Designing a kitchen is a lot like cooking- it is about finding flavors that pair well together, choosing certain ingredients that pop, and playing with texture, color, and presentation. For the Faux-Sho kitchen remodel we let ourselves explore juxtapositions between high contemporary and whimsy, letting our imagination run wild as we pictured the kitchen in the existing “church” part of the house. Just imagine the space with soaring ceilings, antique stain glass windows and other existing aspects of the original architecture preserved.
What we came up with was the perfect blend of styles. Sleek walnut cabinets paired with the “original” hardwood floors, modern waterfall edge countertop bar paired with a stone mosaic backsplash, and elegant hardware mixed with heritage decorative objects. We furnished the space with contemporary swivel barstools that bring out the colors in the decorative pendant fixtures and a reclaimed farm style table that contrasted by modern dining chairs. The result is an intriguing mix of old and new, bursting with flavor.
