Contemporary and vintage styles come together in this California kitchen.
Homeowner Caitlin Blue wanted her kitchen to be vintage and colorful, but her husband, Eric, wanted a sleek, spare and contemporary design. In order to find a balance between the two, the couple hired designer Julie Hart with the task of making over their kitchen. Caitlin got her vintage look with Shaker-style cabinets, a farmhouse sink (albeit in stainless steel) and a pop of orange on the wall inside the cabinets. The contemporary look came about with a contrast of black floors against the white cabinetry and sleek stainless-steel appliances and fixtures.
