Style and Sensibility
This small, 1930s kitchen returns to its retro roots without sacrificing modern space and functionality. The center island replaces enough counter space to fit a clothes washer and dryer in the room. Details like the farmhouse sink and green glass tile add throwback style.

Shabby Chic Storage
This cabinet, salvaged from another period cottage, is the perfect depth for the space above the washer and dryer.

The built-out backsplash helps to accommodate the relatively narrow depth of the reproduction sink and provides a useful ledge for display.
