i could see where this would work, but it's not a necessity. i'd call it a luxury item, personally. great, yes. beautiful, yes. necessary, no.


Two Islands in the Kitchen: Do or Don't?

My parents just moved last May...so I ended up with pretty much everything from my old room. They downsized from a 4 bedroom to a 2 bedroom and it all had to go for the most part!

I still feel at "home" where they moved to, because they actually ended up moving into the house my husband purchased (before we were married) and lived in right after he graduated from college. It's a small world.

Nice to see a lot of Kansan's on here! Hello from Wichita! The train really is crazy loud here, we're in East Front and can hear it most nights, even with the windows closed. I love the kitchen! I'd love to see more, I'm calling for a full house tour, please!

We're in Kansas (and today it's going to be 105!) and we used the blow in cellulose from Lowe's (GreenFiber) and it works great. We also installed an attic fan, which is nice, but we want to eventually do a whole house fan. The attic fan just isn't quite enough for how hot it gets here...and we don't have central air upstairs, which is where the bedrooms are in our house.

I agree with some of the statements above, I think a slate would look great. However, since slate is a relatively soft stone and tends to split/flake, I'd go with a slate-look ceramic with a black, blue-grey and green movement in it.

I LOVE the look of the green tile!

at home, i keep my mac neat and tidy and hardly have any icons at all. at work, i have a dual screen and due to the nature of our work (architecture) we have multiple versions of multiple drawing programs, so i have to keep those on my desktop in order to open the right drawings in the right program. so, i have one screen covered with program shortcuts and one screen that is completely empty!

oooh! i love this! i won some free tile at an industry event and i'm doing a similar pattern to this! it's an 8" x 20" in a high gloss light grey and now i can't WAIT to see it all installed! it will make living through the demolition that much sweeter.
