Before I get down to the post I want to thank Kristi at Addicted to Design for the free Premier Listing in their Interior Designer Directory.  I also want to congratulate my friend Paula Grace of Paula Grace Designs for being chosen by the Washington Post's Blog Watch.

Now down to business.  Today I was in communication with a new client who is in the process of building a new home.  We were discussing cabinetry for the kitchen.  Like another very recent post I did on this same topic, she wasn't convinced to mix her cabinet finishes.  The kitchen is very large and has a really nice size island.  She asked me to send her some pics to illustrate this for her.  So here are the pics I sent.
