"'I wanted this kitchen to be fun and amusing,' designer John Oetgen says. 'The hood, done in hand-hammered zinc, is meant to look like a fabric canopy.' He flanked that 'canopy' with small Gothic-style cabinets. Then he added pale chartreuse tiles the color of olive oil, turn-of-the-century ironwork on the island, and stools that remind him of a French brasserie." — House Beautiful
