Adding cottage appeal, the island features beadboard on three sides, while the fourth side has cabinets and drawers for more storage. The island has a sink and a dishwasher to create a second preparation area that can be used in conjunction with the commercial stove.
The butler's pantry opens into the kitchen and dining room through two graceful archways. A glass-faced wine refrigerator can service both the kitchen and dining rooms.
Architectural detail unites the rooms. The elegant archways into the breakfast area along with the coffered ceiling truly gives this kitchen its charm. The darker woods of the wide planked oak floors, counter stools, table and chairs provide a warm contrast to the cabinetry.
The farm sink is flanked by the same columns used on the island and sits into the room's bay windows.
A mixture of new and old items brings eclectic style to this living room. Handmade Russian glass art mixes wonderfully with an old accent chair. The key to making all of the mismatched items look good together is to keep everything else as neutral as possible.
