This is the computer generated expression of my new kitchen. Except the walls will be celadon and the counter tops will be a mossy green tweed, and the floor will be Mayflower red clay tile. And the window in my kitchen is much bigger -- it comes down level with the counter top. And I will have a much cooler faucet. And lots more light -- 10 can lights in the ceiling.
Oh -- and how can I forget this -- the big blank space below will be a 5' x 8' panel of stainless steal pegboard. (Yeah. Me likey.) The big-box kitchen designer/cabinet saleswoman (who we really, really liked) didn't have a "stainless steal pegboard" option in their graphics program, so you'll have to imagine it.
I feel like the space needs a Laughing Buddha. What do you think? Maybe a foot or two foot tall statue in the corner by the fridge? Or a 12" tall to the left of the stove?
