We had ServiceMaster at our East side Northfield new home project yesterday cleaning and polishing. They do a fine job making sure the home is in move in condition for the owners.

100_3648 It really struck me how nice and light the home is. Even100_3660 with cloudy skies and drizzle yesterday the house had a very warm feeling. Some areas, such as the staircase, are flooded with light creating an interplay of shadows and designs on the balusters. Other areas, such as the eating nook, create a real cozy feeling.

100_3658 The kitchen incorporates honed black granite100_3657 countertop work areas. Most of the granite countertops we install is polished. This honed surface doesn’t reflect light and creates a softer appearance. The honed dark granite creates a nice contrast with the lighter bamboo countertop used on the island.

100_3655 The fireplace is a three-sided gas unit. It was not embellished with extra materials, just wrapped with oak to match the bookcases that surround the unit. Being able to view the fire from three sides is a nice feature.
