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 We realized we shared a similar design aesthetic and began work on a fresh new design for the outdated kitchen in her treasured vacation home.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.

Residential Renovation:Part 3 The Master Bathroom

This nearly 100 year old suburban Boston home underwent a head-to-toe renovation designed by Hundred Acre.  We kept the classic bones of the home intact, and updated the layout and finishes to suit a young family’s needs.

The Master Bathroom

We carved out a corner of the large Master Bedroom to create a brand new light-filled Master Bathroom. The cool and calming palette and heated floors create a spa-like atmosphere.   The floating walnut vanity along with the sleek glass tiled shower and porcelain tile floor set a modern tone, but to infuse the room with some vintage character, we had our contractor custom install a salvaged textured glass panel into the pocket door.

The Butler’s Pantry

The Butler’s Pantry is, without a doubt, my favorite room in the house. Originally designed as a transition space between the Kitchen and Dining Room used for silver storage and meal service, today’s Butler’s Pantry can serve multiple functions. This particular little gem houses the washer and dryer, a prep/laundry sink, the microwave and its primary feature, the bar. The Butler’s Pantry  is the perfect opportunity to play up accent finishes. Here, we painted the cabinets a darker gray than the adjacent Kitchen and featured a classic white Carrara marble for the countertops. The sliding glass doors of the bar cabinet were original to the home, and were refinished and re-installed in a new wall cabinet to house the family’s glass and stemware.

Residential Renovation: Part 1 The Kitchen

The Kitchen

IMG_9216

The former mud room/kitchen was combined to create a larger, more functional space centered around an island that does double duty for both breakfast and cooking prep.  Custom Shaker style painted cabinets replaced the dated cabinetry that was original to the home. New wood flooring to match the rest of the house replaced aging linoleum tiles, and top of the line appliances, plumbing fixtures and a modern glass tile backsplash were added. To infuse the Kitchen with this family’s appreciation for vintage industrial style, Hundred Acre custom made the island from an century old pine work table and vintage school locker drawers. See our post on the Rockledge Kitchen Island here.
