I love the play of wood vs. metal in this Kitchen. It has a very industrial feel from the table, light fixtures and chairs, but adding hits of wood on the floor, cabinets, and ceiling brings warmth into the space.
Open loft living area one side, closed bedroom other side? I like the open beams, but I wonder if they only look so good because of the extreme white everywhere else? I also think I like the idea of the loft being over the entrance.
