This airy, light-filled kitchen in Australia, photographed by Amanda Prior, features a mix of sleek (commercial stainless-steel counters and storage units) and rustic (rush baskets, bamboo blinds, pale green pottery) elements.

 Recreate the look with the following elements:

Above: The versitile stainless steel Grundtal Wall Shelf is $14.99 for the 31.5-inch-wide model at Ikea.

Above: The Grundtal S Hooks are available in packs of five for $3.99 at Ikea.

Above: Pottery Barn’s Sausalito Dinnerware in celery is currently on sale; made of high-quality earthenware, a 16-piece set is $139 (down from $160) and includes four dinner plates, four salad plates, four cereal bowls, and four mugs.

Above: English paint supplier Farrow & Ball describes Cooking Apple Green as "an old-fashioned, non-strongly colored green made from common earth pigments and lamp black rather than the newly developed 19th-century chemical pigments." Go to Farrow & Ball to locate a dealer or to order a sample pot.

Above: The Purus II Single-handle Kitchen Faucet from Blanco; $477 at Designer Plumbing Outlet.

Above: For a stainless undercounter cabinet, we like the Architect Series Stainless Cabinets from Stainless Steel Kitchens. Contact Stainless Steel Kitchens for pricing and ordering information.
