Steal This Look: Romantic Outdoor Kitchen in Puglia

Barebones style: we’ve stumbled upon this utilitarian yet romantic outdoor kitchen in Puglia, a renovation project of Elia Mangia Design Studio. We’ve sourced the elements to recreate the look:

Above: The outdoor kitchen is sited in a renovated trullo, a style of stone hut native to the region.

Above: The ingredients are truly simple, but admittedly the white Mediterranean walls add a certain charm. 

Above: A tabletop stove is the easiest outdoor cooking solution. A Nexgrill 2-Burner Table Top Gas Grill is $99 at Amazon.

Above: We like the utility tub used as an outdoor sink; a Black Plastic Utility Tub is $18.75 from Midland Hardware.

Above: In the right setting, even a plain orange extension cord looks like a design element. A 25-Foot Outdoor Extension Cord is $11.99 on Amazon.

Above: In case the string lights hanging from the olive trees fail to provide enough light, a Bayco 18W Fluorescent Work Light is $19.97 at Walmart.

Above: Ubiquitous in Italian kitchens, indoors and out: the Bialetti stovetop espresso maker. A 3-cup Bialetti Moka Express is $26.94 on Amazon.

Above: Any cutting board will do, but some are nicer than others.  A Raw Wood Board is $39 from West Elm.

Above: A Wood-Handled Wok is $9.38 from KitchenInspire.
