Our client's recently moved into a South Philadelphia row home built in 1865 with lots of original architectural details and charm. The kitchen had been updated by the previous owners but did not reflect the feel of the rest of the house or my clients personal style. We worked with them to choose finishes that were traditional with a modern twist and exchanged the the dark wood and beige tones for more clean crisp colors. Small changes like centering the stove, putting in a larger window above the sink and adding open shelving gives the kitchen a light and open feeling.

AFTER: We started with a locally sourced hand-made star cross pattern in White and Persian blue. These colors are warm but yet still had a modern edge to them.
AFTER: Great shot including the custom wood mantel and shelves made by brunodesignbuild.com.
AFTER: The detail below the fire box is a custom fabricated pieces of Pennsylvania slate.
Before: When we first met with this client they showed us photos of this fireplace that was pretty unexciting. After we talked and looked at tiles we quickly realized we wanted this fireplace to have a hand made feel to balance the modern design of the house.
