The REAL tin ceilings are really spectacular, the knockoffs are everywhere, but the old tin (or the real tin) actually do make a difference in appearance (and price-tag). The dark wood, high ceilings, era light fixtures and the orange walls make the prepspace cozy. I don’t believe the guests get to see back here, but if they could, they’d be wowed. Since 2007, when I went on the open house tour, this has been my favorite kitchen. Classy and sophisticated. Antique, yet cutting edge.
This is what the home looks like today. If you are interested, please look at their website, Silas W. Robbins B&B. This house, in historic Wethersfield, CT, not only has a beautiful kitchen, but had a beautiful remodel. The house caught fire and in 2001 the current owners, John and Shireen Aforismo, gave the 1873 French Second Empire house a proper restoration and made it into its present day bed and breakfast self. My mother knew a boy who grew up in the house and he said there was such a long hallway upstairs that he and his friends or siblings would bowl.
