Looking for photos of header/post combinations in older houses
I'm interested in seeing pictures of kitchens in older homes where a wall has been removed and a large header has been installed, or a smaller header with a post (or posts), with an island in the middle of the kitchen, to get ideas as to how to integrate a post/posts into the island design. We are in the process of opening up a wall and I can picture either a post on one end of the island or posts on either side of the island (so it's like a picture frame around the island), and I've seen photos of posts in more modern kitchens, but not that many in older houses like our brownstone where a lot of the details have been retained like the tin ceilings, hardwood floors and classic trim. I'm thinking of going for columns that mimic the trim we're losing a bit of, to tie the room together. Any thoughts/pics welcome.
