1900 Cottage-Style Kitchen with Wood Trim and Accent Wall

The kitchen of this 1900-era Victorian home was in desperate need of an upgrade. The homeowners wanted to keep the vintage feel of the home, so designers used wood trim and shutters to give the kitchen some of the charm of the rest of the house. To help maintain the classic feel of the home, an accent wall was created using wallpaper. The overall effect is reminiscent of cottage charm.

Traditional Cottage-Style Kitchen with Updated Appliances

The family wanted a space that blended vintage charm with the conveniences of modern appliances, so they chose traditional elements, such as the gold accents and wood trim, and added modern-day touches, like the stainless steel oven and a farmhouse sink. The end result is an overall cottage-style feel.

Victorian Kitchen Blends Traditional Elements with Modern Updates

The details in this kitchen are what truly brings the space together. The homeowners wanted a unique renovation, but were concerned with maintaining the home's integrity, so designers combined a few unique, more modern touches with traditional features to create this stunning kitchen. Wallpaper is used throughout the space to add color and warmth while maintaining the traditional feel of the home. The oriental rug between the kitchen island and the sink is another classic touch for the home. Even the gold accented light fixtures bring in the old world charm the homeowners love about their home. However, they were opposed to white cabinets, so designers installed a countertop that had green hues, which inspired the green countertops in the space, giving the classic, vintage kitchen a stylish modern look.

Warm, Inviting Colors in Cottage Kitchen

The colors chosen for this kitchen make the space warm and inviting. The homeowners decided they did not want white cabinets, so designers garnered inspiration from the kitchen island countertop and painted the cabinets a soft green, giving the space color, while the white countertop and white subway tile backsplash keep the space looking fresh and clean.

Cottage Kitchen with Green Cabinets

The homeowners were against white cabinets from the onset of the project, so they chose the countertops, a gray and white leathered stone with tinges of green, first. The hints of green in the countertops inspired the light green color of the cabinets, giving the space a unique, look that complements the style of the rest of the home.

Corner Drawers in Green Cottage Kitchen

Even the cabinets in this space make the homeowners' lives easier. The corner drawers take advantage of wasted space in the kitchen by providing extra storage.
