A Brooklyn Townhouse Kitchen of My Dreams

A modern twist to an industrial kitchen. The floor-to-ceiling windows allow for an abundance of natural light. The large wooden island looks small in a kitchen this size. The color palette is very warm and neutral. The kitchen is an impressive double-height space, complete with a living wall of ivy, beadboard-paneled cabinets that stretch from floor to ceiling, a large island made of reclaimed oak, and elegant Vermont soapstone counters and backsplash. It also boasts a Blue Star range and a custom powder-coated dark green hood, as well as a cozy fireplace and a dumbwaiter that connects it to the dining room. The creamy cabinets match the color of the wall. It adds contrast to the original wood ceiling and black range hood. The kitchen is perfect for entertaining since it has easy access to the terrace. Easy for indoor-outdoor entertaining in Brooklyn.

What is a Fireplace in a Kitchen Called?

Back in the day, kitchens needed a fireplace to keep the fire burning for both heating and cooking. This is also known as a “hearth.” The hearth is made up of at least one big, flat hearthstone and can be partially enclosed by a reredos (which is just a low wall behind the hearth), a fireplace, an oven, or even a smoke hood. So, basically, it’s where all the cozy magic used to happen in a home!

The Origin of Cobble Hill

Here’s a quick history lesson about the popular Brooklyn neighborhood, Cobble Hill. Back in the day, like way back in the mid-17th century, Dutch farmers started settling in this area north of Red Hook known as Punkiesberg. Governor Peter Stuyvesant gave the green light for farming. Fast forward to the Battle of Long Island in 1776, the Continental Army came through and called the area “Cobble Hill” because it reminded them of a hill they had fortified in Boston.
