. After living in a more spacious suburban home this couple was struggling to make their new inner city home reflect their lifestyle. This professional couple has a common passion for cooking. The current kitchen was dated from the 1970’s with honey oak cabinets and linoleum floors. Inefficient workings of the kitchen did not allow for storage or counter space. Existing cabinets were not prepared to accommodate the latest generation of appliances and the myriad of gadgets, spices and dishes to elegantly prepare their famous international cuisine. This is a new era of cooking and this kitchen needed to be brought into the 21st century.

Interior Furniture and Furnishings

The Design Solution:

A layout alteration began with the addition of patio doors to open out onto the beautiful backyard and to bring as much natural light into this small cave kitchen. An existing single entry door would later be repurposed for a unique pantry solution, with custom shelving, to accommodate it’s every need. The existing peninsula was removed and converted into a lower micro shelf and the cabinets were repositioned, still utilizing the existing frameworks to allow for the latest kitchen appliances including cooktop, double ovens and fridge.
Cabinets were capped with a paint grade bulkhead to run to the ceiling and the honey oak doors and frames received a dark walnut stain facelift. Additional lighting enhanced the dark corners and reconfiguration meant open shelving and display areas and the quantity of countertop space doubled! Additional lengths and a mobile prep island contributed to this success. A smaller table at the east end of the kitchen conceals a double sided bookshelf housing a stellar exotic cookbook collection.

 “I was very satisfied with the design process and team. Organization is excellent, good communication since it’s important to stay informed.”
