What challenge have you overcome in your kitchen? We added counter space by adding a stainless steel shelving unit for our microwave and toaster oven which also cleverly hides the gas line to the oven. We also put in some shelving units for plates and pots. We accessorized to add some color in the kitchen like our yellow pegboard for our knives, a bright red tea kettle as well as our vintage La Gardo Tackett coffee pot.

What's the story of your kitchen?
The kitchen was a typical San Francisco kitchen, small but it had some character. It was very plain with generic off-white walls, cabinets and white appliances. There wasn't much counter space and storage space except for a few cabinets so we had to be creative by adding these as soon as we moved in.

What is your favorite meal to cook here?
Definitely breakfast for dinner. Eggs, pancakes, coffeecakes, etc. I also love to bake. I make cakes and cookies that I almost always end up bringing to work. John loves my oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.
