Would you recommend trying a lighter paint or glaze under the black? - I'd like to try to incorporate a minty green-blue coming through from under the black. Is it generally recommended to to a brighter color, or would that work well?

Obviously a brighter color has more punch when used like that. I don't think there would be anything wrong with a more subtle use of color behind the black. It might look more authentic. Try a smaller area before doing the entire element.

Hope that helps, and good luck with your project.

Love the island! - Is that stainless on the island? Where was the island purchased?

The island is a very interesting feature of the house. The home is located about four blocks from Northwestern University in Evanston, IL. The island is made from a vintage lab table from Northwestern. The top is culinary pewter that was custom fabricated in France. It was delivered with a slight warp in it, and it was quite a challenge to get it flat.

The culinary pewter top is preferred by pastry chefs. I don't recall the exact amount, but I believe the countertop by itself was something like $4000.

I hope that helps. Take care.

Kitchen lighting - Has anyone used monorail lighting that includes spotlighting and pendant lighting on same rail over center island?

Brilliant! Lighting & Design
I've used pendants and spots together on a rail system. The one shown here (
) is above a peninsula with breakfast bar. I used longer cords on the pendants so they could swag to hang over the bar while the rail with spots hangs over the counter to get good task lighting into cabinets & onto the counter.
If you choose a twin circuit rail system you can control the spots and pendants separately.

LOVE THE HUTCH! - What did you use to finish the hutch? Black paint, stain, etc. please provide color and product!

The hutch was custom made for the owner. She directly contracted that out. I believe that is an off red stain for a base, with a flat black (probably very dark gray) stain on top, which was then distressed to reveal part of the red stain below.

I think it looks great, especially in this vintage house, which dates from the 1880's. It was the site of the first kindergarden in Evanston.

Take care,

Nate

The was custom made. The island actually was a science lab table from Northwestern University, located about 1/2 mile away from the house, and the countertop is culinary pewter fabricated in France.

Love the worn black stain with different stain color (red?) underneath coming through. What would happen if a lighter stain or paint were used underneath? (I'm thinking mint.) I also love the boxwood wreath with black ad white striped ribbon for the holidays. Can I just take the whole thing, please? ;)

Black cabinets show imperfections and dust like no other color. Distressing them is a great way to deal with these concerns and revealing the browns below the finish my help tie them to other wooden products in the room.
