I love this floor plan -mjc.Here's another example of the use of subtle shifts in color from room to room. The walls of the family room (through the arch) are simply a darker shade of a similar color in the kitchen and dining room.
love the wood beam ceiling, open kitchen, amazing counter space, huge island with spacious seating. I want my kitchen to have dark brown cherry cabinets so that would look SO good with the wood beams on the ceiling!
They did a great job pulling off the open living space concept, while also clearly defining the different spaces with the arches and differing ceiling heights. I would love to open my living room and kitchen like this.
