This 1940s home needed a kitchen whose character matched the rest of the home but still had all of the modern conveniences new constructions enjoy. By mixing different textures, using recycled materials and cement tiles designers were able to achieve a vintage feel in the space. Then, modern, stainless steel appliances were added to add an additional element of glamour to the space.
Classic white textures give this vintage-inspired kitchen an elegant feel. The backsplash is tiled to the ceiling above the dark green oven and range with brass hardware, tucked between lovely marble countertops.

Bold, Colorful Wallpaper in Vintage-Inspired Kitchen
Multi-hued wallpaper in a leaf pattern picks up on the yellow cabinet fronts. The custom dry-bar provides extra counter space as well as place to store and display liquor. It's clad in oak wood that was salvaged from wood pallets then run through a planer to give it a smooth finish. Free-hanging steel shelves hanging above the bar are ideal for displaying glassware as well as some of vintage collectibles.
The clean, modern cabinets have beechwood surrounds, plywood back boxes and feature soft-close. The cabinet hardware has the look of weathered copper with a blue-green verdigris patina. Antique inspiration is behind the kitchen island, which is clad in a cold-rolled steel wrapped around a plywood substrate for a smooth and durable work surface.
