Steal This Look: A Modern, All-White Kitchen in Maui

May 16, 2017

Yesterday we featured the latest project from New York architect Roberto Sosa: the renovation of two 1940s beach cottages on the north coast of Maui designed in collaboration with the owner George Hensler. The main house’s slender, all-white, U-shaped kitchen, is at once modern and retro, with concrete counters, globe lights, and American pottery. Here’s a list of ideas for re-creating the look.
