New Old Italianate Kitchen
Here’s a handsome kitchen in an 1880s Italianate house in Brunswick, Maine, that has recently undergone an extensive renovation. The large slate sink and backsplash came from a farmhouse in northern Maine and fit beautifully into the quartersawn oak cabinets. Above the sink, open shelves and salvaged stained-glass windows add color and texture to the space, and a bumped-out window provides a modest but sunny breakfast nook overlooking the garden outside. The homeowners lovingly brought this house back from a deteriorated condition and now have a classic “new old” home that will provide pleasure and satisfaction for many years to come. Good work!
