#lisagranthamdpt, these 2 columns at the end of the bar were added for aesthetic reasons only. They are non-bearing.
This kitchen was originally walled off completely from the other rooms; one 30" x 80" smallish interior door connected it to the dining room. So the clients and I were thrilled when we found out that both interior walls were non-bearing and could be removed.
But then we were faced with the "empty box" problem. When you have a series of small rooms, and you take out all the interior walls, the newly empty space can paradoxically feel smaller rather than larger. An unobstructed view of the back wall from the entry lacks mystery. With no doors opening up to half-way visible other rooms, with no archways to peak through (or columns to look around), the room's elements are just too easily seen. (If you've ever landscaped a house from scratch, you may have noticed the same irony: a well-designed lot full of trees, walkways, fences, flower beds, and gates looks bigger than the same lot when it is empty.)
In this case, we convinced the clients to add the (completely unnecessary) end pillars as well as a 6" dropped soffit box above the bar, and we felt that the new structures did a good job of framing the new kitchen and adding definition.

#jessshipley Thanks for your question on the cabinet color. Sorry that I didn't answer you earlier--I was cleaning out my email and I just happened to find your question (along with 3 others) that I seem to have overlooked back in November last year.
I don't know if you're still interested, but if so, these cabinets are from an American cabinet company called Greenfield Cabinetry, and the paint color is Chamomile with a black glaze. (It's sort of a gray/khaki color in real life.)

#snackbargeorge The bar in this photo is a standard 42" high, which is 6" higher than the 36" kitchen countertops behind it. This 42" height is the most common bar height around, and when you go to buy bar stools, you'll find that most of them will work. (Just stay away from the 24" high stools: they are meant for 36" high bar counters.) Good luck with your project.

HI magjagmin: you won’t believe this, but we found these 3 good-looking little pendant lights at LOWE’s, for the amazing price of $39 each. Our only issue was the original canopies (the part at the top that attaches to the ceiling), which were too rounded, so we ended up buying an additional 3 pendants with more square-edged canopies, and we had our electrician switch them out. (This left us, after all was said and done, with 3 complete alternate pendants; I think my client was able to find someone in her family who could use them.)

Hi kcunner- sorry for the delay in answering your question. If you're asking about the wall colors, we custom mixed them onsite, using Benjamin Moore colors, to get the the right shades. For the cabinets, the light colored cabinets are a gray/khaki paint with glaze from Greenfield Cabinetry, and the dark colored cabinets are a slate stain on maple from Columbia Cabinets. Both companies have proprietary finishes. Good luck with your project-

I am thinking of renovating a rental property and this kind of floor would be so ideal. Would you suggest doing this kind of floor (ceramic wood look) or should I go with traditional hardwood?

#paulyates For a rental unit, I would definitely recommend wood-look porcelain tile over traditional hard wood. The porcelain tile will last longer than hardwood flooring and it will be easier to clean. Plus, good quality porcelain "planking" can be as convincingly warm and rich looking as true hardwood.
As a matter of fact, the hard, non-porous surface of the porcelain tile is both the best and the worst quality of this material. It's the best quality because the tough porcelain surface won't fade, dent or scratch; it's the worst quality because there is no cushioning underfoot (unlike wood, carpet, or vinyl flooring). As with any hard floor, sometimes older people may find it to be rough on their knees and back. Hard surfaces are also known to reflect sound, so tile floors can increase the effects of loud music and footsteps.

Sorry it's taken me so long to answer your question about the amazing backsplash in this kitchen. My client designed and built this mosaic herself out of 1 x 1 glass tile in 3 colors, loosely following the metric of a classic Escher design. For the triangle shaped pieces, she had to learn how to first score and then use a nippers to break the tile in perfect 45 degree triangles. Although she used the same mesh as that used for commercially produced mosaics for the backing, at installation our tile guy ended up removing and setting each tile individually in order to get a perfect glass tile grid. I think both my client and my tile guy deserve "special effort" awards!

Thank you for your question on this charming kitchen, and please accept my apologies for the delay in answering it. The bar stools were purchased from West End about a year ago, and I believe they still carry something similar.

I'm sorry, I don't know! My client sourced this product directly. I have to say, she did a great job finding a good-looking tile at a reasonable price point.....

Sorry for the delay in answering your question in regard to the floors in this Escondido Home. The material is a 5 x 32 porcelain tile, and in this case we actually used a knock-off product that was very reasonably priced. In order to have a successful installation that keeps the look of a wood floor, we have learned to keep the grout joints tight and to always pick a darker grout (so that it looks like reveals between planks, rather than grout joints in tile). As a flooring option for the kitchen, a porcelain tile is generally a better choice than wood planking, which is beautiful but subject to scratches and water spotting. About the only disadvantage is the hardness of the floor, which can be a problem for older clients or those with back problems.
