Am I the only one who uses flannel sheets all year? It's usually cool at night in Seattle, I like open windows, and I run pretty cold. But, even on the hottest nights (we get about a week of 100+ days and 80+ nights) I find a flannel top sheet to be exactly the right weight for cozy but not hot.

I love tile counters, especially vintage (or vintage-looking) ones with contrasting bullnoses on the front. The only downside is that grout is hard to keep fresh-looking. I also like butcher block, stainless and marble when they're used for functional areas, butcher block for chopping, stainless for baking or around the sink, marble for baking. They can also be nice on contrasting kitchen carts. Butcher block and Corian have the advantage that you can knock over a wine glass without breaking it. Granite feels very dated to me.

Interesting. I think of white kitchens as more 2000's and 1990's as cherry or maple with granite... think dot com era Whistler townhouses, with beige burber carpet and wood kitchen floors. I bought my house in 2000, and all the magazines had white kitchens with butcher block or slate counters and farm sinks.
