Loving these floors. A dark floor creates such depth and makes a space feel larger due to the floor "disappearing". This feels so expansive and much like our own Chippmunk kitchen with dark ebony floors and white walls/counters.
Brick would also look great for the walkway. Country Casual by Ginkgo Leaf Studio Wisconsin Landscape Contractors Association - 2013 Silver Award for Excellence in Residential Landscape Design and Construction.
