The eat-in kitchen is not a space we normally see highlighted here on the Room of the Week. While they tend to be absolutely charming, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one as polished as this!
So, of course the old-world herringbone floors, high ceilings and beautiful molding, punctuated by fresh white cabinets, brass hardware and marble countertops are obviously helping things here quite a bit, it’s the combination of modern meets farmhouse that’s really doing it for me. This is definitely what I’m going for with my own kitchen…
Love the trio of pendants – playful but sculptural at the same time. Also – that big white fridge. I LOVE. I’ve also been quite obsessed with that style of rug – it’s a cotton kilim rag rug, and I’m considering one for our home somewhere too – I love that it’s color without a commitment to bold color – you feel me?
While the storage they have is plenty on its own, I love that they opted for the built-in sideboard as way to open things up above the cabinets and make room for those simple floating shelves (complete with lights!)
The brass in the space is just enough. It doesn’t’ feel overwhelming to me, perhaps because of the delicate nature of it all. And how about that antique fireplace in the corner there? Love the character it brings to the space! The furnishings being simple helps that focal point to really sing.
I also love that rather than filling that wall with a hung gallery, they opted for the leaning of art down the whole piece. It allows the space as a whole to feel much lighter! And imagine how much easier it is to swap out art pieces too. I’d happily move right in. Which technically I could because I discovered this place on a real-estate site. Go figure! Hmmm, Stockholm anyone?
