Veronica and Keith’s Nightshade-Hued Homey Handmade KitchenKitchen
When I first saw Veronica and Keith’s Chicago kitchen, I was struck by the deep blue hue, and the contrast it made against the jadeite and milk glass dishes. The dramatic color (“Nightshade” by Behr) grounds all the other disparate, yet homey elements, like the painted rug in front of the sink, the giant white shutters made from a vintage room divider, and the marble countertop made from a repurposed coffee table.

The kitchen occupies the back of the apartment, and while roomy enough for a table that seats eight, the actual cooking and prep area is tiny for a professional chef. There is a small electric stove and oven, no dishwasher, and minimal storage and work space.
