Steal This Look: A Classic English Kitchen for an Oscar-Winning Costume Designer

November 11, 2014

Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Duran (she’s known for her work on Anna KareninaPride & Prejudice, and Atonement) commissioned Mark Lewis Interior Design to overhaul her North London kitchen. Her mandate? She wanted to preserve the existing structure while adding a note of modernity. The team repainted the existing wood floors in a checkerboard pattern, lime-washed the antique shutters, and fabricated new faucets made from reclaimed copper piping. Here’s a look at the kitchen and where to source its key elements.
