Last month with featured a
kitchen renovation project from deVol in a Georgian terrace off Regent’s Park in London. While the project is new, the design decisions are everlasting—from the lighting (a pendant we’ve all coveted for years) to the traditional brass faucet and ultimate French gas range. Here is a breakdown of the key elements to co-opt the look in your own kitchen.
