A modern farmhouse inspired kitchen

Hello- anyone out there? I’ve missed you guys. Summer has been pretty ridiculously busy around these parts, leaving the blog a bit neglected. One thing that has been keeping me busy is helping a couple out with a remodel on a house they just purchased. The house was built in the 90’s and this couple wants to update it, bringing in craftsmen and farmhouse style touches. One area that’s getting a facelift is the kitchen. Cabinets are in good shape so we’re just having those painted, but also a large soffit was running across the whole room. And y’all know that soffits are for the birds. That soffit came down and upper cabinets will be making their presence known in the room. I don’t want to spill all the beans on the project but I will show the plans for where we are taking this room. It’s your appetizer, to hold you over until I can reveal the finished product!Modern Farmhouse inspired kitchen


Perimeter kitchen cabinets are getting painted white and the island would be painted a dark gray as well. On the perimeter a honed and leathered black granite (9) will top the white cabinets. The island is being topped by one of the prettiest granites I’ve ever seen, a slab of Fantasy Brown (10) is going into this space. A gorgeous marble arabesque tile (8) is being used for the backsplash, with light gray grout. And a farmhouse inspired kitchen wouldn’t be complete without an apron sink (4). Hardware (2,3) and kitchen faucet (5) will be oil-rubbed bronze to bring warmth to the space, along with these wood barstools from Restoration Hardware (1). Let’s not forget about those lights in the plan. You might remember those pendant lights as the ones I put up in my kitchen. These clients were over at my house and loved them and they bring a touch of shine and mixed metals to this space. The caged aged bronze pendant (7) will go above the corner sink in the space and two black and aged bronze lights (6) will hang over the island.

I can’t wait to share pictures of this space when it’s finished. It is going to be a beautiful space for this family to grow old in.

    Great choice on the granite! You get a marble look with the strength of granite. Over the past year we have done several kitchens and bathrooms in the Fantasy Brown, It comes out so beautiful on an island when a waterfall is done down both sides of the cabinet to the floor and is bookmatched, meaning the veins all match up on all 3 pieces. Can’t wait to see the completed pics =)
