When kitchens are, “ a little bit country, and a little bit rock-n-roll,” they marry rustic and contemporary elements without hitting any false notes. The look is unique and timeless. It is not simply about the choices in materials, but the way the finish details pull everything together.
In this Steven Gambrel designed kitchen, the stainless steel on the traditional La Cornue range recurs in the the industrial style refrigerators, while the brushed brass finish is balanced by the creative touch of the nail head trim around them. The yellow-gold of the brass is subdued by the juxtaposition of the muted wood cabinetry, and the soft finish of the wood floors.
The cabinets in this island have the look of an old-fashioned ice box with the modern twist of stainless steel feet. The black hinges integrate with the dark finish of the traditional style bridge faucet, and the top of the range.
This kitchen by architect Ken Pursley has what he called, “an early american language,” (via article from House Beautiful) with furniture like details on the cabinetry. While Pursley references the style of a colonial kitchen, nothing about the design feels like a textbook imitation.
The antique style sconces above the range look right at home under the contemporary hood.
