I absolutely love this kitchen by Jean Stoffer which is actually her home store interior! I especially love the tone on tone mix of whites with the pressed tin ceiling and all the wood. What’s a bit funny, is that while I started this post over a month ago, our new kitchen has a lot of these exact elements too!
Jean’s kitchens are always incredible, and I’ve been following along with the new design she’s creating for Chris Loves Julia too. Soon we’ll all be able to see more of her process on the new Magnolia Network, The Established Home. Read ahead for some of my picks for styling a modern-traditional kitchen design.

These rich oil paintings by Manet are perfect to add depth to a neutral kitchen. Choosing to print them on canvas gives them the luxurious feel of a vintage painting. 1. Pears 2. Oysters3. Melon and Peaches4. Melon5. Apples
Adding new lighting is a great way to make a high impact change in a room without making big changes – just like adding new art! I love this globe pendant, which combines a fresh modern shape with a classic finish.
Adding new deep drawer pulls to white or wood cabinetry is a relatively cheap and very fast update. I liken new hardware to “jewelry” for your home – and these brushed brass drawer pulls are perfect to add warmth to a stark space.
This chrome gooseneck bridged kitchen faucet is a forever classic.
So I LOVE the look of vintage textiles. But in practice, they don’t work for my current lifestyle – which includes a muddy paws and feet and endless crumbs. Perhaps I am too precious about keeping old things beautiful, but maybe that’s a conversation for another day. This runner combines brick, blue and beige colors in a medallion design – AND it’s machine washable.
