A popular painting technique used to refurbish antique furnishings would be antique washing, also known as distressing. This technique are usually used on vintage pieces, giving it a more casual, rustic feel, while accentuating the classic features and natural imperfections of the piece. This old English style kitchen has well preserved Oak kitchen cabinets, but since the space is already full of wood finishes (both floor and ceiling has wood), antique washing the kitchen island was a great refurbishing decision as it helps break the heavy monotony of wood on wood.
This kitchen features cream-colored cabinets with black iron handles. Cream is also used in the beautiful arch moldings over the wash basin window and the plate rail above the range hood. The centerpiece, topped with a trio of crystal glass pendants, is made of a distressed wood base in green tones and Neoclassical carvings and a cream granite stone countertop. The honed travertine floors laid out in a random course bring together all the elements of this cream-colored country style kitchen.
