Industrial style bar stools belly up to the kitchen island above. The island is trimmed in light wood to match the pale flooring. And there’s a little pop of lime green in the form of an espresso machine on the counter. 

Baskets and breadboards add a bit of texture to the open shelving lined with favorite dishes. The dark counter tops lend richness and just a hint of drama to the beautiful space. The soft colors are easy on the eyes.

Here’s where the convenient part of this Boston farmhouse kitchen comes into play. Pull out shelves in the kitchen cabinets make it easy to access pots and pans for cooking. I have one of those lazy Susan corner cupboards and it’s always a struggle reaching into that dark corner to wrestle with handles and lids to get just the right pot. I’d much prefer to have rolling shelves like this kitchen.

A stainless steel backdrop above the range makes clean-up easy. When you have a tile backsplash, you have to wipe any food or grease out of the grouted cracks. Or in my case – I have a bead board back splash and need to clean the grooves. Fortunately I have bath and kitchen paint on the bead board which makes cleaning easier.

Look at the lovely view the chef enjoys when standing at the farmhouse kitchen sink. Three Victorian sconces help to light the prep area when the sun sets. Such a beautiful room for whipping up your favorite recipes. I think I’d keep finding excuses to cook something if this were my kitchen!

  1. Any paint colors in this beautiful kitchen available. I am looking to repaint our kitchen and love the neutral colors in this room.

  2. This kitchen is lovely, but…I just can’t call any of the new stuff country. I grew up in Central (upstate, Oneida, Chittenango, small towns, not the so called Hudson area country) New York in the 50’s and 60’s, on a small farm, and all the pretty, wonderful country/farmhouse/industrial farmhouse (that idea is creepy! Who wants to live on an industrial farm, lol?) looks nothing like my childhood home. We had pine cabinets that my dad made, with those old black handles, and that multicolor/ mostly red linopteum on the floors, and on the counter tops, with modern (then) aluminum trim. When I was young we had a hand pump at the old deep sink, and before my father replaced the upstairs chicken brooder room with plumbing, we had our baths in a big tin tub with water heated on the new modern electric stove. My sisters and I shared the water, lol. Our water came by a pump that quit every year just when school began, so I had to get washed up in my next door uncles pond…full of leeches. So we had salt shakers to get the leeches off, and Packers Pine Tar soap to shampoo and wash with. Our past is now so faked, commercialized, faked, I really appreciate how you have kept such an authentic home.

  3. This is a lovely kitchen and it would be a joy to cook in. I would probably burn a few things getting interested in what was going on outside those windows, lol!!
