When Grant and Mark moved into their Faircrest Heights, Los Angeles house, it was a rundown mess. But the couple saw it as a unique chance to make things entirely to their taste, particularly the kitchen. As Grant tells Apartment Therapy in this recent tour, "After toiling away for years in a kitchen only slightly larger than a phone booth, my gift to myself when we bought this house was a dream kitchen."
The couple's proudest DIY are the hand-painted, custom-made kitchen cabinets, which were made "using a very tedious multi-step, wet-sanding technique that my father strongly encouraged," Grant says. The Viking stove and refrigerator were also huge, but worthwhile indulgences.
Personally, I love the kitchen's view into the living room area. It's so inviting!
