Homey Country/Rustic Kitchen by Richard Ourso

NKBA's 2013 Design Competition Winner: Before & After Kitchen

Co-Designers: Vickie Mire, CKD, CAPS; Michelle Livings, AKBD, CAPS, LEED

Rough hewn finishes and salvaged wood planks help recreate the Old World French décor the clients truly desired. A custom hood was created, using copper, copper rivets, forged-iron strapping and an old beam, and the finish was left with a naturally dark patina. The island top is made from longleaf yellow pine boards, tied together with forgedairon strapping, while the island itself was fauxafinished in a shade of bluish gray. Open shelving, made from longleaf yellow pine and then sandblasted, projects the look of beautiful old wood, set off with black metal supports. Perimeter countertops in the kitchen and the dining room console feature 3-cm black granite with a Tuscan finish and a chiseled-edge treatment. Whitewashed, old-wood flooring and old beams in the kitchen ceiling and dining room unify the areas and recreate the feel of a French farmhouse kitchen. A French door added to the kitchen exterior wall allows more daylight to flow through.
