When Alexandra Loew of the NY/LA–based interior architecture firm Alexandra Loew (formerly From the Desk of Lola) designed her own kitchen in the Hollywood Hills, she sought to make it as green—and as stylish—as possible. “I used a sink made from 90 percent recycled steel, a natural rubber floor, and no VOC paint,” she says. Recreate the look with the following resources.
