Love the functionality of this island. It's the right width for the kitchen we are building as well. We don't want an island the size of a small bus. We have that now, and it becomes a dumping ground for mail and everything that we are too lazy to take where it belongs. Medium size and multi-functional is what we want. My island will either be Farmhouse Red with a vintage finish or bright Royal Blue - with either granite or soapstone countertops. Could be a butcherblock top on the island _haven't ruled that out. Need to find butcherblock that I like before I will consider it.
I love everything I see in this pic. The cabinet colors, the layout, the ceiling and the floors. Really digging the soapstone countertops. The more I see them in pics, the more I love them. They contrast very nicely with that cabinet color. Especially if we do the ceiling like that and it's painted the same color as the cabinets. We will need a sharp contrast somewhere to break it up.
This sunroom makes me happy every time I see this picture. I believe I have decided on this style. I like the ceiling material, the brick and german schmeer finish on the fireplace, and the hearth wide enough to sit on is a MUST. Also, really like the wood trim on the doors, but maybe not so dark?
