A Downton Abbey-Worthy Kitchen

Julie Carlson February 18, 2013

Spotted at Light Locations: A restored Victorian house in SE London, with a kitchen for the modern-day Mrs. Patmore. Deep farmhouse sink? Check. Marble countertops for rolling out pastry? Check. Classic Aga range for cooking, baking, and drying the tea towels? Yes.

To see more, go to Light Locations and JJ Locations.

Above: The kitchen features a mix of old and new, rough (painted white brick) and refined (marble countertops).

Above: A brick wall painted white serves as a backsplash.

Above: Rustic shelves provide over-the-range storage opportunities.

Above: Rows of windows allow light to flood the dining area.

Above: A rocking chair strategically positioned in a corner allows for kitchen conversations.

Above: A wood paneled wall adds texture in the spare dining area.

Above: In the living room, a pair of gray upholstered Sark Armchairs and a classic Bluebell Sofa, both from Sofa.com.

Above: In the entry hall, a radiator valve painted red adds the only dose of color.

Above: The neutral palette continues in the bedroom, where pale shades of cream, sage green, and lavender prevail.

Above: In the bath, a vintage dresser serves as sink stand.

Do you have brick surfaces in your house, and if so, have you considered painting them white? See more examples at Another Brick in the Wall and Brick Fireplaces Painted White.
