A love for Pattern

"In the kitchen — admittedly one of the founder's favorite spaces — Shahid opts for a wall-spanning, ornate blue tile, a classic pendant light, denim blue cabinetry, and a central kitchen island. The signature Our Place Always Pan — in a peach-toned terracotta — sits on top of the stove, conveniently within reach.
"I love that the kitchen faces the dining area and the living room, so you always feel connected while you’re in there," explains Shahid. "The kitchen is always the heart of a home, but even more so for two cookware entrepreneurs."
When it came to dressing up the space, the couple enlisted the help of Los Angeles-based designer and Motif Interiors founder Chanel Levya, to bring warmth and personality to their sprawling five-bedroom home.
"Chanel convinced us to make some bold, irreversible moves," notes Shahid, of the interior design process. "We painted many of the wooden beams on our ceilings white. While we were initially nervous about tampering with the structure of the house, Chanel was right. It made the whole room look that much more open and bright."
