Get inspired by this inviting kitchen with graphic soapstone countertops. Designer Ines Mazzotta of Kelly Hopter Interiors renovated the space in just six weeks using a black and white palette and wood accents for warmth (think: a stunning Indonesian rosewood armoire from Kijiji). See how glazed white tiles give an airy, hand-made touch to the vent hood, and a galvanized iron pendant adds a hit of metallic shimmer. The pièce de résistance is an apron-front soapstone sink with subtle veining.
