F>e°h Fa>mh~u°¾ Updating the kitchen in a 100-year-old home to reflect its heritage, while also integrating top-of-the-line technology, is no easy feat, but it’s one that Gegg Design & Cabinetry expertly accomplished. A renovation removed a small addition and chimney, giving designers more room to let the kitchen breathe. The white, flush-inset cabinetry was designed to mimic the era and feel of the classic shake-shingle home, as were the two polished nickel light fixtures hanging above the island. To add warmth to the room, designers chose mahogany plank wood countertops that create stark contrast with the light, bright kitchen. The English-made fireclay apron sink, polished nickel bridge faucet and glass mullion cabinet doors all stir a sense of nostalgia, while the state-of-theart appliances keep the kitchen current. Blending vintage elements with a modern, highly functional flow makes this a space to savor.
