This vintage condo in the heart of Lincoln Park needed an update that fit with all the traditional moldings and details, but the owner was looking for something more fun than a classic white and gray kitchen. The deep green and gold fixtures give the kitchen a bold, but elegant style. We maximized storage by adding additional cabinets and taking them to the ceiling, and finished with a traditional crown to align with much of the trim throughout the rest of the space. The floors are a more modern take on the vintage black/white hexagon that was popular around the time the condo building was constructed. The backsplash emulates something simple – a white tile, but adds in variation and a hand-made look give it an additional texture, and some movement against the counters, without being too busy.
