Rustic Modern Kitchen


The kitchen was dated, lacked storage and was in need of a makeover. The client is an avid cook, and loves a modern aesthetic, but wanted something unique.


Jennifer designed custom, reclaimed barn-board upper cabinetry, to sit atop the more modern white shaker-style lowers. She staggered the cabinetry beside the fridge to allow for deeper upper cabinets to house large serving plates. The side of the fridge was hidden with a gorgeous panel of reclaimed barn-board.  Open shelving on either side of the stove is the perfect solution for a client who loves to cook, as frequently used items like olive oil are right at hand.


  • Reclaimed barn-board cabinetry
  • Commercial style faucet
  • Glass backsplash behind open shelving adds sparkle
  • Custom made stainless steel range hood
  • Designer lighting pendants hung in a cluster formation over island

“My passion is cooking and my kitchen is now an amazingly happy place for me. It not only looks great, it combines the perfect prep area with storage for my special cooking and serving tools – from my oversized kitchen platters to my Italian peppermill collection.”
