I like the look of the downstairs (not the upstairs) but I think this small house tries to do way too much. The (windowless) kitchen seems to have very little prep space, and as a chef I would argue that very few cooks require such a humongous range (and this tiny galley kitchen would seem inadequate to support it). Eating at the island with the large sink right in front of you would, to me, be unpleasant, and there is no where else to put dirty pots and pans after cooking on all those burners, except to leave them on the stove which you also have to look at. Thankfully the dining room is beautiful, if somewhat wasteful of precious space. In fact, overall the downstairs space program is in my view highly inefficient. The living area and family area are very small. I would give them an A for aesthetics but a C for functionality.

Black,yellow and white go so beautifully to-gether. I also like the flooring and high stools in the kitchen but I find it odd that the sink and eating area are on the same level. A small division wall between the two would have hidden the dirty dishes and made eating there more pleasant.
