Steal This Look: A Polychromatic Dream Kitchen in Hackney, London

August 18, 2020

Danish-American couple Catherine and Toke Nygaard moved from California to a Victorian townhouse in East London. Their remodel, by Mike Tuck Studio, includes the ultimate Scandi-meets-Brit kitchen made up of Plain English cabinetry, Dinesen flooring, modern British craft furniture, and an unexpected color palette (pink and green). The look as a whole works so well, it’s infectious: All of us at Remodelista are taking note. Here’s a list of the kitchen’s key elements, right down to every light fixture (there are many) and accessory.
