Catskill cabin cabinets



Remember these cabinets I saw at Brimfield and went bonkers over? (here)

 I was just breezing around on pinterest, saw this picture and thought, boy those look like the Brimfield cabinets. Turns out they are--and they're in a cabin in Big Indian, in the Catskills! Lots of pictures here and here. It's just the kind of kitchen I pictured them in. I drive through Big Indian on the way to our house--maybe one day I'll track them down. I think the designers, Jersey Ice Cream Co., did a great job with the whole cabin. It's warm, rustic, funky, calm and comfortable.

    1. I'm glad they
      I'm glad they kept the different colors, but sorry they didn't keep the soapstone. It was heavily scratched, so maybe they didn't find it worth salvaging.

    1. It is a fun kitchen--feels old, like it's been cobbled together over the years.

  3. Hello Jen, Collectors develop a great memory, and it's curious how often the same pieces resurface again and again. I like the new installation, although at the same time, it is a pity that the original structure of the cabinets was not retained..

    1. I agree. The soapstone counters really evoked the industiral history of the pieces.

  4. They are very beautiful: a quaker look, but rather jolly quaker.

    1. The Jolly Quaker: a pub? At least a short story.

  5. Wow, now that's a really cool kitchen. I could have gotten junky or tacky looking quickly but it doesn't look like that at all. I'm really impressed.

    1. I am really taken with their work.Keep going back to their website for more. Such a good balance of potentially tricky things.

  6. Okay. Did you see how they handled the headboard? That's way cool!

    1. The one cutout around the window is brilliant. Love the other one too, with the shelf on top.

  7. It's so nice to see designers using colour in the kitchen. So many are painting everything white and adding stainless steel. Gorgeous use of wood throughout the house. I could live there!

    1. I love color too. I get a little crazy with it.

  8. Yes, very cool use of those - but I never thought of them as regular counter pieces - imagined them as an island. Guess that's why I'm a florist and not an interior decorator! The whole cottage is very appealing.
