Go Green

The playful preppiness of this grass-green gingham ceiling made it an instant favorite. “I love to cook, so kitchens are the first thing I drool over in any of the homes we feature. I don't know if it's the wallpapered ceiling, the spacious island, or the fun assortment of mismatched plates, but this one instantly drew me in. I could picture myself cooking here for hours with a cup of espresso or a glass of wine nearby.”  –Marisa Spyker Associate Features Editor
