A Classic Kitchen
I found this kitchen while browsing BHG a while back and just keep going back to it as an inspiration piece because it's so classic, clean, and pretty. Here are my favorite parts of it:
White marble backsplash - classic subway tiles that will never ever go out of style.
Old cabinets made new again - painted a fresh white and dressed with contemporary hardware, these refurbished cabinets probably allowed for splurges else-where.
Dark gray counters - I can't tell if they're quartz, concrete, or another composite material, but the color is perfect and the solid-surface means low-maintenance and durability.
Old farmhouse sink - I'm not certain if it's the large basin or the nostalgia behind it, but I adore these sinks.
Wall-mounted faucet - the perfect fit for the sink, they look shiny and new but still original to the sink. Mounted to the wall, the faucet stands out as a focal point of the room.
Re-purposed radiator screens - placed in the cabinets below the sink, the silver geometric screen material serves as the perfect accent to the kitchen.
Roman Shades - a bright accent fabric livens up the space and allows for a few punchy accent colors, but the streamlined shape keeps things classically refined.
Simple ceiling-mount light fixture - vintage, demure, and sweet, it doesn't scream for attention but adds to the clean crispness of the room.
Do you love this kitchen as much as I do? What is your favorite part? Do share!
