Inspired by the craft of building and architecture
Tuesday, October 2, 2012
Once again another killer example of modern meeting rustic. This kitchen is part of a badass renovation of a historic home on the island of Hydra in Greece. Timeless original craftsmanship throughout really sets the tone here from the exposed rugged stone walls to the warmth of the wood ceiling. On the modern side you have the sleek, smooth look of the custom molded base cabinetry and cubbies. The highlight that I feel really transforms and marks the contrast in styles is the glass floor. A genius little idea that looks down into the food storage space.
I'm a 3rd generation home builder and remodeler in Birmingham, Michigan. I have a passion for the way things were back when we started Capaldi Building in 1945. Back when homes were literally built from scratch and guys ate homemade sandwiches out of tin lunch pails. The art and craft of building is something that inspires me every day. I hope that this blog inspires more people to take pride in the space they call home.
