Currently admiring: color-blocked cutting boards, handmade by Lostine in Philadelphia.

When I first spotted these sycamore boards, I wondered if it made sense to have a painted cutting board. But after learning about Lostine’s process, in which the boards are painted with food-safe milk paint and protected by a coat of mineral oil, I was convinced (so convinced, I ordered the colorblocked bread board for my own kitchen).

Above: The boards range from $128 to $248 at Anthropologie.

Above: The one I bought: Colorblocked Bread Board; $128.

Above: The Colorblocked Balloon Cutting Board features a leather-and-wood handle; $248.

Above: The Colorblocked Baguette Board; $198.
