Lovely! A friend of mine commented that after visiting the Julia Child kitchen at the Smithsonian, she realized her kitchen is a workshop and has set it up to be a workshop. Her kitchen is tiny--she's taken the pans out of the cupboards and those are now on the fridge. She's also moved her small appliances to a bookcase in the kitchen so she has more counter space.

Thanks so much for all the lovely comments from each of you. It's been a very long time coming to get the dream kitchen of my life. Not fancy, but just right for us and the way we live.

The counter tops are an art piece in their own right. Nothing wrong with have art in the kitchen. And the cabinets? More art work. Do you take in borders? If so I am on my way. I will just stand in the kitchen everyday and admire it. As your signature states, "The kitchen is a moment that takes your breath away.

I love the look of them too Addie. Here's another shot of the breakfast bar top.

To me Kay, the dark streaks make the whole top look as if it is all a flowing river. The same for the piece at the sink counter. Each piece compliments the other. It is hard to get two pieces that match so well. Absolutely beautiful. And the lighter color of the counters matches perfectly with the darker cabinets. I have the feeling you will spend more time in your kitchen.
