like the simple vertical backsplash and sleek hardware (maybe hardware is a smidge too modern). very much like the light countertops with the light cabinets (mine are natural maple but have yellowed a little over 20 years). we have new stainless steel appliances, all stainless steel. microwave and double oven have dark glass.
have been thinking a darker grey/charcoal to paint my island but this white combo with the upper wood cabinets is more similar to how mine would look - doubt white on the bottom would be great for maintenance though. my hubby is very hard on things and likes to eat at the corner. We also need bar chairs, not stools. That could be in a light fabric and still work. Something with a back. He sits at the corner and watches tv when I'm cooking.
