Fresh hot apple pie not included.

  Black stone worktops, waxed concrete walls, and the traditional rustic tiles (called “witjes”) give textural and tonal variety and offset the warm woody tones that dominate this kitchen. The rustic theme is continued in the iron hooks and bars—simple but effective fittings. All these details make you feel like you could really cook up a storm.Photo by Rene Mesman.

  San Francisco architect Christi Azevedo created a cozy and inviting kitchen through lighting and color palette and did it very affordably, thanks to a sanded acrylic sheet used as a countertop, flooring made of cheap HardiPanel exterior siding (just $1 per square foot), Ikea pendant lights, and a reconditioned vintage stove snagged on Craigslist for $15. Azevedo put her metalworking skills to good use creating the open shelving out of hot-rolled steel. A rolling ladder ensures access to the highest shelves.photo by: Dave Lauridsen  Photo by: Dave Lauridsen
