The gathering place...

I wanted to give an example of an amazing kitchen that just "works".  I was scouring the internet looking for fun, bright and unique styles.  I was sitting at this table, looked up from my computer and realized, I have it right here!  So, this is a quick shot that I just took of my kitchen...the house was built in the 30's and everything is original, except the kitchen.  The previous owners opened it up and made it more modern.  Put in this amazing butcher block table that we've had many fun dinners at.  I think it incorporates the original style with a touch of new.  We took down the shelves and painted, realized that we liked the openess of it and added some of our own touches.  You can see just a bit of the chalk board and the sunflower clock that we purchased from Design Within Reach.
