Designer Cynthia Soda takes you behind-the-scenes of this dramatic heritage kitchen makeover. See how she updated the dark and drab space with a modern farmhouse feel, using striking green cabinets, mixed metals and touches of black and wood. Matte porcelain countertops are both hardworking and luxurious, while shiplap detailing on the vent hood and island injects country flair into the family hub. Plus, you’ll love how Cynthia transformed the stairwell into a petite office nook.
