Renovating the kitchen was one of the first steps. Cabinets made by Ohio-based David T. Smith, who specializes in furniture from the 18th and 19th-centuries, hides many of the modern appliances. The oven, for example, is located inside an armoire. 'Because our house was not a 200-year-old house, we've remade it in detail to appear as such internally,' said Mr. Wright. 'It has the functioning of a new home, with the look of an old home.'
1924 - How to Equip the Modern Kitchen This article/advertisment was published in the March 1924 Ladies Home Journal and the image featured was the latest Hoosier kitchen. I like the diamond-paned casement windows.
Gloss white handleless doors with a channel handle and matt grey composite worktop, in which a gas hob has been cleverly set into. Teamed with a shiny american fridge freezer complimenting appliances. I really like that multi-coloured lampshade!
A dynamic blend of rustic and industrial, "this is a very American kitchen," Bakes says. "It's easy on the eye." The floor is elm. Viking range and Sub-Zero refrigerator. Cabinet pulls from Doug Mockett & Co.
