The latest post of the Style at Home magazine featured a beautiful kitchen renovation of a historic Victorian home in Toronto’s Beach neighbourhood.
Designer Ingrid Oomen was faced with a challenge; to create for a client a kitchen, an eat-in area and a family room that were light and airy as well as family friendly, and all this from a kitchen which originally was very long and very dark and completely closed off from the rest of the house.
Judging from the below photos this designer delivered what she was asked for and perhaps even more, as the reno results are stunning. She created an open plan concept, featuring a beautiful bistro style kitchen with an industrial feel, which lately is a pretty cool trend in the interior design.
The dark metal open shelves, unique pendant lights and the metal stools give this kitchen the “industrial stamp”, and the shaker cabinets painted in light gray perfectly blend together with these details.
Using the existing bay window, she created a beautiful banquette seating.I love the cozy feel created in this nook using the banquette, these white slip covered chairs and the round black accent table. So homy, fresh and inviting feel.
Even though this kitchen has an industrial feel, the designer managed to preserve the traditional feel of this Victorian house by using shaker kitchen cabinets, and adding only some industrial details such as metal open shelves, the pendant lights and the Tolix stools.
Hope that you enjoyed the photos of this beautifully designed kitchen and living space.
Thank you for stopping by.
