And here's the other end of the room, kitchen and dining (pardon the handbag, et al on the island). I've done it a little less neutral, used more of the sable and peanut butter to cozy up the space. This shot also captures the dark/black granite on the countertops and the slate tile, from whence I plan to take an ice blue and carry it throughout the house in accent touches -- pillows, rugs and a little paint in the kitchen.
It's a project. And it could all change if I don't like it in the end! :)
