Billy suggested “antiqued” copper for the stove hood and for the backs of the glass-front cabinets. The kids excitedly got involved in the process. “They had a blast banging sheets of copper with hammers and spraying them down with different solutions to bring out lots of different hues,” remembers Bee. Surrounding it all are walls of warm golden yellow plaster. “I just kept telling the guys applying the plaster, ‘The messier the better!’ ” she says. “It added so much texture and creates a great deal of warmth.”
