Starting where I left off, next to the double ovens is the coffee station, the stove with microwave over it, then the part of the counter with knives, spoon rest and fresh fruit basket. We installed the slate tile back splash in January. Well the Mister did I was just the helper. He did an awesome job. I stacked the tiles the way I wanted them laid and he laid them up. This was actually a small tile job compared to the first one we did. In our last home we gutted the master bathroom and started from scratch, including rebuilding the shower. I am a lucky lady to have a husband that is not only a sweetheart but a great "handy man". When I say "we" it means he did it, I was the helper. : ) This picture really shows all the beautiful colors in the slate. It makes me smile every time I look at all the colors.
Next we come to the corner sink. I love this area so much - on one side it looks out over our back yard to the green space and the other has a great view of the neighbors flowers. My Mom made the curtains for me - yes my signature red. The pendent light I got last month from Ballard's. We have the recessed lights in the kitchen, I really wanted pendents over the island also, but the lights don't line up over the island right. We added this new black sink and oil rubbed bronze faucet when we added the granite. By the faucet I have my PB pitcher. I love, love this piece. It usually has fresh flowers in it, but not today. Does anyone else have any of the dishes from this set? I want to order a setting for 8, but so far have been able to talk myself out of it, but it is just a matter of time before it's mine!
Coming around the sink is the largest counter space which is about 12 feet. On this side I have my toaster oven, which I use daily or it would be put away, then some canisters, a very cute tea pot lamp then some wine inspired decor.
Here is the cute little tea pot lamp, it was a gift from my Mom years ago. Still love it.
Between the island and the back of the couch in the family room is the breakfast table.
Under the table I have this indoor/outdoor rug. I ordered in on line, which I was a bit concerned about not being able to feel it. I read all the reviews and everyone agreed it was soft. I was pleasantly surprised that it did not feel rough at all, very soft.
