Steal This Look: Hollywood Hills Kitchen by From the Desk of Lola

Issue 3 · Belle Epoque · January 19, 2010

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.
