Vintage Inspired Cape Cottage

We met the owner of this charming Upper Cape cottage when she bought one of our custom kitchen islands a few years back. We realized we shared a similar design aesthetic and began work on a fresh new design for the outdated kitchen in her treasured vacation home.

Given that the kitchen was housed in a single story structure with a steep gabled roof, we immediately decided to remove the existing low ceiling to create a light and open cathedral space. Reclaimed pine beams that were installed as structural ties, along with the painted shiplap boards that clad the gable ceiling, helped to define the modern farmhouse feel that the client was hoping for.

We added a larger window with an arched transom above the fireclay farm sink to let the summer light pour in.

The homeowner’s collection of vintage accessories and light fixtures complement the classic white shaker style cabinets and soapstone countertops.
