This kitchen is part of
the large whole-house remodel of this San Francisco Edwardian. Layers of
paint obscured the molding details, and the kitchen, previously
remodeled in the 70’s, was out of context with the rest of the house.
The new owners were eager to bring the home back to its former glory.
The encoustic tile floor and tin ceiling are the most dazzling features
of this period style room. The interior door and window were removed and
a new pocket door with a leaded glass light was installed. The six
beveled mirrors at the breakfast nook enhance the sense of light and
openness in what was a dark, narrow room. Marble counters and the subway
tile backsplash create a sleek look and provide easy to clean surfaces.
The millwork used echoes of what was in the rest of the house and the
flat panel cabinetry is consistent with furniture of the Edwardian era.
