Few of us are lucky enough to have incredible architectural features in our kitchens. This home's kitchen has impressive cathedral ceilings which are intersected by wooden beams - our inspiration for this antiqued distressed kitchen. Kitchen & Bath Details chief designer Tena Collyer used a small crown molding feature to transition the space between cabinetry and cathedral ceiling. To anchor the kitchen Tena used Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry in a beautiful celery finish around the perimeter of the kitchen. Taller cabinets were installed with glass doors for the purpose of showcasing the homeowners collections of vibrant pottery. The center island, with its heirloom stain atop maple and decorative legs appears as a beloved piece of antique furniture.
A master of space planning,Tena made excellent use of the rooms corners, angling the refrigerator and sink on opposing sides of the cook top. Traditional beadboard is used in an unexpected way, as the backsplash and shelving for spices.
