The kitchen is one of those rooms in the home that can easily lose its personality in favor of "cleaner" selections with slick surfaces. But it turns out that finishes with some age and character to them tend to make a space feel more personal.
We've been working on a kitchen renovation that uncovered a structural column smack dab in the center of our design. To incorporate the discovery into our scheme, we set vintage railroad ties on all sides of the concrete structure, and the gorgeous patina of the wood makes the eyesore melt away. We definitely enjoy bringing an old roughed-up wooden texture to add loads of life and color variation into the kitchen.
