Birmingham Custom Kitchen

This Quarton Lake architectural gem was built merely 8 years ago. The original kitchen never met the homeowner's needs. As a result they hired MainStreet to design and build a two story addition off of the rear of the home, gaining much needed space in the kitchen and master closet. The new custom kitchen features a copper and limestone hood, mocha glazed character cherry and hand painted cabinetry from Plato Woodwork, along with contrasting flamed granite countertops. The Brazilian walnut floor adds to the unique character of this lovely home.

Hi junn777,
Thank you for your inquiry. They are in fact Brazilian Walnut, not cherry (which is much more orange) or mahogany (also much more orange and a different grain pattern).
Best regards,
Christine Ramaekers, CKD

HI Again!
The Table is from Arhaus and I believe the chairs are as well. They do custom upholstery and should be able to help you.

I love Decatur buff!! Thinking about painting my large living room with it but I have med/dark sage green couch and love seat. Think it would be okay?

Hi there,
I too love Decatur Buff and have used it on many occasions. However, without seeing the actual job I am limited in my ability to make a recommendation. I would say that typically Decatur Buff and Sage green would coordinate nicely. I recommend putting up samples in 4 different locations within the room to see how the light plays off the walls and furnishings.
