Vintage Kitchen with a Modern Twist- North Barrington, IL

A young family loved the setting of this vintage home in North Barrington but desired an interior that matched the exterior beauty. For the kitchen area, the homeowners opted for open shelves, where they can store cookware, sets of dishes, and lots of cookbooks. The final design left them with a beautiful long island that is perfect for large gatherings and meal prep! A complimentary butler’s pantry was designed just off the kitchen. And, in an adjacent nook to the kitchen, our designer transformed the unused space into a convenient command center for the family, here they can plan menus, keep mail and papers out of the work area, or the kids can get their homework done in their own quiet space.
