This kitchen is maybe a bit fancy for my taste but there are a few things I'd like to point out about it. First, look at the armchairs adjacent the island. Maybe it's because I often feel isolated while I'm cooking, but I'd love for my husband or a friend to be able to settle in next to me while I'm working. And somehow it feels more comfortable to sit in armchairs than at a bar. With kids in the house, the armchairs would probably need to be slip covered, but still, it's a beautiful idea.
Second, I love how the coffee bar is separated from the rest of the kitchen. No need to interrupt what's going on in the cooking area to pour yourself another cup while lazily reading the paper in those armchairs.
Third, if the floor of the kitchen were stone or tile, it would feel a lot less warm and inviting to sit in the armchairs, so I think the choice of hardwood is perfect for the space.
Another one to tuck away into the files of "someday kitchen."
Hope you've had a good start to your week, Everyone.
