A modest upgrade that matches up a vintage knotty-pine breakfast room to a streamlined kitchen.
It’s not easy to produce a new kitchen yet retain a vintage ‘60s look. That was the goal for this kitchen and breakfast room which represents a gentle but intelligent renovation. New Tedd Wood custom pine cabinets blend into the vintage paneling style of the dining area right down to the wood panel covering the Bosch dishwasher (left of sink). A copper farm sink (from Handcrafted Metal) is paired with a Rohl Tuscan Brass faucet and set under Pocono Green granite. The beadboard back splash is painted Benjamin Moore’s Georgian Green. The range (near right) is a Lacanche Cormatin.
The old kitchen had knotty pine batten walls and cupboards plus white appliances, a drop in sink and a cabinet that protruded to shorten the sink wall. An update was desperately needed. In the new kitchen a new black Jenn-Air refrigerator was swapped out for the original white one that had been simply pushed into an open space.
xThe cabinets were a great match for the vintage paneling as the kitchen, finished ca. 2005, shows. It is is not slickly designed. But the aim was to update the kitchen gently, make a knotty pine look relevant and more compatible with the breakfast room. Mission accomplished.
