Clean Finishes and Neutral Color Palette Maintain Home's Historic Charm
To maintain the 1929 home's historic charm, designers made sure to honor the character of the home while modernizing the kitchen. To do this, they chose clean finishes for the kitchen with the classic, white subway tile, white cabinets, Cristallo quartzite countertops and clear, schoolhouse shades. These details keep the space feeling bright and airy. To maximize the function of the space and give the homeowners the open concept design they desired, designers opened up the wall between the kitchen and dining room to create visual continuity throughout the spaces.
To highlight the Craftsman design of this 1930s home, designers replaced the rotting, yellow siding with contrasting white siding with black trim. This color palette preserves the Southern charm of the historic, Southern home.
