Historic Connection: Moss-green Shaker-style cabinetry creates a vintage aesthetic in this restored old-house kitchen. A rich glaze over the green paint adds to the patina. A porcelain farmhouse sink and beaded-board backsplash in crisp white also honor the vintage vibe and provide crisp contrast to the green trim and cabinets and the black countertop
Design It Right Even an entry opening directly into a living space can be functional. Here a simple bench provides extra seating and convenient storage underneath for blankets, picnic gear, and winter-weather accessories. Wainscoting gives the space a more finished look, supplying a seamless transition from entry to living areas. Small sconces flank the mirror above the bench, adding ambience and making the entry more welcoming after dark.
