Kitchen Spotlight: Lisa's Bright, Rich Rental

We are totally loving this collection of Takahashi tin containers from Lisa's beautiful apartment kitchen in San Francisco. It's just a taste of the inspiration we found in this kitchen. It's a rental, but Lisa has lived there for 12 years, and it looks like she has made herself completely at home as a cook.

Look at a few more of our favorite things in this rich and inspiring rental kitchen.

A beautiful pendant lamp and splashes of bright color dress up a rental kitchen into a more personal space.

Goodies in the windowbox.

So much red!

We like the guest chair - make sure there's somewhere for a friend to sit and chat while you cook.

Very much liking this walkway between the kitchen and dining room, with so much built-in storage.

Lovely mismatched flea market dishes.

Another shot of the walkthrough.

A vignette and collection of small objects on top of the microwave.

And from kitchen to table - her absolutely lovely dining room.
