McClure Tables
That's a great way to integrate butcher block into a kitchen! If you're looking to add this to your kitchen countertop, you'll like our selection of wood and the custom work we do! Are you looking to use a particular type of wood? Take a look at our butcher block selection on our site > http://bit.ly/1rCvWXx. Then, give Todd McClure a call at 800-565-0977. He'll be able to answer any follow-up questions you might have about the custom work.

Please share the floor stain and finish for this lovely decor. - I am admiring the balance, warmth and detailed charm in this design.
The floors look almost natural without the amber or yellow look, which is lovely. Please share the floor stain and finish (i.e. oil or water based) if possible please. Thanks!

I can't tell for sure, but looking at other pictures of this kitchen, I think this looks like the same fixture. It is the George II Chandelier from Visual Comfort.

I would love to know the wall color in these two rooms. Very soothing

What Houzz contributors are saying:

At first glance these two kitchen islands appear identical. But a closer look reveals different sizes and functions. The butcher block top next to the stone island countertop shows the identity of the foreground island — it's the prep island. (The background island is the breakfast bar.) Kitchen designer Mikal Otten points out that the two islands relate nicely to each other and yet are not too matchy, with each having a specific purpose. He says, "I think this makes a more sophisticated and layered design."
