Homearama 2016: Kitchen & Breakfast Area

Our next tour stop finds us in the heart of the home – Homearama 2016:  Kitchen & Breakfast Area. The Kitchen is always the spot where everyone congregates, so we had to do it right! 

Our Vision

Our vision for our homeowners was a livable, updated rustic home so we chose classic white shaker cabinets, Blue Flower granite countertops (from OHM), and a variety of metal tones. Of course, the focal point for this space has to be the copper vent hood!


Our Southern Belle won best Kitchen Cabinetry!  M&H Custom Cabinetry did a fantastic job with these maple construction cabinets.  Square insets on all the Durango doors provide a very crisp look.  Plenty of large drawers along all the lower cabinets for easy to access storage.  All the cabinets have the soft close option so our homeowners will enjoy these for many, many years to come.  


Copper Hood

When we discussed a material for the vent hood, copper keep coming up. The homeowner found this beautiful copper hood in St. Louis, Missouri.  We carried the hand-glazed backsplash tile up and around this beauty.  As decorative accents, we chose mercury glass pendants over the large island and pewter hardware throughout.  



Slate Appliances

We also selected appliances with a slate finish – a great option for eliminating fingerprints on the surfaces. The Kitchen also features a large walk-in corner pantry, double ovens, and a large island finished in a wood tone.


We put in a pot filler above the stovetop to make pasta nights much easier! 13_kitchen-detail-faucet

We used the same rich bronze finish on the faucet which complements the hardwood floors and brown tones in the island. Two oversized swivel counter height bar stools (now available in a smaller size) are for island seating. 


Color Scheme

Sherwin Williams’ Argos (SW7065) is on the walls and carried throughout the Great Room, Mudroom, and all the Hallways.  Our countertops and backsplash incorporates the blues, greens and grays that our entire palette is based on.  In addition, we filled the top glass cabinets with a variety of juggler vases in those same hues.


Breakfast Area

We just love this dining table. The space just called for a round table, and being the only one in the house – we wanted to get it just right. The strong base anchors the Breakfast Area, and the upholstered chairs (also seen in our Mid-Century Renovation ) will provide comfort and a tailored element to the informal space. This chandelier is a personal favorite. It is structured, yet relaxed with the white gold rubbed finish on the rustic cage and single large shade that coordinates with the chairs.


This texturized print is a great choice for our Breakfast Area. A cornice board is perfect to highlight the vibrant pattern.

The large wall clock is a bold statement that fits perfectly in our livable, updated rustic Kitchen and Breakfast Area!


Basement Door

Last, we addressed the basement door off the breakfast area. To bring more light into the space, we installed a half-glass door leading to the Basement stairwell.  Then, we added texture to the window with this woven shade. A ledge along the stairwell was a perfect spot to put some large vases with fun green pom-pom balls.14_dining-detail-basement-door
