Old-fashioned latches and drawer pulls add a vintage touch to new cabinets. Note how the same dark green used for the base cabinets and island can be found inside the upper units as well.
To complement Dan's cabinet design, which is based on original built-ins located in the adjacent butler's pantry, Walter and Amanda made clever paint choices. By selecting a dark green for the base cabinetry and island, they grounded the space with an appropriate connection to nature. Pale gold upper cabinets bring a welcomed lightness to the scheme. Interestingly, the units with glass-panel doors reveal that the same shade of green is used within, therefore completing the association with the lawn beyond.
A veritable farmers market is established by vegetable-motif artwork; leaf-print cafe curtains further embellish this space. But don't let the casual charm keep you from noticing the sophisticated elements too. For countertops, Walter and Amanda opted for granite to provide a seamless transition when paired with stainless steel appliances. These same materials and colors can be found in the adjoining butler's pantry. Here, along with additional storage and food preparation areas, an ice-maker and second dishwasher make entertaining easier.
