Featuring: Suzanne Dimma

Suzanne Dimma reveals how to mix modern materials with warm rustic touches as she tours H&H executive editor Beth Hitchcock’s renovated kitchen. Designer Stacy Begg worked with Beth to plan her dream kitchen, complete with a wall of old-world style tiles, a new functional layout, brass hardware that will tarnish over time, and butcherblock counters paired with a contemporary marble island.

See more photos of this kitchen in our February 2012 issue.
