Steal This Look: Making the Most of a Small Kitchen in Vancouver

January 18, 2022

One of the more popular kitchens we featured last year is photographer Gillian Steven’s full kitchen remodel in Vancouver. The calm and pure off-white kitchen has a timeless appeal: from marble counters to open shelving and unlacquered brass, no element is too trendy and thus, too susceptible to falling out of style. Gillian called out her favorite features of the remodel in our post, Sunshine and Storage Aplenty in a Tiny Vancouver Remodel, and here we source the main aspects along with accessories to recreate the look.
