Sharing My Design Process

We've been in our house for a month now and am proud to say I just unpacked the last box yesterday!  Finally I get to focus on decorating!  Our first project and biggest project will be our living/dining/kitchen.  Our main level is open concept.

I know some people love the look of wood and I like it in small doses but the cabinets are just not working for me.  If you notice there is no backsplash and the…
