Steal This Look: A Modern Farmhouse Kitchen, California Wine Country Edition

July 4, 2017

Earlier this year we dropped in on Gail Deffarari and Belinda Gregory-Head (see In California Wine Country, a Modern Farmhouse for a Brit and a Texan); we especially admired their open cook’s kitchen, pizza oven included. Here are a few ideas for re-creating the look.
