This vintage hutch has been turned into unique kitchen storage, with a wicker basket on top. Three natural wood shelves store kitchen goods, including a butter plate, bowl, pair of pitchers, turkey plate and books.
In the kitchen, one of the first pieces brought into the space was a hutch from Bryan’s great-grandmother. The family heirloom is now the perfect piece to hold china and the couple’s collection of flatware and glasses. The wood elements of the hutch are repeated again in modern cabinetry and a small bistro table.
A vintage kitchen cupboard handed down from my parents does double duty in a hallway as storage for gift wrap and shipping supplies, kitchen linens and other items. Figuring out where to store things in a historic home is a perennial problem but not as challenging as in previous homes. A small portion of my vintage suitcase collection on top of the hutch once functioned as a much-needed storage tower of suitcases and room divider in the closet-free two-room apartment where I lived with my husband in New York City's East Village. The "Pray for Atlanta" artwork is by beloved Atlanta artist R. Land. A metal basket holds my son's sports equipment and vintage wooden tennis rackets, which we still use.
