To make up for lost island storage, new cabinetry stretches to the ceiling. Light walls serve as a quiet backdrop for strong architectural elements, pine cabinets, and an island with a 2 inch thick mahogany top. These elements, along with the cabinetrys distressed finish and the dark warmth of the beveled walnut wood floors, combine to create an old French feel, which blends with the rest of the home.
Line the back of shelves or a backsplash with beaded board to add cottage style texture to your kitchen. Paint the beaded board a fun color that matches the rest of your kitchen, and be sure to finish it with a waterproof sealant if you are installing it behind or around a sink. Use windows as a spot for pattern and color in a kitchen where neutrals reign.
