They were one of a kind antique fixtures. I got them at South of Market here in Atlanta. Check out their website at www.southofmarket.biz and you might be able to find something similar. Good luck!

Gary,

Thanks! That's what I was wondering, if it was done on site with a paint brush or in a paint shop. It's sometimes hard to tell on a photo. It's really amazing work.!

The floor is a 5" wide, hand-scraped, walnut. It is very durable and is a great looking floor. This particular wood was prefinished and installed toward the very end of construction. I don't think the supplier is still around, but I suspect you could find a similar product.

The Cabinets and the Trim are the same color, Gettysburg Gray, from Benjamin Moore, with a Satin finish. The wood walls behind the range are painted French Canvas (also Benjamin Moore) in a flat finish.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

13. Curate your cookbooks. Keep things easy and inspiring by sorting through your cookbooks and setting aside volumes that you know you won't use during warmer months (winter soups and stews, I'm looking at you). At the first nip in the air this fall, you can go grab that box of books and swap out the summery ones.
Pull out the cookbooks. You may not have a custom-built island with designated cookbook space, but that doesn't mean you can't display cookbooks. There could be room on an open shelf, on top of the refrigerator or even on the counter.
