Found one more great design blog with all sorts of fun pictures, Desire to Inspire. I love the clean colors in this house and how the sitting area is tied into the kitchen below. I am a huge book nut and found the set-back bookshelves so appealing.
Bookshelves in what looks like a hall? Brilliant. What a great way to take advantage of wasted space, especially by making a mini sitting area or having it next to a family room/library area.
