We actually bumped this out an additional 18inches which gave me more space for the island.
I tried really hard to incorporate this fireplace into the house because it was so quirky. In the end it just ended up being weird (its a fine line) so we covered it up.
Sorry if you are getting dizzy. The pictures are from opposite ends of the room and the kitchen isn't on the original side anymore. I am really happy with the white floating glass refrigerator. I think it was a good decision. I never have to wipe it off because it doesn't show anything and the room needs as much white as possible to make the cabinets (which are gray) pop rather than feel dreary.
I love the way this white beveled subway tile catches the light but I am not crazy about the glass mosaic accent piece. Everything about the kitchen is quiet and restrained. This is too chaotic for me in here. I am afraid it has to go but we will see if I get the energy for that.
I am enjoying having a big farmhouse sink! The more white the better and the more sink the better.
