Cottage kitchen with rustic wood beams layered over white plank ceiling. Pair of iron carriage lanterns over white marble top kitchen island. Kitchen opens to dining room and family room. Looks like opening from kitchen to great room at Cordova

I love the box beam ceiling in this kitchen with white cabinets. I also like the thick marble countertops, and the cut of the corners of the counters and island. I wish I knew what the island's countertop was made of.

Rustic + Turquoise = <3

Love this kitchen island!
