Thanks! The color was Benjamin Moore "Adagio" 1593. Make sure to get physical samples of any colors that you are considering, as looking at colors on a computer monitor can be a bit risky. For example, on my monitor this color appears much bluer than it actually is. Good luck!

I am planning to put my cookbooks in the cabinet above my wall ovens unless I can find a way to work in a barrister bookcase. I don't want mine near the floor in an open shelf because I have small kids who get into everything...

Hi, the countertop material on this project was a white marble called Bianco Venetino. However, I must caution you that marble is not a very forgiving countertop material as it stains and etches very easily.

If you think you might be ok with the maintenance and the patina it will develop over time, get a sample of the stone you are considering and use it as a spoon rest in your kitchen for a bit so that you see what happens. If you want a white material with minimal maintenance and greater stain resistance, you should consider solid surfacing materials like Caesarstone, Silestone. and Corian.

The kitchen ceiling is made up of tin ceiling tiles from M Boss Inc. ( which were then painted on site. The adjacent dining area had an original painted tin ceiling so it was an easy choice to go with a similar tin pattern for the new kitchen ceiling.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Tiffany Carboni added this to The Great Kitchen Cabinet Cleanup
4. Toss any food that's expired. "You will be amazed by the amount of space this one act alone will clear up," Klimala says.5. Remove items you use less than twice a year and store them in another area. This includes cookbooks. "Pick your top five to 10 favorite cookbooks," she suggests. "Then store the rest elsewhere or donate."Tip: If you're holding on to a cookbook for a single go-to recipe, photocopy the page and then pass the book along to someone else.
Becky Harris added this to Everyday Shrines for a Happier Home
Literature in a favorite genre. This idea is very personal and is my favorite of the shrines Rubin describes. In honor of her love of children’s and young-adult literature, she created a shrine to them. “Instead of keeping these books scattered around the apartment, I would reorganize some bookcases to make a Shrine to Children’s Literature,” she writes. Once she was done organizing her Harry Potters, Little House books, L’Engles and Tolkiens in the same area, “just standing in front of these shelves made me happy,” she writes.Whether it’s your cookbook collection, a pile of favorite Elmore Leonards, fashion monographs or that stack of Domino magazines you’ll never part with as long as you live, organize them in a place where they are easy to access and admire.
