How can I make our Dutch colonial kitchen look more original??!!
So far, my instant age ideas include our cabinet hardware.
Some reclaimed lumber in a beam + possibly a range hood:
Possible vintage fabric curtains for windows + sink:
And now for my latest, greatest instant age idea!
Tricking out the toe kick!
You see, it’s all about making one’s lower cabinets look like furniture.
Faux legs, like on a dresser!
Or we could include what I’m calling a solid kick.
This is definitely a ‘thing’ now.
All my beloved British home magazines have kitchen toe kicks like this:
And for our last but not least toe kick eye candy,
this kitchen has both the furniture legs + the solid toe kick!
OMiGosh! I’m not sure I could love a kitchen more!
Note to self: find a vintage or vintage-repro rug, stat!
Here’s a contender; it’s indoor/outdoor, believe it or not!
I love that it looks like a modern log cabin quilt!
But, once again, I digress.
Back to my new toe kick obsession.
Poor G.O. is not yet hip to this latest design idea.
I hope to share all these photos with him later today.
Stay tuned, everybody (+ keep your fingers crossed, too!)
