The tile under the range is a very nice modern touch indeed to add to the cabin feel. Great work!

Spot lights are great in vaulted ceiling to add 'task' lighting! Who makes these?

I believe the lights are Micro Spot G made by Translite Systems.

Its a nice size, isn't it? Not big, not small. I'm afraid that we don't know where it was purchased; it came from the owner's previous house. Many people/companies make similar tables.

For the cabinets, they are rough-sawn doug fir cabinets, Rocky Mtn Hardware pulls, and a dark cabinetry stain.
For the trim, I'm not sure I know to what trim you are referring. The windows and doors have a simple gyp-bd return, with no trim.

The flooring is an unfinished reclaimed teak that has been given a very light sanding to even it out a bit. The horse-centric family that lives there finds it to be a perfect surface for their lifestyle. Sources include Terramai (terramai.com) and even though it's notnoted on their website you might want to contact Arc Wood & Timbers (arcwoodandtimbers.com) for FSC teak and other woods.

Range Hood - Can you provide me a little more information about the range hood? Is it stucco? I like the way that it looks like an extension of the wall, rather than hanging on the wall.....

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Perhaps your bold move is to use patterns in unconventional ways. Check out the amazing backsplash in this modern-rustic kitchen. The tile is bold and modern in black and white, but the pattern references the quilts of Amish and Mennonite communities. What a unique mix of styles!

Love love these cabinets. Maybe a shade lighter. They look modern, yet rustic. And I prefer the style where the doors are flush. In general, they have an Italian cabinet look which I prefer. And again, I love the dark, textured ceiling.

You could find a tangerine color square tile and white (or other coordinating color) square tiles, you or the tile installer can cut into the design of your choice. Half tiles were used here.
