Kitchen Design, Hardware, and Selections for the Overgrown Ranch

Gushing over Gold…. Read: Antique Brass

So I am over here, just brainstorming about what the kitchen of the #overgrownranch should look like. I am not too comfortable with the whole “gold is coming back” movement, but not quite as turned off to the idea of this antiqued brass business, especially if mixed with other metals. The key is to sprinkle a little throughout the main living/kitchen/dining space, without overwhelming it. Although I do believe in consistency with hardware finishes, I must admit there is an sort of artistic quality to tastefully mixing metals in a space. It makes it feel unique. After consulting Pinterest, sourcing materials, and checking for the best prices, here are some materials that you may see in the design of The Overgrown Ranch:

Grey cabinets for the island and white for the rest of the kitchen with a white/grey granite as seen here, by the DecorPad. I love how soft this is – not overly modern.

And here, by Decoholic. Although this look feels a bit more mid-century, I think the reason is because of the light fixture and the dark grey cabinets.

Antique bronze hardware will go on the island, and grey-ish black hardware on the white cabinets surrounding the island (think gunmetal). White farmhouse sink and antique bronze faucet, like this:
