Several months ago I had the opportunity to work with a charming couple in Alexandria.  Unlike most couples who ask for a kitchen with  "lighter, airy feeling" this couple was looking for something cozier and warmer, with a rustic feel.  I was please to have selected warmer knotty alder cabinetry  and Ceasar stone tops.   

Since the great room ties into the kitchen we were sensitive to bringing that cozy rustic look to the fireplace surround and built ins.

I think my favorite thing about the space though is the porcelain tile flooring, meant to look like slate (but less maintenance).  I spent nearly 3 hours one morning mixing the colors and layout exactly as I saw fit for this space.

these cabinets themselves}

{Now a Cozy Kitchen and Great Room}

{I like the professional appliances}

{I liked the tile floor so much we used it again at the foyer}
