The Kitchen

Designer Trick: This quartz countertop is naturally stain-resistant and is certified as a safe food-prep surface. We love how the quartz surface extends to the cabinet’s baseboard on each side.

Favorite Detail: tiling an entire wall, not just the backsplash. We love how this expanse of tile transforms the kitchen’s back wall into a textured mosaic.
