Remodel: Bring in the Light

"Live in rooms full of light." ~ Cornelius Celsus

Before

Inspiration
I tore this page from a magazine pre-blogging days so I don't have a source to credit.
Any ideas?

After

Unfortunately, we didn't have the ceiling height or room depth to do either the arch or the bar. But I wanted the 1/2 wall so as much light as possible would fill the room. The door to the mudroom has a frosted glass panel which allows even more light. (Someday...soon...I will paint the trim)

Wall color-Yolo paint-Grain 01 (Yolo paint has zero VOCs)
Flooring-EcoTimber, solid bamboo, vertical grain, Amber
