Steal This Look: A Perfected Studio Kitchen in Philadelphia

May 17, 2022

In an artist space in Philadelphia, photographer Jason Varney designed and built his dream kitchen as studio kitchen, backdrop, prep space, and for occasional entertaining. With the majority of the work done by Varney, the design makes use of DIY cabinet fronts, readymade paneling, classic appliances, and luxe accents where it counts. Here is a list of the key elements to recreate the look.
