Joanna Gaines’ Kitchen Cabinets Bring Texture and Simplicity Into Her Cooking Show’s Set
All-white kitchens is an interior design trend that’s dominated the industry for awhile. But more recently, designers have started shying away from the white-everything look to add a little texture into the mix. Joanna Gaines is one of those designers, who recently gave her new TV kitchen an update, adding a touch of texture by using a specific type of cabinetry: raw wood with brass hardware.
Gaines opted to go with this combination that made the “Magnolia Table” cooking show set “feel really textural and simple and clean,” she told Architectural Digest during a recent tour of the space. Gaines explained that she was inspired by the history of The Gristmill, an 1800s old flour mill where the show is filmed.
“For me, when I was thinking about the design, I just wanted it to be completely authentic to what it was,” she explained in the interview. “So as we researched and dug deep, we heard there was a whole interior of rock. We started getting into it and taking all the drywall off. All the beams that were painted, we sanded down so you could see the raw wood.”
Instead of adding sleek stainless steel appliances, another trend of the last decade, she opted to juxtapose the space’s “bare stone walls” with top-of-the-line brass, vintage-inspired appliances “for an interesting look that stands out from other cooking shows.”
Other design accents we can’t get enough of? Copper pots hanging off a brass rod, the combination of white stone and butcher block countertops, and open shelving, showing off her perfectly organized spices and ingredients.
