Farmhouse kitchen with cathedral sky lights

We all feel it when we walk into a room for the first time and it catches our breath. It’s called “wow factor”…and boy, does this room holler Wow! With cathedral sky high, celestial lighted ceilings and warm hardwood floors, we’re just getting started. If you look closely, you’ll notice how elements of the forest are meticulously placed on just about every surface: an entire wall covered in stone that surrounds the stove and oven, reclaimed wood paneled walls, and an endless number of windows that invite in nature’s light, as well as its towering trees. This is certainly a man-friendly kitchen with two chunky wood islands, dark cabinetry and leather dining chairs. That’s just fine with me. I’d love to relax and watch my husband cook me dinner in this space. Then I’d really say “Wow!”
