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.
Color is a vibrant part of the redesigned kitchen, thanks to color-blocked cabinet fronts that take turns with mahogany ones. Open shelving shows off pretty ceramic dishware, a nice visual tie-in with the ceramic pendant lights.
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.
Two stylistically different backsplashes are used in the vintage-inspired kitchen. Behind the stove are teal-blue vertical tiles extending to the ceiling, while the adjacent wall features dark gray penny-round and is finished with bone white grout to accent the shape of the tiles.
