Steal This Look: Designer Lauren Soloff’s Colorful LA Kitchen

May 10, 2016

When we featured designer Lauren Soloff’s 1920s Spanish stucco house in LA’s Hancock Park a while back, we admired the neutral-washed interiors layered with a subtle blend of textiles and ceramics. Here, we decode the details of her humble, minimally updated retro kitchen.
