I love your design work! I have been to your website many times. I am building a house and our kitchen will be very similar to this one . I would greatly appreciate your opinion as to whether I do the Island in black or in white. We are thinking of a honed absolute black counter on the perimeter and a white granite or quartzite on the Island or maybe white on both. The house is "contemporary farmhouse " in style. White batten board running vertically on the outside with a black shiny front door and black shigle roof. We are going for a very clean monochromatic look. Your kitchen looks awesome but we will have only one Isalnd. It will have three or four barstools. The pulls on the cabinetry will be the long stainless rod pulls. Our kichen opens up completely to the family room. The kithen is essentially one long wall with a very short wall on the right and a long Island. WE will have white cabinets on the perimeter , long flat white subway tiles ( a bit longer than usual) running to the ceiling and a few cabinets with glass inserts on the upper, a range against the wall with a stainless steel hood and floating stainless shelves . Not many upper cabinets as there will also be a large window over a 36 inch gray enamel farmhouse sink. Opposite this wall and Island is the family room and the far wall will have a contemporary linear gas fireplace with black stones instead of logs. Hope this wasn't to much. I would love to hear your thoughts!
