A Rich, Warm Los Angeles Kitchen

Kitchen Spotlight

Whoa. Apartment Therapy just posted a house tour that has what may be our favorite kitchen ever. Take a look!

This 1920s home in Hancock Park, Los Angeles, is one in a fourplex of apartments. The apartments had been badly abused in the process of 90 years of modernization since they were built. The owner of this unit stripped away the bad but left the good.

We are just absolutely smitten by the kitchen in particular. There is a warmth in the wood and in the stainless fittings that feels utterly perfect for a 1920s Los Angeles home, and the window open to the outside (and to the amazing garden!) bring the warmth and light of Southern California into a cozy kitchen.

From the restored wood in the floors and countertops, to the way that the compact yet fully functional is laid out, we just can't help but love it. This one is going in the inspiration file for sure.

Even though the sizes are quite different, this reminds us just a bit, too, of that other absolutely fabulous kitchen we visited in Los Angeles:
