A MIX OF OLD & NEW

Old House Journal - - Ohj -

In­set cabi­net doors and ex­posed hinges were a given, de­spite the added ex­pense. Pe­riod de­tails mask the mod­ern lay­out. Muntins in glass-front doors form the cross pat­tern so com­mon in pe­riod de­tail­ing. Painted cab­i­nets are ap­pro­pri­ate for a mod­est house of the pe­riod, and they are also eas­ier on a bud­get. The cab­i­net­maker sug­gested the “feet” as a nod to kitchen fur­ni­ture. The col­or­ful checker­board linoleum floor “is a bit bold for our con­ser­va­tive taste,” says the owner– ar­chi­tect, “but we love how it turned out. It brings so much in­ter­est to the space.”
