The first thing I noticed about this Lake Hollywood kitchen is the tremendous copper hood above the stove. Come to find out it looks so lovely because its owner, Chay, scrubbed the old ugly varnish off herself to reveal the gorgeous natural color beneath. The rest of the kitchen is warm and woody, with butcher block countertops, dishes from Heath Ceramics (her biggest indulgence), and polished concrete floors.
