Vann Kitchen

A modern farmhouse inspo kitchen with black and white touches.


When I first went to Vann‘s home, she walked me through the her kitchen. The main issue was really just the island. It was smack dab in the center of the kitchen,  it was thin and almost in the way. Where we normally like to have islands in the center of the kitchen, this just called for moving it out completely by creating a custom large peninsula with large functional drawers.

We took down some existing uppers and a desk area that just collected junk and turned it into a bar / wine cooler and added open floating rustic wood shelves.

The house throughout, has a more rustic feel with the touches of b/w/gold. We opted to do a black-and-white kitchen and re-stained the floors. We kept the uppers color as is and painted all the existing lowers and new custom built out peninsula Tricorn Black from Sherwin Williams.

The flooring was the original red oak, orange in color, so we created a custom color for the client that was cohesive throughout the home with grey and light brown hues.

 We originally were going to do a large ivory hexagon tile as backsplash but then switch that idea for a small subway with a light taupe grout because we created a large grid wall that surrounded the space. We wanted that to be the focal point and it is!


The lighting was found at a local boutique shop called “Lucky Home” I always seem to find beautiful light fixtures there! The light fixtures had black and gold elements..something we wanted to include in the design were touches of gold.

We installed all new appliances and used matte black pulls.

The countertop is misterio honed quartz countertop, one of my very favorites because it has a softer light grey veining through out.  The honed texture is beautiful and is top 5 countertops from Pental that I like to bring to the table.


This is one of my favorite transformations, not to mention has the cutest sweetest baby girl and puppy you ever did see!
