love the openess between the two areas, the entertainment center built-ins and fireplace and the beamed vaulted ceiling. Exposed beams with vaulted ceilings. Basically everything except I'd put a gas stovetop where the sink is
I hate when the cords make your couch stick out and not flat against the wall. ~ If you ever build or remodel - use recessed outlets so that the plugs don't stick out from the wall. This allows furniture to be flat against the wall.
