Color of floor versus island/fridge - This is an absolutely gorgeous kitchen. Can you tell the island also a walnut; and what is the difference in shades between the floor and the island/cabinet. Any chance you can tell me what stains were used on each? I don't like anywhere near MN, or I'd hire you!

Hi There! Yes, the island is also Walnut. The floors are Oak. Both the floors and stained cabinetry were stained with a custom blend of stains to match a sample that the clients likes. Therefore, I do not have the exact name of stain for you. Thanks for the kind words!

I am guessing the bottom drawers are just to make them look like cabinetry but the actual fridge is side by side. How neat and creative!

Try Valspar's Natural for a similar green, and dove white for a similar white.
