Paint color is Called Surrey by Ralph Lauren. The kitchen was featured in Domino magazine- in 2008 I think. The kitchen belongs to Jenna Lyons from JCrew.

Nothing here is really like what you are looking for Wicks, but I just really love this kitchen.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to Kitchen Layouts: Island or a Peninsula?
My personal favorite expression of the peninsula is the one that's attached to a perpendicular wall, without any cabinets on that wall. It looks like an island; the only difference is that there's no walkway on one end, and this can often translate into more counterspace and better circulation. For smaller kitchens, this is a great solution. When you have to carve out at least 36 inches on both sides of the island, that really eats into your real estate. If you're looking for a more spacious circulation path, this is the way to go. Tip: To get this look, where a peninsula looks more like an island, resist the desire to put cabinets on either side on the perpendicular wall or even above the counter.

4. Concrete. If you're doing concrete countertops, it only seems natural to run it up the wall for a sleek and unfussy look — and I love the added shelf on top here. It looks great mixed with the stainless behind the stove.
Ivon Street Studio added this to Ecofriendly Materials: Kitchen Countertops
ConcreteConcrete counters can be a terrific green choice if they are sourced locally or cast in place (transporting heavy slabs great distances consumes a lot of energy). Also, look for low-impact aggregates, such as increased coal fly ash, and recycled glass or paper.Cost: $60 to $75 per square foot for the material only (precast slabs)Tell us: What is your favorite ecofriendly countertop?More:Kitchen Countertops 101: Choosing a Surface MaterialAlternatives to Granite Countertops
