Mod open shelving, a freestanding island and a professional-grade range turn the kitchen of this early-1900s home into a functional space for the 21st century. Butcher block countertops are functional but casual. White-painted, original cabinetry with black handles, along with the black-and-white tile floor, add to the retro-chic design.
Sleek, modern barstools mix with traditional architectural details in this crisp, clean penthouse kitchen. The kitchen opens into the adjoining living room and benefits from the room's copious natural light. Meanwhile, glossy finishes reflect light and make the small space feel open and airy. Stainless steel appliances echo the polished chrome used in furniture elsewhere throughout the penthouse, unifying the spaces.
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.
In this beautifully designed small kitchen, transparent ghost chairs provide seating at an eat-in counter without taking up visual space. A farmhouse sink and chef-grade stove and refrigerator keep even the most discerning foodies happy.
The vintage feel of this kitchen was preserved thanks in large part to the '50s style refrigerator, while Mediterranean tile lines the walls. Mercury-glass mirrors were added to the cabinet doors in order to brighten the tiny space.
