Kitchen design in a country house: vintage, modern and hand-made
Kitchen design in a country house in which modern and vintage details have organically combined
The design of the kitchen in Ryan's country house and Erin McLaughlin is the result of almost their 12-year search. According to the owners own words, of 100% of their ideas were realized no more than 1%. Two years ago they finally decided to dwell on the concept of an open kitchen and combine it with the living room.
To revitalize the interior it was possible with the help of white cabinets, bright curtains on the windows, numerous light elements and metal chairs in the style of hi-tech.
The greatest pride of Erin is the sink in the farmer's style. The model with a wide front edge looks very organic and is ideal for a country interior.
The fact that the lamps will be white, the owners decided long before the transformation of the kitchen

The kitchen moves smoothly into the living room, where comfort and homeliness reign. The family philosophy of McLaughlin is based on the belief that every object should work, and not just be an adornment, to which it is scary to touch because of its fragility and high cost.

Part of the garage was converted into a laundry room. A few meters away, we managed to place a washing machine and dryer, hangers with bags for clothes, a magnetic record board and hanging cabinets for household trivia. In the other part, from the side of the back door, it was decided to arrange an anteroom.
