Built-in bookcase for cookbooks! I just want built in bookcases in every room for books! I'll carry a book from one room to another and have a dedicated shelf for my current read. Although, having dedicated space for cookbooks is smart, too.
Love the idea of backing up a banquette/kitchen table to one side of the kitchen island. This is the Siller/Hokanson house featured in Houston Luxe magazine. Thanks to Joni Webb of Cote de Texas for posting the picture!
