Classic Soapstone Kitchen

Detail shows the brass drawer pulls on the inset drawers as well as a small paiting, a wooden bowl and a utensil holder.

The oldest home on the block, this south Minneapolis house started out as a stand-alone, quite a distance from town. While the surrounding neighborhood has filled in, it has been thoughtfully updated and taken care of; the owner purposefully celebrating its 1905 midwest roots. What fun to design a space that respects all that!

We created a sink window where there wasn’t one, and built it out with side walls to accommodate a deep quartz ledge. 

The cabinets are painted a beautiful deep green color, Farrow & Ball Studio Green, done almost matte, in a soft 10% sheen. The built-in hutch to the left of the range nods to the era while providing tons of storage in the multiple drawers, not to mention beautiful exposed storage behind glass.

The built-in pantry around the corner, in a creamy white, Benjamin Moore Dove Wing, offers space for food as well as room for recycling. The brass knobs and pulls, widespread bridge faucet, honed soapstone, and textural subway tile on the backsplash all come together to create a space that feels perfectly at home in the grand old house.
