Sticking to her clean and simple vision, Lindsey chose an airy gray-and-white color palette that wouldn’t tire. Fresh coats of gray paint and shiny new chrome hardware unified all of the cabinetry, but the real star is a glass tile backsplash in a chevron pattern. She invested in durable, high-quality white quartz countertops; dark, easy-to-mop hardwood floors; and a new tongue-and-groove ceiling with a grid of six chrome lights—all materials that will hold up well over time. Having saved in other areas, Lindsey (a great cook and frequent entertainer) splurged on a new collection of high-quality stainless steel Thermador appliances.
