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!
