I love the amount of counter space I have and plenty of floor space so that several people can be in the kitchen at once and not feel to tight.
Here is my island that I just love and know that this is probably going to be the busiest counter in my kitchen. Plus when I stand there I can still look into the living room and see everything that is going on or talk with Scott.
Here is my entry way and some of the colors I choose to paint there. You can't see it very well in this picture but I bought the Ralph Loren paint that is called River rock so it has texture to it. My walls might have looked a little bit better if I sanded them smooth like they suggest but I think that they still look nice even if I didn't do that.
I love my house so far and can't wait to get into it. We are getting down to the wire so I will probably have several posts with pictures of our house for our friends and family who are far away and we can't take them on a personal tour.
