Today we make our way to a small town in Ohio where a family built their dream home. Inspired by the classic look of traditional American farmhouses, they built a home from the ground up- and even used pieces of reclaimed wood from the house they demoed! The family has been sharing their progress on Instagram for over a year and we’re excited to take a look at their completed kitchen built by Oliver Hazzard. Prepare to say “Kitchen Goals”.
The duo wanted to achieve “harmonious contrasts” using color, form, and embellishments to create a striking yet cohesive and balanced appearance. This included bold, blue modern inset shaker cabinets adorned with a traditional finial hinge and topped with Statuario Maximus countertops against a classic tile backsplash.
When installing the glass cabinets, they opted for groove cherry on the inside to both match the cherry butcher block island and avoid making the space dark by painting it the same blue as the outside. As consistency is key, Statuario Maximus was extended to the cabinets.
Dutch doors were used throughout the home to create a more inviting feeling. This one, leading to the mudroom, lets more light into the kitchen and dogs out.
After much consideration, the couple decided on aged brass pulls against the bold blue cabinetry as the brass would add warmth.
The best decision they made- ditch uppers for windows and open shelving. This allowed for all the natural light possible with the added bonus of a nice view. The walk-in pantry and ceiling mounted open shelving made of stair rods make for a unique storage solution!
Design is in the details, and the two were paying close attention! As a last minute decision, they decided for the farmhouse sink to be surrounded by cabinetry, thus moving the dishwasher farther to the right. They also decided on black windows for that extra contrast against the white counters.
Peeking to the right sits a large dining area. As the entire space is surrounded by large windows, you can feel like one with nature while sipping on your morning coffee!
If you love the kitchen, just wait until you see the rest of the house! Take a look at Oh! Farmhouse for more project insights and home inspiration.
