I can give you approximate dimensions. I finished this kitchen about 6 years ago and I don't have blueprints in my office any longer. The kitchen was about 18' x 15'. The island was 48"x 60". The distance between counter and island was about 42". Hope that helps. Charmean Neithart

HI there. The stain color was custom mixed on site. It involves bleaching the wood and then whitewashing it. There is very little color added, the bleaching just opens the grain a bit and then the whitewash is applied. Has a lot of gray in the whitewash. Sorry I can't be more specific. Create a couple samples and show this picture to your cabinet maker. They should be able to get close.

Here is another kitchen with a similar finish...

I used French White Oak on this project which is slightly more rustic than American White Oak. Here is where I bought the lumber for this kitchen...

Hope that helps.

Bar stools w/ without chair back? - Is there some convention or guideline that you use to determine when to use a barstool with or without a back? Thank you for the gorgeous pictures of your designs; you have incredible style! Una

Hi Una,

Actually I just go by what the homeowner wants, there is no real science. I can offer this however, use a swivel back barstool if you have a great room/family room adjacent to the kitchen. You might want to swivel around to see TV and participate in conversation at the same time. Also, if you have narrow traffic lanes surrounding island, try a backless barstool so you can tuck them under counter. Hope that helps. Charmean Neithart

Great advice; helps tremendously with choices. I was curious since in this kitchen both types are featured and I can see where you tucked in the stools in the narrow space. You're amazing! Thanks a million for your reply!

Thank you very much. The homeowners really gave me a lot of freedom which is when great design happens. I hope your project works out well, let me know if you need any help along the way. Not sure where you are located, but the owner of De-Cor is Deepali. She is very helpful and I'm sure can source out something similar for you and work with you on shipping. They have many wonderful pieces and are familiar with building. Keep me posted on your progress. Charmean Neithart

This is granite called Sea Foam Green. It is a silvery sage color. Here is the stone yard I bought it from...
Type in "Sea Foam Green" in the search box, it will come up.
Hope that helps, thank you for your interest.

Becky Harris added this to Houzzers Say: Dream Kitchen Must-Haves
Advanced waterworks. Houzz designer suggestions included a second sink in the kitchen as well as a hot faucet at the main sink. This kitchen has both.
The glass pendant lights are repurposed wine jars. In fact, when Neithart received them, one still had a big wine stain on the bottom. "I could not get the wine stain out, so I called Bobo's. They gave me the recipe for a magic potion to soak it in for 48 hours, and it worked," says Neithart. "To me, a Spanish home is a warm home," says Neithart. She certainly made sure to prove it with this beautiful family home.Counter stools: Crate and BarrelMore:10 Favorite Features of Spanish Revival StyleHouzz Tour: An Urban Castle in Pasadena9 Architectural Elements of Spanish Revival Style
