  1. Jamie, looking at those light fixtures made me think of how far kitchens have come from the typical recessed canned light over the kitchen sink to making a design statement by adding an interesting chandelier or light fixture over the sink.

  2. ... And even further from those hideous flourescent light boxes before them!

  3. Lee Valley Hardware! www.leevalley.com I love them for cheap hardware in secondary rooms (and sometimes primaries --don't tell) as well as super reasonable after market cabinet upgrades. Their catalog is ENORMOUS, a visit to their website is good for at least an hour's meandering.

  4. Love those copper canisters -- I might have to buy one in each size!! The oil rubbed bronze faucet is great. I've had my eye on one of those for a while. And the GelPro mat looks soft and cushy :-)
