Old World Kitchen Mood Board

During the summer of 2014 I traveled abroad, for the first time, to the English Isles. I went with a group from college, and we spent most of our time in Ireland. I could write way too much about my short but amazing trip and all of the memories I made, but what was most captivating was the buildings and architecture. Europe simply exudes character and charm because its rich and vast history. Buildings that are hundreds of years old are still standing, and you can't help but leave both inspired and overwhelmed by the unique and charming beauty. This mood board is an ode to my time in Ireland, sitting in the pubs of Dublin and walking the streets of Killarney. It plays off of modern elements of design while incorporating traditional and eclectic charm.

Old World Kitchen:

Into today's Pinterest-crazed design world, sometimes everything starts to look the same. Don't get me wrong, I love shiplap just as much as the next girl; but sometimes it's fun to do something a little less predictable. Some of my favorite aspects of this inspiration board is the "Hunter Green" paint color by Benjamin Moore I picked out for the bottom cabinets. I saw a renovation done over on Studio McGee, & I've been undone ever since. I think dark colored cabinets can be used really tastefully to create a lot of interest in a kitchen that a lot of people shy away from. Also, the herringbone backsplash. This isn't in my kitchen yet, but mark my words, the day nigh. I really hope you enjoy this mood board as much as I enjoyed making it for you.

16. Dining Chair: I feel like you would see this dining chair in an old pub or restaurant, and that's what I love about it. It's functional, while charming.
