#5.) Farmhouse kitchens have a vintage appeal. I adore the cabinets in this kitchen because of the glass doors and antique latches. I also like the industrial appeal of the ampersand sign, galvanized metal bar stools and antique drying rack on the island.
This is soapstone. Soapstone is a soft, non-porous, natural stone. Despite its softness, it's some pretty resilient stuff. It is always a dark stone, very nearly black and it always has a honed surface. People who cook love it because it's an excellent heat insulator.
