Marble backsplash, raw wood chopping boards, gold-lined cabinetry, walnut barstools. Ladies and gentlemen, meet my dream kitchen. Cristina here, and I have been strategizing all of the various ways to make this beauty mine. Until that day comes, I’ve found a few golden touches in the form of a Tom Dixon bowl set and the sleekest fire extinguisher you ever did see. I found these wooden barstools at World Market for a steal, and they do a great job of replacing the tractor stools (for now). And my stand-in for the marble countertops? Marble trivets! Keep reading for the rest of my picks to bring it home…

Ed. note: This gorgeous kitchen is a peek into the Brooklyn penthouse of interior designer & blogger Athena Calderone. Stay tuned for more of Athena’s spot-on style, as we’ll be featuring her weekend home in Amagansett later this week!

      It’s the first time I’ve seen cabinets like that, but I’m dying to see someone DIY this.

    In love with the gold-lined lamps and the marble backsplash!

      Me too, I think there’s a simple gold-lined lampshade DIY in there somewhere 😉
