Steal This Look: A Vintage-Inspired Pink and Green Kitchen in the Netherlands
When Dutch couple Arianne and Derk Bonthuis renovated an 1893 estate in Haarlem, their “vintage-Scandinavian” style translated into an open kitchen of pink tile and green cabinet fronts (an Ikea hack). Here, we profile sources for the main elements that pull the look together.Above: The former kitchen was smaller and more closed off to the rest of the house. The couple opened up the kitchen area and centered it around a large functional island.
