Blueprint for Improvement: Historic Indy mid-century kitchen



This 1957 home is in Indianapolis’ historic Crow’s Nest neighborhood. The new owners wanted to modernize several of the rooms while honoring the mid-century style of the home’s interior. This is part two of a three-part series.


  • The stone wall original to the home had a large cut-out that was formerly an indoor barbeque pit. The opening now accommodates dual ovens.
  • The alder wood cabinetry is finished in a rich caramel color and is paired with a crisp white quartz countertop.
  • Textured deep green subway tile provides a unique and inviting warmth to the kitchen.
