It’s not uncommon to hear “Modern Farmhouse” these days. Thanks to shows like “Fixer Upper” with Joanna Gaines, we all want shabby chic, farmhouse, shiplap everywhere! A vintage farmhouse sink — it needed some love, but had great lines and was such a statement piece for the time period of this home from the 1920’s. According to Forbes magazine, to decorate and design your older home you should do one of ten things. For us, we only needed #8 “Mix Traditional and Modern Pieces” using the old traditional style of the sink with the modern glass work in the upper cabinets. By incorporating dark countertops, we were able to design the kitchen around the sink, keeping it the focal point of the space. Not an easy task when kitchen counter tops these days are trying to steal the show!
