Classic Color Combo

A large farmhouse-style kitchen combines classic black and white hues with a rustic wood island for a clean and simple finish.

Indoor and Outdoor Living

A back door and kitchen window leading to the deck make outdoor grilling a breeze. “There is a major indoor-outdoor living element in this house,” says interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn.  “The pass-through between the sink area in the kitchen and the grilling area on the deck is a great example, and what’s excellent is when you’re grilling you can easily pass drinks and food out the window.”

Stylish Stools

Vintage-inspired metal pendants and retro steel and wood stools pick up the black accents found throughout the home and lend an industrial feel to the kitchen.


“Asheville is a farm-to-table community, so it makes sense that the kitchen should lend itself to that,” says Brian. “I covered the island in original wood from the house and added a custom top made out of butcher block, which is awesome for families because you can prepare food and it's easy to clean.”

Handy Pass-Through

A window pass-through above the sink makes for easy transferring of food from the grill to the kitchen and acts like an extension of the home.

Black and White, Just Right

Black cabinets provide a dramatic contrast against bright white subway tile for a classic color combination.

Love Handles

Hand-forged iron hardware lends an industrial look to the kitchen and fits in with the feel of Asheville.

Soaring Subway Tile

Inspired by local boutiques and mom and pop shops, the walls were covered from countertop to ceiling in white subway tile for a polished and clean look. 

Extra Space

A corner, carved out with extra countertop and cabinet space, provides the perfect landing for cookbooks, adult beverages and other kitchen necessities. 

Neat Niches

Niches built inside of the columns allow for integrated bookshelves in the kitchen. “The builders and architects were really smart about using every square inch of this house to the best of its potential,” says Brian.

Hooks for Hanging

Hooks above the stove hold everything needed to put together a meal. “A lot of farmhouse-style kitchens do not have upper cabinets they just have lower cabinets, so what you will find is floating shelves and storage,” says Brian.

Brawny Butcher Block

A custom-built butcher block island is practical for meal preparation and provides the option of an eat-in kitchen.

Open Plan

An open floor plan allows for easy interaction with family and friends while preparing meals in the kitchen.
