A few months ago, I gave a peek of a beautiful project I was working on in the small charming town of Heber, Utah. Today, I am excited to share the completed kitchen with you. Thank you to the talented Jamie Bellessa who collaborated on the project with us and Lindsay Salazar for the beautiful photos.
The inspiration for this project was a modern farmhouse with rustic and industrial elements. We wanted the kitchen to feel clean and crisp but with a softer look fitting the rural landscape of this quiet mountain town. To keep the kitchen bright, we went with white subway tile backsplash and beautiful Calacatta marble counters with a mitered edge.
We softened the look by choosing Benjamin Moore Swiss Coffee paint for the walls and upper cabinets. This white is a favorite of mine for clients that want the white look, but don’t want to risk the space feeling stark or cold. Read my White Paint Guide for more paint tips. To create a more rustic feel we went with a pretty, soft blue for the lower cabinets. We used Benjamin Moore Van Courtland Blue. For more blue paint ideas, read my 2017 Blue Paint Guide.
Brass hardware and faucets look beautiful in the space. We used Waterstone faucets for both the main farmhouse sink and the island prep sink. We also chose Waterstone hardware for the cabinet pulls or consider these for a similar look.
For lighting, we continued creating our rustic vibe with the simple-lined iron Darlana Lantern by Visual Comfort over the butcher block island and paired it with a pair of industrial Timpano pendants from Currey and Co.
A vintage kilim runner adds a bit of bright color to the space. This is a favorite kitchen layer of mine that adds interest and warmth.
Dark wood and brass industrial counter stools create pretty contrast with the soft blue counters. These are from Restoration Hardware, but consider these or these for a similar look at a more affordable price.
I love the way this modern rustic kitchen came together. It feels bright and fresh yet maintains a comfortable warmth. It is a beautiful modern update. I can’t wait to share more of this home with you–check back soon and don’t forget to scroll down to see how you can get a similar look in your own kitchen.
