Steal This Look: Playful Color in an Ultra-Small UK Kitchen

May 3, 2022

Working with the designers and owners of Olive & Barr, owner Temi remodeled her small kitchen in an 1890s terrace house while sticking to a budget. Utilizing bold teal color, collections of Temi’s own vintage and antique dishes, an affordable countertop material, and classic range cooker, the kitchen came together quickly.
