Pink and Green Color Kitchen Remodel in East London

Danish-American couple Catherine and Toke Nygaard have moved from California to a Victorian home in east London. Their renovation, by Mike Tuck Studio, includes the ultimate Scandi-meets-Brit kitchen featuring simple English cabinetry, Dinesen floors, modern British craft furniture, and an unexpected color scheme (pink and green). The whole look works so well, it’s contagious: all of us at Remodelista are taking note. Here’s a list of the key kitchen items, right down to each fixture (there are a lot of them) and accessory.
