1. The kitchen island is made from new knotty alder that’s been distressed to look as though it’s an antique find. A low barrier wall encased in mosaic tile shields the sink (and dirty dishes) from view.
2. The frame’s yellow pine timbers were reclaimed from a North Carolina tobacco factory. Combining the patina of weathered wood next to fresh stain creates an intriguing contrast.
3. Hand-scraped reclaimed oak flooring flows throughout the main level. The durable material is perfect for a kitchen that strives for an Old-World appearance.
4 .The Colorado fieldstone, quarried from a nearby ranch, is a natural complement to a classic timber home. The partial wall gives a little separation to the kitchen area without closing it off entirely.
5. An alcove just off the main cooking area plays host to a wet bar and provides a spot to put prized bottles of wine on full display.
