Mt Tabor Remodel

After a house fire destroyed much of the interior of this SE Portland home, the owners took the opportunity to upgrade the kitchen and master bath. The result is a clean-lined, but historically sensitive renovation of this Craftsman home.

Thank you for your response. Very interesting. Would you be able to tell me more about when you would choose to do a similar color grout vs. a contrasting color. Is one more contemporary, etc.?

These decisions are specific to each project. One is searching for balance. No one component must draw too much attention to itself. It is the whole that wants to dazzle! (And sorry it took me so long to see this question!)

What a beautiful kitchen! What are the paint colors for the cabinetry and walls? - I also love porcelain undermount sink? Do you happen to know the manufacturer? Thanks in advance!

The walls are Benjamin Moore "Philadelphia Cream"; the cabinets are Benjamin Moore "Arctic White."
The sink is Kohler. Thanks for the compliment.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

New white cabinetry immediately lightened the room's visual weight. Instead of closing off this tiled wall at the peninsula with cabinetry, Howells left the space open, allowing light from the breakfast nook to flow through.
