I love this kitchen design because it is so unique. It actually looks like it has a somewhat angled ceiling, which makes it feel both spacious and comfy. The beam on the ceiling is very cool, and adds a nice rustic flavor to the design. The island is great because it works both for sitting and for prepping meals. I think we even have a fireplace in the brick there, which elevates this spot to very comfortable and cozy. This is the kind of kitchen I want to be in during the winter. It is unique, warm, and very accessible.
