Posted on April 10, 2017 by Judy Rom


The kitchen truly is the heart of the home. It's a place to prepare meals, share bites and create memories. A great kitchen starts with fresh kitchen inspiration and we've found some beautiful ideas to inspire your ultimate dream kitchen.

Mix of Old and New

Our ideal kitchen is a mix of old and new. Modern equipment is perfectly offset with antique furniture, high cabinets and stunning pilasters.

Antique Islands

Antique furniture is just gorgeous for the kitchen. Take the idea to the next level by repurposing an antique table as a kitchen island. It adds so much charm!

Beautiful Light Fittings

Another way to use antique pieces in the kitchen is through lighting. Beautiful light fixtures in the kitchen have such an impact. Just look at how this stunning chandelier ties together the room's rustic and modern elements!

Bread Boards

Wooden bread boards are both functional and beautiful. We love to use them as cheese and charcuterie platters or hung on the wall to show off their patina. These pieces are beautiful and it seems we're not the only ones of the opinion. Prominent wooden boards are a hot kitchen trend!

Antique Rugs

Antique rugs look gorgeous in the kitchen. We love the glamorous splash of color that they bring and they are a very chic kitchen addition. What could be nicer than a luxurious rug under your feet while you're making breakfast?

Stoneware and Wooden Crates 

Collections of wooden spoons look delightful in vintage stoneware crocks. We also like using wooden crates to help organize our kitchen. Here's a clever way to bring the two ideas together.

Open Shelves

Open shelves are an endearing kitchen trend. This style allows you to showcase your dishes and treasured small antiques. Open shelves are also very convenient as you can easily see and grab whatever you need!
