An Inspirational Low Cost Kitchen

An Inspirational Low Cost Kitchen

Located in Hudson, NY, on Warren Street (the town’s main thoroughfare, known for its antiques shops and restaurants), The Hudson Milliner is a recently opened bed & breakfast from Shannon Greer (a photographer) and Charlotta Janssen (a painter and restaurateur). The building formerly housed the town’s millinery shop, and Greer and Janssen have turned it into a guesthouse that looks like a perfect retreat. In particular, the two kitchens boast a retro industrial look that  feature reconditioned vintage ranges, plumbing pipe shelving, butcher block counters, and simple schoolhouse furniture. Here’s how to recreate the look:

I love this, love it a lot. Not sure a rehabbed kitchen stove of this quality will prove to be cheap but it will be beautiful!
