Alton Brown and his wife Elizabeth Ingram, who is an interior designer, recently gave Atlanta Magazine a peek at their loft in Marietta, Georgia, and to absolutely no one’s surprise, it’s quirky, and clever, and absolutely stunning. We promptly feasted our eyes on all of the photos of their space — and thought that you should too.

The coolest part about the entire loft (in our humble opinion) is the way Brown hangs his pots in the kitchen. Unlike many people who stow them away, Alton and Elizabeth have hung their skillets and saucepans directly on a black steel wall above their cabinetry and sink (which are made of vintage and repurposed furniture), making them readily available and visually appealing to boot. They’re on full display for everyone to see, easy to grab while cooking, and make the space super unique-looking.

Among the collection are several types of pans, from stainless steel to cast iron, in all shapes and sizes, as well as colors. Altogether, the arrangement makes an amazing medley on the wall that almost resembles a piece of artwork. Aside from being a stunning wall to look at, the collection is a super practical use of vertical storage space that anyone who is short on cabinet space would be wise to implement.

All in all, the entire loft is pretty spectacular and unique — especially the kitchen space and the nifty way of creating proper storage. So, if you’re thinking of remodeling your home or kitchen, take some of Alton and Elizabeth’s ideas. Choose darker colors and vintage picks to make your home similar in style and have some fun with a few pops of color to subtly brighten up your space.
