A Family Affair
One family in Lower Gwynedd, Penn., opted to scrap their Tuscan-inspired aesthetic in favor of new-traditional charm.
Philadelphia–based Shophouse founding partners Betsy Helm and Kiley Baun reimagined the kitchen to suit the needs of the young family.
Shophouse embraced the layout’s continuous flow with a fresh white wall color that created a unifying backdrop for large pre-existing windows and soaring ceilings.
A bright and airy envelope was formed with paper-white cabinetry that was extended from counter to ceiling around the stove.
Previously octagonal, the island mirrors the counters and features wooden, bar-height chairs, which highlight the quartzite countertop’s gray tones.
The majority of the light fixtures and all of the new hardware is comprised of polished nickel to complement the color palette.
