When Alexandra Loew of the NY/LA–based interior architecture firm From the Desk of Lola designed her own kitchen in the Hollywood Hills, she sought to make it as green—and as stylish—as possible. "I used a sink made from 90 percent recycled steel, a natural rubber floor, and no VOC paint," she says. Recreate the look with the following resources.
