can you have too much wood?
Hubs and I are in the final stages of building our little dream house in the woods. Brick outside....lots of wood inside...wood plank floors in "butternut", ceilings in light stained ash, and lots of pretty wood trim. Right now everything is just perfect-- but we have a BIG kitchen cab dilemma. We originally wanted quartersawn oak (little darker than med) and soapstone countertops. However, since flooring has been completed... we feel that the wood cabs might turn our rustic scene into something akin to the basement of Noah's ark...or worse, the inside of a coffin. So now we are considering a painted/glazed such as a sage/olive green (trendy?)or glazed off white. (We won't even get into the range hood or island...babysteps.) Would like to keep the soapstone...any ideas, comments would be greatly appreciated.
