butcher block counter tops- We used to have one of these in the Dutch Colonial house I grew up in. Real butcher block counter top with cut out for trash underneath. As kids, we thought it was so cool to have it!
I picked this room because of the combination of old and rustic with new and modern. The natural wood beams provide most of the colour in the white room. As a focal point the beams draw the viewers eye up to the ceiling and skylight.
