Stucco Siding + Wooden slats

I found this in Minneapolis. I really like the interaction found between the seamless textured Stucco as it meets the warm, richness of the wood.

Kitchen Cabinets

The kitchen will be eggshell white
(we have the perfect eggshell waiting for color matching)
The cabinets, we have decided, should be an assorted sort found at reclamation centers, craigslist, and alleys. We will paint this sorted sundry Celadon color matched from a Japanese hand thrown vessel. The doors will be replaced and crafted by Hand in Hand Design (a local design firm that we just love) out of Catalpa wood sourced from here in Illinois.
