Base and case - My husband says that "casing" (molding around doors and windows ) is not being used in modern homes. Is he nuts?

If by "modern" you mean contemporary homes, yes, he is correct. For more traditional homes, it is still used a lot. Here is a contemporary home we did recently. As you can see, not a lot of millwork used...

Bin pulls with recessed panel - Are there any functionality issues with having the bin pulls on the drawers with recessed panels? I love the look but our cabinet designer was concerned about having a difficult time reaching into the cup and potentially scratching the finish of the cabinet with rings.

We have never experienced functionality issues with pulls on recessed panels... You should design them into your project without hesitation if you like the look. Thanks, and good luck!

Can you tell me if there is a rule of thumb with how much space you need to have a cup pull inside a recessed panel?

Love the cabinets - We're these existing cabinets that you painted white dove or do you buy plain wood cabinets and then paint?

These cabinets were not existing. This entire room was a gut and remodel. The white cabinets are Poplar enameled with Benjamin Moore - White Dove. The stained wood you see is Walnut with a custom blend of stains. Thanks for asking!

Backsplash tiles - What tile color is that? I'm thinking about Dove White for our cabinets but am concerned that I won't be able to find a white subway that will look right with it. Yours looks great! And are the cabinets dove white?
