Housed in a mid-century modern, post and beam gem this gulley kitchen, the client was remodeled to reflect its original charm.
The center section of the dropped ceiling was opened up to expose original beams and a long row of charming tilt-down vents. All of the removed forties plywood was salvaged, restored and re-purposed, then combined with new wood -on the hood surround and a few walls. A dash of charcoal, turquoise and red Formica, plus linear cook top arrangements take their inspiration from the good old days.
The long charcoal granite counter forms a wide apron sink with two faucets and two drains. The original 16-foot-long, "boat-style-cupboard" above the sink was refurbished, refitted with glass sliding panels, and lit inside to host all glassware.
The bouncy cork flooring, as seen in photos of nostalgic mid-century modern homes, invites us to step into the fifties.
