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 We realized we shared a similar design aesthetic and began work on a fresh new design for the outdated kitchen in her treasured vacation home.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

This 2’x6′ kitchen island was custom made using a thick reclaimed pine top, and vintage industrial steel machine legs.

The island is 36″ high (countertop height) and the top is finished with tung oil for a food-safe prep surface.

Residential Renovation: Part 4 The Master Bedroom

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 Bedroom


The main feature of the Master Bedroom renovation was a handcrafted headboard wall made from reclaimed wood planks. The headboard wall also serves as the partition between the new en-suite Master Bathroom  (previously featured here). Hundred Acre created this piece using wood collected over the years from different locations around New England. We finished the headboard wall by wrapping it in a crisp white painted frame, and adding two industrial sconces from Restoration Hardware.



As an added detail, the headboard wall extends just slightly past the wall, revealing more of the salvaged wood planks from the back.
