Kitchen blends history with high-end living

The owners of this 1906 home wanted to make their new kitchen historically sensitive yet a room that blends with the high-end finishes in the rest of the room. This food-loving family gutted the 1980s kitchen and brought in historic details like quartersawn oak floors, furniture-quality quartersawn oak island with rounded corners, stained glass on upper cabinets, and natural materials like granite, soapstone and solid wood. A pass through from the kitchen to dining room goes through a door formerly boarded with plywood. A new cabinet was built into the dining room that fits with the historic buffet. The kitchen also features a patterned tile backsplash.
