Want a classic look that never goes out of style - but with some modern touches for pizazz? Here's how I achieved the two in my 100 year old house kitchen reno.


  • White cabinets and marble counters never go out of style. See entire kitchen here:
  • A red stove for a modern touch but the stove/oven combo is old style. See entire kitchen here:
  • Tile up the entire wall and wrapping around the doorway is very old school and gives a more custom look than a backsplash that stops below the cabinets. See entire kitchen here:
  • Vintage touches like this old paper cutter add warmth to a white kitchen. See more here:
  • Giant glass lights (demijohns) don't take up much visual space - but they are a focal point. See more here:
  • A built-in that mimics the look of a piece of furniture with open shelving for displaying collections. See more here:
  • The Before - it's a 100 year old house but somebody did one heck of a 70's reno before I got to it! See the entire kitchen here:
