Cathedral ceilings

I have been reviewing with my builders that I would like a cathedral ceiling in both the kitchen and the master bedroom. Currently the kitchen has a gable that can be uncovered and insulated. The master bedroom one will be built. Sheet beadboard will be put up the gable - a bit cottage-y but I think appropriate for a farmhouse too.

This is a great way to create a sense of soothing, soaring space even in rooms that aren't that big!

The first kitchen you show is like my ideal kitchen: cooktop on the island (as opposed to sink), banquette (though I would not do that AND a bench -- would have chairs opposite the banquette side), and then a sitting area -- all connected. I cannot wait for you to cook me a bit Italian dinner in your kitchen!
