Adjacent to the mudroom, the kitchen is outfitted with a walnut butcher block counter and a cute retro fridge.

All these modern features fit within the pantry's rustic design, featuring an antique clamp that is attached to the countertop and another 20th Century portrait hanging to the side of the space.
