Oscar-winning costume designer Jacqueline Duran (she's known for her work on Anna Karenina, Pride & Prejudice, and Atonement) commissioned  Mark Lewis Interior Design  to overhaul her North London kitchen. Her mandate? She wanted to preserve the existing structure while adding a note of modernity. The team repainted the existing wood floors in a checkerboard pattern, lime-washed the antique shutters, and fabricated new faucets made from reclaimed copper piping. Here's a look at the kitchen and where to source its key elements.

Duran requested Carrara marble counters because she likes to make pastry. Photograph by Rory Gardiner for  Mark Lewis Interior Design .
