I love how serious the hood to the stove is here – also the length of the island is so generous but by having the corners be open shelves it really minimizes the visual weight. and to the left do you notice the full door pantry like cabinet?  I think in the end floor-to-ceiling cabinets (with no counter in the middle) really get some of the most use. Erika from Urban Grace designed the wall of cabinetry in the kitchen below, and ever since I saw it I have been trying to talk my mom into making a similar wall of cabinets in her kitchen.
