Upcycled VintageEclectic Kitchen, Sacramento
This 1892 house was purchased by newlyweds, Ryan and Victoria, and was in much need of a renovation. Because of the house's history as a brothel, we wanted to integrate its vintage roots with the modern industrial vibe that the homeowners wanted. We wrapped the main island in reclaimed planks original to the house. Corrugated steel was given a rusty patina that wraps the front of the island. We installed an operable skylight to brighten up the dark kitchen area. We upcycled vintage telephone insulators which now hang from inside the industrial steel lined skylight. Stained pine shelves were installed on the sink wall and along the living room wall supported with pipe brackets. Concrete countertops, Eco Stucco lime plaster walls, new stainless steel appliances and wide-plank hardwood flooring throughout. A second-story addition is in this couple's future as their family grows.
