This eat-in kitchen has some real retro charm: its floor is painted in green diamonds and a 1970s china cabinet displays green and white dishware. Meanwhile, the beadboard wall and heavy, painted dining table are quintessential cottage fixtures.
To open up this formerly small kitchen, a wall was removed and replaced with a spacious island that integrates a glass-top range and much-needed cabinetry. Contrasting against the black quartz countertops is a backsplash made from white subway tiles, which extend up to the ceiling. Open shelving with wrought iron brackets provide convenient and attractive display for dishware and accessories.
