At first glance, this 1910 Annapolis, Maryland, kitchen may appear to be a bar too high even for the most ambitious of us. After all, the walnut, imbuia and anigre 11-foot-long island inspired by English antiques is certainly unexpected, albeit stunningly beautiful.
But when I toured the kitchen more closely, which was designed by Richard Anuszkiewicz, i found a handful of decor ideas we can all incorporate into our kitchens no matter how much space (or money) we have.
No, we may not have the extra space to have a butler’s pantry (see just below), although that would be awesome, I must admit. But we can use glass and mirrors to welcome in more light, we can incorporate smart storage for our most frequently used kitchen tools to keep the counters clear and more spacious, and we can also mix feminine with masculine or soft and hard elements to create a welcoming space. From the addition of the chandeliers, the industrial faucet with the beveled farmhouse sink, to the custom glass cupboard doors, subtle, but impressive attention to detail makes a beautiful statement of signature style.
