Kitchen of the Week: A Textural Eat-In Cook Space in New England

The theme of the week on Remodelista? Texture Lessons. So of course we’re returning to Coaster’s Chance: A 1760s Sea Captain’s Cottage in Maine, which, despite its fairly neutral palette, is replete with rich and varied texture: distressed walls, glossy painted floors, rough brick and wood, hardy braided rugs. Just think of it as a texture palette.

Today, we dive deeper into the rustic kitchen.
