      Thanks Meredith!!

      Nothing is set in stone, but I always think the 'two finishes can be friends, three's a crowd' mantra works in any space. :)

    Yes I like this kitchen."I would so love color in my Kitchen , I had a fire in my kitchen a few years ago , had to move out to reovate as I could afford to buy supplies and building materials , still 5 years later cann't move back in Oh how I miss my home and kitchen. Cann't really say what color I would like in my kicthen , its all ugly and burned up. Wish I could see passd all that, and visualize what it could look like with some beauitful color."

    Laurie- What about the finish on lighting and hardware in the kitchen. Do lights need to be the same as the pulls and knobs on drawers and cabinets? Where does the faucet finish fall into this? Does the rule of two finishes apply here as well? Oh, and what about the curtain hardware….should that match the lights?…. Since they are kind of close.

    Does the curtains rods have to match with color of the wood tables? What about the wooden table and cabinets ,does it have to have same matching color ?thx

    I think they should be uniform lighting, at least on a per room basis. Rainbow colors in somewhere like the kitchen just doesn't sit well with me.
