Craftsman kitchen style is popular for its aesthetic of golden oak, sage green and copper elements.
This Connecticut kitchen is typical of a modified Craftsman kitchen style mixed with a country look. The Shaker or Mission style oak cabinets include the trademark four-square motif in the soffit cabinets. Then there’s the flat oak panel with a strappy border used above the hood. Copper is a material favored during the Craftsman era of the early 20th century. The name came from the magazine founded by Gustav Stickley in 1901. It had grown out of the British Arts & Crafts movement of the late 19th century which championed simplicity and natural materials. Here, that’s expressed by the copper range hood as well as sage-green tiles, which also are typical. There’s even a famous William Morris leaf-print wallpaper pattern used. (Morris had founded the British Arts & Crafts movement in reaction to industrialization).
Craftsman and country can mix. Things take a country turn in this kitchen with the English-style open island, with turned posts and a butcher block top. The island has several rich details, including a round copper prep sink with a quirky old-fashioned faucet. Sweet.
