Ava Gene’s

This Italian eatery on SE Division is known for their Roman inspired menu.

Stealable Idea #1: Open Shelving over Subway Tile

These open shelves with dark brackets against the white subway tile are simple and classic.

Another simple and classy application of open shelving, jazzed up with brass brackets. Design by Kristyn Bester.

Some of our favorite shelving options are the Floyd Shelf and live edge shelving from Salvage Works, complemented with these industrial brackets from Rejuvenation. Our go-to subway tile is the Rittenhouse Square from Daltile.

Stealable Idea #2: Wine Bar

These wine coolers were cleverly hidden behind beautiful cabinetry with a marble counter.

This otherwise empty wall space was utilized by adding a bar, complete with an integrated wine cooler and storage for bar items. Design by Anne De Wolf.

Sub-Zero has a range of integrated wine coolers and Versatile Wood Products can fulfill your cabinetry needs.

Little T Bakers

A rustic-chic bakery offering artisanal bread and pastries.

Stealable Idea #1: Stainless Steel Counter

We love the durability of stainless steel counters and the modern loft-like vibe they produce.

The stainless steel counters in this art studio are versatile and balanced by warm wood tones. Design by Anne De Wolf.

We recommend Metal Supermarkets or Hanset Stainless for all of your steel needs.

Stealable Idea #2: Glass Subway Tile & Stainless Steel Backsplash

We love the durability of stainless steel against the sleekness of stacked glass tile.


The stacked glass tile and stainless steel range and hood are focal points in this kitchen. Design by Anne De Wolf.

One of our favorite stackable glass tiles is the Ann Sacks Lucian field tile.

Which style would you steal? Pick one and tell us in the comments!

  1. I love the stainless and the sleek tile but can’t like anything better than Rome and that Italian feel. Dark wood, wine and strong materials… Those Italian’s are so romantic and stylish and rich.
