Traditional & Warm Kitchen Design

A fresh, lofty twist on classic farmhouse comfort.

With a soft palette of muted colours, the designers of this Vermont home put emphasis on the richly varying textures of nubby fabrics, wool, wicker, washed linen and worn barn wood. Anchoring the vast interior are dark-stained, wide-plank floors. In the kitchen, the island is designed to resemble an old store counter. The stools are by the Shaker Workshops in Massachusetts. A Spanish cast-aluminum table and rattan chairs were used in the breakfast area to complement the room's raw look.
