This is an rendering of a kitchen from the 1920s and is the look that inspires what I'd like to do in our kitchen renovation.
If you put a black and white floor in this one, and replaced the handles and fixtures, it's close to perfect-
I also like many things about this one--the black and white floor on the diagonal, butcher block countertops, some open shelving for our everyday glasses and white dishes, and racks taking advantage of wall space. I also like how the wood shelves and table, along with the countertops, give the room warmth.
Love, love, love this-
For an alternative to black and white, I like this play off of a traditional checkered floor using tiles--subtle but still a vintage feel.
