Kitchens are one of my favorite areas of the home! Mainly because I love to cook but also because a nice kitchen is bliss! Like this one featured below, it is gorgeous!! The lantern style hanging lights, the granite counter tops, the detailed white cabinets and the beams in the ceiling(you can see them in the upper right hand corner). I’m a huge fan of homes that flaunt their beams! 🙂 It adds character and shows craftsmanship… But on to the good stuff! What really draws my attention in this room is the custom range hood and back splash. These are truly the center pieces of this kitchen!! Handcrafted and stunning, they bring dexterity and exceptional taste together, that can only be created by someone who is truly passionate about their work and your home. I am a huge fan of his work and actually lucky enough to have met the incredibly talented designer, Ara Mironyuk(www.artbyara.com), who created these pieces(and many, many more!) and they are spectacular!
