Ever since Julie first took a tour of San Francisco designer Charles de Lisle‘s reclaimed retreat in Sonoma (see: Off the Grid: A Trendy, Low-Affect Retreat in Sonoma by Charles de Lisle), we’ve been admiring the way it manages to be concurrently low-impact on the earth and excessive on type—placing to mattress any notions that the eco-conscious can’t be aesthetically interesting.

As we speak we’re taking a better take a look at de Lisle’s kitchen, made fully from salvaged standalone items. Taken alone, every half—an outdated laundry sink, a reclaimed work desk—won’t seem to be a lot. However with de Lisle’s discerning eye they’re remodeled into one thing contemporary and environment friendly.
