one trend i have been seeing a lot of lately is
wood countertops in kitchens,
a look that i personally adore.
i love a dose of wood in a kitchen, and i think
it works equally well on floors and on countertops.
they look especially at home in a white kitchen.
examine the evidence:
softer countertops, like soapstone and wood
will acquire a wonderful patina
over the years.
yes, they will get dinged,
and scratched and dented,
but that's all part of the charm!
(plus, all the little dents and scratches will
hopefully have a fun memory attached to them!
