Turned-Back Clock: After

Many an older home loses its charm once you set foot in the kitchen. Details lost in an effort to modernize turn into holy grails for owners down the line. For Sharon Lovejoy and Jeff Prostovich, turning back the clock in the cook space of their 1930s house, in San Luis Obispo, California started with a couple of lucky shopping finds.

Shown: The redesign evolved around two vintage pieces: a farm sink patented in 1923 and a 1950s-era O'Keefe & Merritt six-burner range. Open shelves turn everyday dishes into an artful display.
