English Old World

1800's English-Style Kitchen

"Casual elegance sets the mood for this 1800s English-style kitchen. Muted colors, matte finishes and natural stone are elements of the style. Still, when most people think Old World, they think furniture-looking cabinets. This kitchen follows suit. The two evergreen cupboards on either side of the breakfast room have pewter wire inserts and decorative feet for a stand-alone effect."

"The knotty cypress island, housing an apron sink and fully-integrated dishwasher, has turned legs on the back to emphasize the unfitted look. The Vintage Chablis perimeter cabinets have a warm and used feel, accented by pewter pulls, a contrast to the iron pulls of the island. The combination of different finishes and woods strengthen the Old World feel and are pulled together in the pantry, whose doors are the same cypress wood of the island with a painted green interior. The tumbled stone backsplashes, squared-off edges of the limestone countertop, and plaster walls play off the Old World theme."
