We made a change of design plan on Monday. I decided I wanted a more open kitchen with fewer cabinets. Instead of the large maple cabinet in the center which would have housed the range hood, we will order a Kobe range hood - it will be visible and I know I will like that better.
The library shelves and desk below are gorgeous. Maple wood, nice and light, airy. I think the warm tones go really well with my green lower cabs and the beautiful paint color.
