post earlier today get you thinking about stainless steel countertops? Stacie Billis—co-founder of Chow Baby Foods— is the daughter of a restaurateur, which may explain in part why she was drawn to stainless steel countertops in her home kitchen.
The stainless steel counters were meant to be a temporary solution (Stacie thought she wanted stone counters), but she ended up loving the durable, sleek, low maintenance style so much she kept the stainless steel. The standout feature of this kitchen though, in my opinion, is the high-gloss cabinet wall. The deep olive-tan gives the kitchen a lot of warmth, and mellows the modern, sleek feel of the stainless steel.
