They both have cool blue-and-grey colour pal­ettes de­signed to im­press. And they both boast gor­geous tile floors that epit­o­mize the term “wow fac­tor.” But what re­ally links these two out­stand­ing kitchens is the own­ers’ de­ter­mi­na­tion to en­sure that their newly ren­o­vated spa­ces are sym­pa­thetic to the age of their 1930s-era homes. In both kitchens, rus­tic touches are bal­anced with mod­ern de­tails, re­sult­ing in in­spired spa­ces that en­cour­age fam­ily and friends to gather.
