COTTAGE KITCHEN WITH CHIPPY ACCENTS
I have another adorable cottage kitchen to show you today.
This one is in a house in the Historic District of Wilmington, NC.
Since the owners use this house on a part-time basis they kept the kitchen small
but it's large on charm with some unique accents and chippy pieces of furniture.
The small table and chair are SO cute and I love how some vintage
cupboards were mixed in with the traditional cabinetry.
I think the vintage chandelier adds a lot of personality too.
The corner of the kitchen shown below uses an old dresser for added
storage and some pretty artwork on the walls.
I found this kitchen on Houzz where it was featured as a "Kitchen of the Week."
I was surprised by some of the comments which you can read HERE.
Many had strong opinions about using vintage items with chipping paint in a kitchen.
Some just really didn't like the look and others felt it would be unsanitary
and possibly even a health risk around food preparation.
(Ensuring that there had been no lead paint used on these pieces is a valid point.)
This is my favorite quote from one of the comments:
"This is a cute kitchen, but I, too, am not a fan of the peeling paint "tortured" furniture look."
The designer, Melanie Bowe of En Vie Interiors, left a comment saying that
the pieces had been cleaned, sanded and sealed so there would not be any flaking.
Do you like this kitchen?
I know that most of us bloggers love our "tortured" furniture but
what do you think about using it in the kitchen?
I would love to hear your thoughts.
