Tour our Beautiful Buffalo Pass project Posted on May 23, 2019 By hello kitchen

Hey all!

Hannah, here. I’m super excited to walk you through one of our latest completed projects, Buffalo Pass. We like to call this kitchen’s style something of an industrial farmhouse. The space here is ready to work and it really shows! The custom rack and slick pair of stools are what pull this industrial look off. Details like these make the kitchen more functional and add a beautiful, visual integration into the rest of the home.

Out of their Colorado house (that was previously a church!) into their new digs in South Austin, our lovely clients enlisted Hello Kitchen’s help when redesigning their new abode. We could see right away the appeal of their Texas property. During our consultation, the reclaimed gymnasium hardwoods in the living room drew us right in – this was a perfect nod to the repurposed sanctuary that was their prior home. 

During this point in the process, the client’s had selected a palette of paint colors that were previously scheduled. This was a great starting point! One of Erin’s favorite go-to colors is Iron Ore by Sherwin Williams, so she jumped at the opportunity to pull their selected trim color into their new space. We knew the paint would pair perfectly with the red pops they had requested in the renovated kitchen.

Taking note of the blonde oak wood and requested red accents, Erin used this as inspiration for the rest of her approach. A personal favorite detail from the Buffalo Pass project is the handsome porcelain hex floor tile. Incredibly practical, versatile, and yet, so fresh! Below, you can get a glimpse of Erin’s design process and understand what kind of visuals to expect when consulting with Hello Kitchen.


To add depth and sophistication we chose a classic shaker cabinet in SW Iron Ore and married it with hardware that could easily hold its own next to these stunning appliances. Cohesion and contrast were achieved by carrying the dark tones up and around the window frames, through the baseboards, on the trim, and on our custom bench seat in the breakfast nook (which boasts custom cushions). It’s all super cozy! Take a look below to see how it played out in our favorite corner.

We kept things light and airy with a beautiful, textural saltillo subway tile and matching white cabinet uppers. In a signature move, we incorporated our oh-so-popular open shelving in the perfect natural finish. This truly seals the deal in this stunning design.

So what do you think? Is this “farmhouse industrial” style something that would work for you? In what ways would you add a personal touch to your favorite design trend? Please don’t hesitate to let us know – we would love to be a part of your next project! And please, stay tuned! Sources and details into Erin’s design process for Buffalo Pass are on their way.
