Less warm and inviting, still-- I love this french country kitchen. the clean blue and white, the sense of space from the cathedral ceiling. i love the blue check and the dark hard wood table and the gorgeous chandelier. i would warm it up with hardwood on the floor and some window treatments. the marble counter tops are beautiful but might be more practical with our pick-soapstone. anyway definitely an inspiration picture.

Last night we came home (late, you can see it's dark) and saw the mat and grid work all in place for the pouring of the "rat slab" (!) or concrete slab in the crawl space. They call it the "rat slab" I guess because one of its functions is to keep rodents from coming up. yuck. Anyway it looked very clean and nice-- so clean and nice and level and all that it passed inspection (our second thus far) and so they are good to pour the concrete today.
hmmm wonder if we'll get home from work in time to carve our initials inconspicuously in our foundation. that would be kinda cool.....
