I love the combination of period and modern. Too much of either can sometimes be overwhelming but this is cool and quirky.

I like the overall feel of this kitchen, but I agree with some of the comments that there are too many open shelves. I also would have improved flow by either putting the sink on the island if the island is long enough, putting a small prep sink on the island, or reversing the range & sink. In all options I would aim to leave 3 feet of counter space for a work area between sink, range, & refrigerator.

Love the open/closed shelves and cupboards, and the colour scheme throughout the house is brilliant. We love to have 'stuff' in our lives so why put it all away in cupboards!? The teal in the Victorian terrace room then the flood of light (British though it be) and whites and yellows in the new kitchen works so well.
