Dream House Alphabet: I

I is for Island
When I think of 'I' words for my future home, many words come to mind: Inviting, Inspiring..oh and ISLAND.
I'm pretty sure its safe to say that I'm not the only one who wants an island in their dream kitchen.
Extra prep space, extra storage space, and a whole lot of extra beauty.

This is my dream kitchen island:
via Rue
Stop drooling long enough for me to explain why I love it:

1. Carrara Marble is a MUST. 
The kitchen cousins broke my heart one episode when they said carrera marble in the kitchen isn't practical due to how easily it stains but pshh, not going to let it stop me! If it waterfalls like this, even better.

2. It is all one level.
I'm not a huge fan of when the part where people sit is bumped up...it seems less crisp and modern to me.

3. There is no stove top.
I'm fairly clumsy and accident prone so I wouldn't want a stove top on there. Also, I want a big fat industrial range and oven so it just wouldn't work.

   What would your "I" be? Do you have any picky island preferences like me? xo

A big fan of the kitchen island. It just makes for a good gathering spot for family and freinds. My must have is that it's just big! And marble wouldn't hurt either :)

That marble is perfect....I agree no stove tops in the island. I like the wood beneath too. Interesting mix. Of course all the light doesn't hurt either.
