What is your favorite room in your house, and why?

Our recently renovated chefs kitchen. The large black vintage inspired island makes a big statement as soon as you walk in the room. Our kitchen is a testament to the power of black and white. The polished subway tile and classic white cabinets bounce the light back into the room. A few of my favorite upgrades are the nickel finish pull-down faucet, stainless Kitchen-Aid dual dishwasher, subway tile, hanging lanterns by Home Goods, and Travertine flooring by Conejo Hardwoods.
