This enchantingly whimsical kitchen exudes a charm that encapsulates the perfect combination of modern and vintage appeal.
“The owners of this enchanting kitchen – a butcher and a baker – were after functionality, comfort and charm. The exclusive design caters to the owners’ love of entertaining and cooking together. Both have full access to the kitchen, while maintaining their own space. The owners love the pantry and its ability to hide away dry food and appliances while doubling-up as a light-box feature. The use of raw metals, recycled wood and vintage fixtures offset the contemporary cabinetry. This whimsical mix of modern vintage offers character and appeal. It’s rustic, playful and picturesque.”
