Here's the bar stools/counter stools we bought from Restoration Hardware (I looove this store but can't afford most things in it, but these babies were only about $159.00 each after tax and delivery which is good for a bar stool, and it's solid wood) We bought 4 counter stools for the new island and 3 bar for the overhang into the morning room. The color is called "burnt oak" which will look nice against the dark floors and cabinets and not be too harsh of a contrast.
Here's our chandelier, which my husband actually picked out! He loved it, which I was afraid he wasn't going to! I can't wait to see it in person, it's being delivered Friday, it was an overstock.com find and I had a coupon! It was very affordable and has that Restoration Hardware vibe, but the chrome finish gives it a more modern glam look and less visual weight.
And here is our back splash, it's just a simple honed marble brick pattern, but I'm going to do a dove grey grout to give it some contrast! I can't wait to see it all together and to post pics! I really think after it's all done, our kitchen will be unique and look more custom, and I did it for less than I would have if we had gone with Ryan's optional upgrades. Still wishing I could have gone with white cabinets though... sigh... maybe someday
