I can put you in contact with an interior designer we often work with, Julie Holmes, and she can help you order this backsplash. You can contact us directly at and I will connect you with her. Thanks!

The painter that we typically use, Tom Hedke of Hedke Painting, would recommend 729 Jack Frost for the ceiling color.

The Shabby Nest suggested Valspar's Aqua Frost a while back. I'll add Ben Moore's Swept Away/701 to the list.

maryd0524 - thank you! Tell me - where's the harm in saying "white" or "gray"? I live in California, they're back east. It's not like I'd actually hire them! And if I were to hire a designer, it would be Sarah Richardson or Kenneth Brown, anyway!

The house is full of cottage details as well as contemporary features that make it feel fresh. The expansive kitchen with its foggy-blue subway tile has a distinctly coastal vibe. Countertop: Quartz; pendants: Schoolhouse Electric
