Steal This Look: A Modern Brooklyn Kitchen, Ikea Cabinets Included.

For the renovation of their 1890 Victorian townhouse in Park Slope, Brooklyn, the owners turned to firm Frances Mildred for the architectural design and Sheen Murphy of Nune for the interiors. The kitchen is a mix of Ikea inner cabinets (with SemiHandmade Shaker fronts), classic appliances, and finishes from local New York designers like Allied Maker, Vonnegut Kraft, Hawkins New York, and more. Here’s a resource guide to recreating the look.
