Home Renovation Adventures: A Cozy Kitchen in Balmville

You have to see this kitchen and dining room renovation by Mary of Field and Vintage! She renovated her traditional country kitchen and changed it into a modern chic upgrade.

Mary is a designer and home stylist who moved to Newburgh two years ago in a 1940’s Colonial in Balmville. As she says, “It was so darn cute and immediately spoke to us. It felt warm and happy and loved. So we bought it.”

They did the kitchen and office renovation last summer by completely gutting the kitchen down to the studs and removing the wall between the kitchen and dining room to open up the space.

To design her kitchen, Mary chose Carrera marble countertops with white shaker drawer lower cabinetry. For the backsplash, she used white textured subway tile and a grey grout for a modern natural look. She contrasted the white using matte black lighting fixtures and cabinet hardware. She was also able to reuse 100-year-old reclaimed barn wood for the open shelving on top. The oak floors were existing, resanded and stained.

The difference is distinctly lighter and brighter. They also did a little bit more renovation by removing the old office and builtin furniture and adding a shiplap feature wall.
