Outlook: Grey

I'm a pushover for dark woods with an assertive grain. No doubt that's why this photo made it into my files in the first place. Although its cabinetry still appeals to me, I've now got a few reservations about other aspects of the room. The concrete-like wall treatment stretches the materials palette too far. Working at the under-lit, wall-bound sink threatens to be a rather depressing experience. And commercial-style range hoods are just over, for me. Perhaps my disillusion is rooted in the still-overcast weather we've been enduring. bakesandcompany.com
