Italian Villa

Italian Villa-Style Kitchen
Photo: Koechel Peterson

"Our client was from Italy and wanted to recreate the ambience of the traditional kitchen she grew up in while taking advantage of the latest conveniences. We used aged pine for the cabinetry and refrigerator panels, terra cotta-colored tiles on the countertops, backsplash, and floor, and brickwork.

 

"We searched for and found antique architectural elements such as the ironwork under the countertop and covered the modern refrigerator to recreate the casual feel of an Italian villa. For the same reasons, we didn't want the sink to be modern. The apron sink has the personality of an older style that works well with the overall design."
