The time has come to reveal Part 2 of our Elevated Abode Project! Today we are focusing on the heart of the home- the kitchen, breakfast nook, and living room. This is where so much "living" takes place; we really wanted to create a comfortable, yet elevated environment for relaxing, dining, and entertaining. Scroll through to see some of our favorite moments throughout these rooms!
Starting with the kitchen, good lighting really is everything! We decided to mix finishes and went with brass pendants and matte black sconces for a clean, modern look. Because this room is all white, it needed some warmth through the use of a woven roman shade over the sink- this tied in with the floor stain color perfectly. The overall theme of this room is elevated simplicity, and I imagine cooking in here is quite lovely. Click here for a great charcuterie board option to lean against your backsplash.
The legs of the counter stools have a hammered, antiqued brass finish and coordinate with all the lighting fixtures. These little details make such an impact on a space!
This brings us to the breakfast nook. I have always loved a breakfast nook right off the kitchen! They are filled with character, used frequently, and are just so practical. The table in here was custom made by one of our local craftsmen. It is a cerused oak finish with an oval shape to shake things up. This finish really highlights the wood grain of the oak in a unique way.
