Ooh, an even bigger picture!  Yay!  Well, you definitely have to find a good coffee maker for your Peet's.  MikeUK used to find some incredible mini appliances.  I wish I could remember where he got them.

I am so glad you posted a larger picture so we could get a better look at your mastery.  Love your kitchen cabinets and all the detailing on the island is spectacular.  Do you make your own cabinets?  Love the light fixture too, definitely very creative.  You are so talented.

I think it was from this shop

You are absolutely right.  Good memory!  Bummer that they don't have a coffee maker right now.

Keith, I had to turn my head away so as not to short out the keyboard drooling!

Thank you again, it means a lot.  To answer your question, I did make the cabinets and the light.  There just are not a lot of options for modern lights out there...plenty of chandeliers though.

Thank you, I hope to get some daytime pics soon, I fear they’ll be less forgiving.

Project update for those of you interested.   Now that the kitchen is done, I am moving on to the room adjacent to it.  I am calling this room the “Great room” simply because of its size.  If you were to stand outside and face the house, the flow of the rooms would go as follows right to left.  Kitchen-greatroom-entryway-interesting staircase-den/office on the bottom and bedroom above that. 

large.1797A242-3249-43F0-8928-23223607BFlarge.B01F43C7-FDBB-44FA-AC20-75EAB23413

The entrance into the kitchen will have these cabinets and columns made by me. The cabinets are white instead of the grey kitchen color to tie into the great room color scheme. 

The Great room will be mostly white with pops of color here and there.  The space will have an open ceiling with an atrium type sky light at the peak of the roof. 

large.04B65E79-9096-420D-B9FA-043B5ED8E8 

I cut some cardboard to get an idea of what the front windows and roof line would look like.  The rest of the house will be almost the same height as the great room.

 Currently I am working on the entrance and custom door.  I’ve seen a lot of cool doors as I’ve been perusing various resources but it was hard to find one that fit all my criteria.  1- I had to really like it 2- it had to fit the vibe/style of the house 3- it had to challenge my artistic skills but at the same time not be beyond my skill set. 

Long post I know but its been a while since my last update.  I hope to have more as things fall into place...fingers crossed :)

Very nice Keith. I am looking forward to the great room creation. The up coming months are busy ones, so create when you can.

Where did you find that green Kitchenaid mixer?

Yes, I was wondering that same thing!

It’s from an Etsy seller called Global miniatures.

I think you just need to keep practicing.

I am already loving this next room.  I can't wait to see what the door looks like.  Your description of the criteria you used is intriguing.
