One part modern, a splash of industrial, a pinch of Scandinavian, blended with a few rustic & vintage elements and you have the recipe for the Workshop Inspired Kitchen. It’s like home economics and wood shop class had a little too much to drink one night in the science lab. It’s a beautiful Frankenstein for those who really love to cook.
I’m sure the workshop kitchen owes much to this famous kitchen:
Julia Child had it right. Why waste time searching for the right pan, measuring cup or a spatula? Her legendary peg board organizer helped make her a boss in the kitchen.
Here’s a look at some beautiful, functional, approachable, modern but definitely not minimalist workshop kitchens.
This NYC cooking school, cafe, store & event venue, Haven’s Kitchen is the epitome of workshop inspired design. Just look at this wonderful place!
Open shelves, stacks of bake and serving ware, and lots of fresh ingredients close at hand are all hallmarks of this design aesthetic. It’s communal, welcoming and all about creating something delicious with the people you love. Here are just a few items that I think are necessities in the workshop kitchen:
Good quality cutting boards (I love these personalized ones from OSOhome)
This Rock Bottom Vessel from Studio 50. The concrete base can be heated or chilled so you can serve tea or white wine (along with countless other things) from this handsome piece.
and a rolling rack to keep everything close when you need it.
I suddenly feel like whipping up a batch of brownies!
