there too. My husband is a builder and I too am designing our home. I'm hung up on the kitchen. I was planning on all white cabinetry, carrera marble on the island and honed black around the perimeter. (And, I’m narrowing down from three possible backsplashes! Eeek!) Now, I'm considering a gray island
We are remodeling the kitchen in a post and beam home near the ocean. The floors are oiled southern pine and the wood is all Douglas Fir for the timbers. I would like to use bluish grey, white, and carrera marble, but i worry about the colors not being good in a timber frame home. I
I am using carrara on my counters and island. The cabinets are a white dove color and the island will be a
mid dark stained alter wood. I am very traditional and will have a darked stain on the floors with older oriental rugs. Would you recommend using solid carrara for the backsplash

What type of hardwood floor is used?
It is my understanding that hardwood floors should not be used in bathrooms. What type of flooring is this or what was done to the floors in order for it to sustain water and moisture.
Waterlox lasts, all wood floor finishes need to be redone periodically. Here is the website for Waterlox: http://www.waterlox.com/ it is a good product that gives a very warm, buttery, soft finish.Here is their floor finishing guide: http://www.waterlox.com/project-help/guides/Floor-Finishing.aspx Good
that condition when cold water runs through a supply pipe and the surrounding air is warm. This is more the case with metal pipes rather than PVC (the white plastic piping). Cold water pipes can be insulated to reduce condensation. So, yes, condensation on pipes can be a problem, but this is more the case

The floor tile is lovely. Source?
Keystone from Waterworks, a slightly larger basketweave? Also, is the dot black or grey? Hard to tell from picture. I am about to purchase from Eaterworks, and love this bathroom. Also, is the wall tile glossy or matte. Also from waterworks? Thanks so much.
Wall tile is glossy and the flooring is black and white.
Hello! Who is the maker of the floor and wall tile? It is lovely and simple, yet elegant.
Love this floor tile, would look great in mstr bath in Vernon.
Nice mix of tile + basket weave floor
Floor and vanity but in black or expresso
Same as the old tile floor.

Christea, I am also considering Virginia Mist instead of Absolute Black for the exact reasons you stated and am also doing white shaker cabinets with marble back splash. Just wondering
Black Absolute with Carrara Marble. I am doing the white shaker cabinets with the Carrara Marble back splash but I have been steered away from the Absolute because I'm
it is a nightmare for fingerprints, water marks, and streaking. Instead I am going with Virginia Mist from Virginia USA. A very beautiful black with white mist running through. Having a tough time securing the blocks I need because it is a granite in demand.
Thanks for the compliment, I am unsure of the wall colour but it is Sherwin Williams paint. The cabinets and decorative hood are sprayed white Sherwin williams laquer.

Are the floors original? What type?
This is a beautiful space. Can u please describe the floors?
In the original photos the fireplace looks like it was painted white, did you resurface or paint over the existing paint?
know what color stain you used on the reclaimed wood floor. I have the long leaf river retrieved floors and I would love to stain them this color. It is very rich looking. the design is beautiful.
I have reclaimed heart pine select on my floors, and have never stained them. What stain did you
We manufacture and prefinish reclaimed and new cut heart pine. "Harvest Blend" is the prefinished color we offer most similar to this floor. We don't use a stain but add pigments to the oil finish. There is no stain I know of that will get this look.

Would you recommend trying a lighter paint or glaze under the black?
I'd like to try to incorporate a minty green-blue coming through from under the black. Is it generally recommended to to a brighter color, or would that work well?
What did you use to finish the hutch? Black paint, stain, etc. please provide color and product!
Obviously a brighter color has more punch when used like that. I don't think there would be anything wrong with a more subtle use of color behind the black. It might look more authentic. Try a smaller area before doing the entire element. Hope that helps, and good luck with your project.
The hutch was custom made for the owner. She directly contracted that out. I believe that is an off red stain for a base, with a flat black (probably very dark gray) stain on top, which was then distressed to reveal part of the red stain below. I think it looks great, especially in this
They are Black Walnut floors. We just sent a similar floor to another Houzz user. Let me know if you have any Walnut questions. email@example.com
