Hi there,
The island here is a little more than 10' x 8'. The kitchen it sits in is about 22' by 28'. Hope that helps!

Love the casual look and feel of this kitchen. Beautiful mix of traditional and non-trad elements . . like the lights. What did you hang the island pendants from in the skylight? Is there a ceiling that isn't visible?

From a lighting perspective, choose a small bulb that twinkles to set off the glass features in the store. Warm white will appear more yellowish like traditional incandescent lights, or pure white will give a brighter white color.

Warm White:
Pure White:

Or look at a non-traditional shaped Christmas light like smooth globe lights, which give off a soft diffused light and are not bright but more of an accent.

Would the skylights work in winter climate?

I have a traditional kitchen with hardwood floors. I'm replacing the white tile on the island with whitish marble & painting the cupboards white. Should I get SS or white appliances?

Your kitchen is beautiful. Panel ready for refrig. is a good idea-it's what I have now & because there are 2 of them in the kitchen all that SS might be too much.

I have two appliances with panel ready dishwasher and fridge. The others (double ovens, warming drawer, range top) are in SS. I can't say I feel an overpowering of SS. It feels warm and homey.

This looks like it could be a Cherry butcher block counter.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to 12 Creative Ideas for Decorating Above the Cabinets
When similar objects such as these fabulous baskets are grouped, they have a much bigger impact than if a lot of very dissimilar objects are used. It reminds me of the rules of landscaping that say using a lot of one particular flower creates a much greater impact than than you'd get if you used just a few of many different flowers. It really is fascinating how much landscaping and decorating have in common.
Erin Lang Norris added this to How to Become Friends With the Kitchen Again
Illuminate your cabinets. While adding lights to every single cabinet may be out of the question, it's still something you can add to a single corner cabinet that has been switched out with one made of glass. It provides a warm, ambient glow that light both your mood and your beautiful dishes.
Lindsey M. Roberts added this to Boost Your Energy With Natural Light
When you're thinking about maximizing natural light, also consider minimizing fluorescent light — especially in kitchens. If you're a stay-at-home mom or dad and spend a lot of time in the most-used room of the house, you want to make sure that your body can stay in tune with its biological clock. Being out of sync can mean fatigue, depression or what The Washington Post calls a months-long case of jet lag.

I like the peach. Our kitchen looks mostly peach now, and I'm thinking of going blue in there. This would be an nice touch of peach, maybe something softer, to go in the blue and white kitchen.
