Steal This Look: A Timeless San Francisco Kitchen

September 20, 2022

Proof that this modern kitchen is timeless? The remodel could have been done three or 13 years ago, in the best way. To avoid the obsolesce of too-trendy finishes, architect Malcom Davis achieved an urban farmhouse-style kitchen with board-and-batten paneling, ceramic tile, soapstone, and Carrara paired with industrial furnishings and a Wolf range. Here, we detail the key components of the look.
