Hi Amy. No recollection of the exact color, but it was probably a Benjamin-Moore paint.

NZ is beautiful here! Even after the earthquakes here in Christchurch :)
You should definitely make a trip out.
I will however be in Los Angeles late July - early August

Would you be able to email me and let me know what your costs are involved for a kitchen design? My email -

Thanks so much!
