It is the same in all the areas -- just looks different here because of the lighting. But it has a lot of variation throughout the planks, as you can see here.

What type of paint was used on the cabinets?

Benjamin Moore Misted Fern. I think the finish was eggshell or satin -- washable for the kitchen, but not too shiny.

Thank you so much, I'm so glad you like it! The walls are Everlasting by Benjamin Moore. Have been really happy with that choice. Trim is White Dove.

Cool kitchen could you tell me the height of the wall cabinets and height of crown molding? Thank you!!
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
sarahandgarth
Thanks I'm glad you like it! We really like it too :)

The crown molding is about 7 1/2" high total. The cabinets are 38" high. My builder set everything so that the crown molding is about a half inch below the ceiling so that there would be a shadow -- his idea and we really like how that turned out.

What type & color is the counter type?
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
sarahandgarth
Hi okogie, the counters are soapstone with an eased edge. Soapstone comes in a variety of shades and levels of detail. We chose the stone from a bunch of different ones, we wanted it to be dark and look fairly plain but have a little bit of veining. It's oiled here -- we oil it about once a month or so.

I've always wanted to have cabinets painted but was afraid you would see brush strokes?

You know, I thought that might happen too, but honestly you can't see them. Our painter was excellent -- I suppose that makes a difference, and he probably used particularly good brushes! I think he also used a mini-roller on the larger surfaces.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Kravits was also inspired by the structure of her house itself. Her home was built in the mid-1920s, and creating a kitchen that would feel natural and recall the pre-WWII era was important to her. She worked with her architect to take design cues from the home's original molding, flooring and trim. Even old colors of paint revealed by stripping trim and doors was considered in the kitchen design.
Vanessa Brunner added this to From the Pros: How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets
What to watch out for. Painting cabinetry may seem like a quick and easy kitchen solution, bit it's a big job. Make sure you have the time, skills and patience for the task. Odds are, you'll be looking at this cabinetry every day — so make sure you have the ability to make it look good. If you're feeling unsure, look into hiring a professional painter. While it may be more expensive, these pros can probably get the work done in much less time and with a result of much higher quality. "Always get a few opinions," says Thomspon. "Regardless of your decision, talking to several companies will be a learning experience." Many professionals will use spray applications to get the smoothest finish, which can make a huge difference. Painting cabinetry can be a lot of work — but whether you hire a pro or do the painting yourself, the results are well worth it. "Above all, have fun with the project," says Miano. "Remember, it's only paint."More: 3 Dark Kitchens, 6 Suggested Paint Palettes
