River Oaks White Kitchen

The overall goal of the project was to create a space that was open, welcoming and truly livable, while still managing to take the users' breath away with a uniquely beautiful design. The designer, kept the traditional 50's style of the home and added modern elements such as Shark Skin glass tiles, Supreme Black textured paint on a cold-rolled steel custom hood, and a slate countertop mimicking a tide rolling in on a charcoal canvas. The cream Brookhaven by Wood-Mode Custom Cabinetry finish warmed up the otherwise cool color palette. Streamlined Sub-Zero and Thermador appliances and retro-style, chrome hardware mixed with natural stone created the modern-traditional style the clients wished to achieve.

What is the name of the granite color used on the counters? How about the material and color of the island?

Great kitchen. Is this a custom designed hood? If so may I ask whom you sourced it with? It's a great look-thanks
