Steal This Look: Tradition Meets Modern in a New England Kitchen

August 10, 2021

Last month we took a look into the Victorian cottage of Krissy O’Shea in Somerville, MA. The project is a clear blend of high and low decisions: custom cabinetry and Farrow & Ball paint offset by keeping old kitchen cabinets and vintage furniture. Admiring the kitchen, we decided to dissect the key elements of the space.
