The Property Brothers Show Off Their Grandest Kitchen Upgrades


“Property Brothers” stars Drew and Jonathan Scott are at it again! On this season of “Brother vs. Brother,” they’re competing to see who can renovate the better home in Los Angeles. And in the latest episode, they’re facing off over (arguably) the most important part of the house: the kitchen.

In the episode “A Tale of Two Kitchens,” a lot is on the line. Drew hasn’t won a single kitchen challenge in all six seasons of “Brother vs. Brother,” so he’s determined to get lucky with No. 7.


However, his plans may be dashed since Jonathan has plans for some show-stopping features, including a custom barrel ceiling and double kitchen islands.

It’s up to judges Maureen McCormick and Dan Vickery from the HGTV show “Frozen in Time” to decide which brother’s kitchen and dining space is better—and they have a tough

Architect: Frank Lloyd Wright

Specs: 3 beds, 3 baths, 3,095 square feet, 1.32 acres

Price: $7,950,000

Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright just before his death in 1959, the house commissioned by Norman and Aimee Lykes in the suburbs north of Phoenix was ultimately built in 1967 by Wright’s apprentice, John Rattenbury.

Sometimes referred to as the “Circular Sun House” and one of only 14 circular residences by Wright, the home is a perfect example of Wright’s curvy, late-career style (also see: the Guggenheim). From above, the desert mountain structure and its crescent-shaped pool look like a set of intricate clock gears (Wright credited the curving ridge lines of the surrounding hills as his inspiration).

The curves continue inside, with sloping walls clad in golden-hued Philippine mahogany, circular and semicircular windows, custom built-ins, and original Wright–designed furniture. The kitchen counters

The Material Pairing That Gives Jessica Alba’s Kitchen Its Luxe Feel

When you want your kitchen to look especially elevated, you can’t go wrong with a zellige tile. We’ve oven sung the praises of this Morocco-originated material since noticing its increasing popularity last year. More recently, however, another covetable celebrity kitchen proves that this backsplash idea can do no wrong, especially when paired with a chic metallic contrast.

In a photo she shared of her 12-year-old daughter, Honor, Jessica Alba gives a glimpse at her simple yet refined cooking space by Clements Design. Glossy white zellige tiles stretch from counter to ceiling, and above her Lacanche range is a wide brass hood. These two design elements might look sleek on their own, but together they make a more dramatic statement (which complements her simple marble countertops and Farrow & Ball Down Pipe–painted cabinets rather nicely).

This design idea isn’t limited to massive interiors, even if Alba’s kitchen is on the larger

This Kitchen Makeover Makes the Case for Bold Color Blocking

AFTER: The mint green wall balances the deep tones of the teal cabinets and the yellow shine of the brass backsplash and hardware.

So Camille and Carole set about reorganizing the space, focusing on relocating elements and circulation so that their client’s living-dining-cooking spaces flowed better and centered around an unexpected multifunctional feature: “two back-to-back benches, one for the dining table and the other for the living room,” says Camille. By placing the bench so that it serves both the kitchen/dining and living rooms, it also acts as a de facto divider between the two spaces. To further delineate this separation, they placed a partition with clear glass and a black frame that stretched from the top of the bench to the underside of the ceiling. The glass partition was a specific request from the client, drawing the eye up to the high ceiling while still maintaining views across the

Braun’s aesthetics come to life in this chair design!

When Dieter Rams said “Good design is as little design as possible” – these words became the holy grail that every industrial designer would swear by. While the Braun legacy covers electrical appliances with its distinctive design language, designer Nikhil Kapoor wanted to bring that language to the world of furniture design – giving birth to the Braun Chair!

The first thing that catches my attention while looking at the chair is the simplistic nature of the design – reducing the essence of a chair to an almost z-shaped curve! The backrest of the chair uses a grill-based pattern to allow for ventilation while paying homage to the speaker grill’s widely used in Rams’ designs for radios, clocks, and kitchen appliances making them quietly understandable and agreeable. Keeping in tune with the philosophy, there are seemingly modest elements that uplift the chair – one such is the use of a

Terence Conran, British tastemaker who popularized modern design, dies at 88

A restless entrepreneur with a sometimes volatile personality, he took his ideas around the world and once owned an empire of 90 stores with annual revenue of more than $2 billion. Calling himself a “hard-working hedonist,” he opened more than 50 restaurants, wrote more than 40 books, ran a design studio and later an architecture and urban planning firm.

All of it was built on the simple idea that good design leads to better living.

“No one has done more to change the way that Britain looks, or the way we look at things,” Deyan Sudjic, the onetime director of London’s Design Museum — another of Mr. Conran’s creations — told the Telegraph newspaper in 2011. “He’s changed the way our living rooms look, what we cook, where we go on holiday, our restaurant habits. . . . His influence has been enormous.”

Mr. Conran died Sept. 12 at Barton
