Michelle’s Gracious Craftsman Kitchen

Some kitchens just seem built for holiday cooking. This gracious kitchen from a traditional Los Angeles Craftsman home is one of those — it just looks like it was built to handle turkeys, pies, and hordes of relatives. Read on for more of this lovely kitchen with vintage built-ins and lots of light.

This kitchen is much bigger than our own, but it does remind us of our own 100-year-old bungalow home and the challenges of updating an older home while staying true to its roots. We really love this kitchen; we love how the marble and subtle gray paint are sleek and quietly modern, while complementing the old-fashioned stove and enormous bank of built-in storage.
