I've been working on a design project in Los Angeles for the past 7 months and things are finally progressing to the point where I can start posting pictures of something other than bare floors and naked studs.  When I first met this kitchen, it was a sad, confused little room that made me want to take a sledgehammer to every surface.  The architecture of the house is mid-century, but some genius decided to give it a sorry pseudo-Mediterranean makeover in the 90's, and that's just a crime.  So naturally we took the whole house down to the studs and have built it back up in the true style she was meant to be.  In this kitchen sneaky-peak you can see the basalt stone countertops, custom built cabinets, walnut floating shelves, and stainless steel fixtures, but the real showstopper is that marble backsplash.  I know it looks like tiles, but believe it or not, it actually comes in slab form.   It's made up of post industrial recycled marble that's been drylayed into layers and fused with resin...  blah blah, basically it's super eco-friendly and better yet, it's really really pretty.
