What Houzz contributors are saying:
The front door opens directly into the kitchen. To make the space feel larger and brighter, Kole removed the original 9-foot ceiling to take advantage of the pitched roofline. New decorative walnut beams with a gray wash stain add character and dimension to the ceiling.The new walnut cabinets also have a grey wash stain to match the ceiling beams and give them “an old-timey feel,” Kole says. The same walnut was used for the furniture-style island and custom range hood. Ivory and cream mottled quartz countertops and a white subway tiled backsplash provide a stark contrast to the dark walnut. Kole bought the brass pendant lights over the island because they reminded her of lights from an old train depot. The vintage wood bread boards hanging on the wall are from France and Hungary.The floors throughout the house are a wood-look luxury vinyl tile. The white walls on the upper level are painted in Pure White by Sherwin-Williams.
