JMA mediterranean-kitchen


Home built by JMA (Jim Murphy and Associates); designed by Hart Howerton. Photo credit: Tim Maloney, Technical Imagery Studios.

Extraordinary impressions of the old world were created in this Tuscan-style home. Stucco exterior walls and wrought iron fixtures give a handmade, rustic look that exemplifies the architectural style. The plaster interior walls, artfully crafted, embrace the home's romance with the past. Their surface is a blend of colors created on site with a wax patina applied to some of the walls. The remarkable feeling of elegant antiquity is aided by the home's floors, which were created from reclaimed wood. Our carpenters gave the large beams in the great room and kitchen a rustic radiance through modern distressing techniques.

Looks like color washing or a custom plaster to me! I'm doing the same thing in my house and looks just like this! Youtube color washing :)

Oh, they just came in an email: The room is aprox. 36 feet long and 23 feet wide. Walls are 11.5 feet high. Don’t know what the ceiling height is. I do recall the client telling me the room and the house were the perfect size for him and his family. The architect did well.

Im in love with this style/set up... not sure what it is called but I am obsessed with the symmetry & flow! I currently have designed a floor plan that has a great room just like this but 19 wide & 38 long. I was afraid fitting furniture would be hard. I may add 2-4 feet in width but this photo & your information helps me a lot! I am a visual person but I can not for the life of me visualize measurements! lol Thank you so much!!

That looks like what they call Juparana Persia in our region. You might try Colonial Dream as well.

Kitchen Craft has a similar color on maple or cherry called Toffee Black Glaze or Sienna Mocha Glaze. And it looks very similar to their Wellington door style.

This reminds me of the Ralph Lauren Antique Leather technique. Try Base: DEVONSHIRE NA22 Glaze: CAMEL AL01 RL Number: NA22-AL01.

What type of wood and stain are these cabinets?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Between Naps on the Porch added this to 12 Creative Ideas for Decorating Above the Cabinets
If the ceiling above your cabinets soars, you'll need to use larger items for display to keep them from getting lost in that area. Just a few large pieces are all you need to fill the emptiness of the space.
8. Dark wood tones. Mediterranean furniture is often solid, sturdy and elaborately carved or turned. Cabinetry and furnishings in a kitchen done in this style reflect that look, with rich woods such as walnut, along with deep staining and decorative detailing.Browse thousands of Mediterranean home photosMore:9 Elements of Spanish Revival KitchensColor Inspiration From the Mediterranean
