    I missed the live discussion last night, so I didn’t get to ask how close the table and desk are. The desk space is nicely proportioned and placed and I wondered if the dining area still feels separate or more integrated.
    (BTW, believe it or not, I’m living with that exact same sink in the ensuite bath–it was used when it was installed here, before me. I know, it’s sad, but the beauty is still very usable!)

    Hi Terri – I did miss your question – sorry about that!! The table and desk are about 5 or 6 feet away from each other. It’s interesting in this project that the addition of that wall with the flue in it makes the dining area feel more a part of the kitchen and the living space is more formal. As far as the sink goes….I don’t mind these 60′s style sinks….even the salmon color is intriguing!

    Thanks for your answer! On the plan it looked like a closer distance but the photos seemed to suggest otherwise. As for my lovely sink, I think it’s more of a dusty rose colour. It may have been called “shell pink” back in the day. The chrome edge is kinda cool, and it’s still in excellent shape, so I’ve gone with chrome light fixture and towel ring, etc. The cabinetry is dark oak, so no white provincial frou-frou look.;)
