Shop The Room: Camera-Ready Kitchen

by Melissa Goldstein
There's something about this pitched-roof kitchen that makes us feel like we're on the Swedish version of The Truman Show--maybe it's the clean, variegated neutral palette combined with a cluster of sound stage-looking lights. If you're also crazy for this spotlight-friendly look, follow our finer points below to recreate it at home. LET IT SHOW: Highlight industrial-style lighting that leaves nothing to the imagination: Schoolhouse Electric's Factory Light No. 6 leaves everything exposed, adding a sense of behind-the-scenes excitement. It also allows you to choose the length of the cable, so hang the lights a tad lower--but out of head-bumping danger--to elevate the theatrical feel. STACK IT UP: Even if you're not blessed with a soaring A-frame, install shelves so that they ascend vertically and close to the ceiling to accentuate the height you do have. MAKE A MODERN CLASSIC: Contrast contemporary permanent fixtures and appliances with iconic examples of design, such as Michael Thonet's Era Armchair. Then throw in a raw material with history--a marble backsplash perhaps--to tie things together. shop-look
