Natural Home Kitchen of the Year 2007: Something Old, Something New

Using salvaged and sustainable materials, a designer works magic on her own kitchen.

Alinda Morris found the tiles for her backsplash languishing in the corner of her employer's warehouse. "I loved the tiles' depth and variation of color," she says, "but I never could have afforded them at market prices." She soaked the tiles in water, cleaned off the old mortar and installed them in her kitchen.
