Can you tell me what is the name of the molding around the window?

I dn't think there's a name for this. We were matching the molding of the house (1928) and this is made using 2 pieces. It's about 4 inch wide--we used 1 x 4s first (placed in a simple cottage style--top above sides rather than mitered corners) and then you have a simple trim molding that wraps around edge which you miter at the corners.

Is that the same color used on the built-in cabinetry?

No--the hutch piece you see in that picture was a BM paint--I can't recall the color name--it was a grey-that reads a bit green--like nantucket grey--it was either that or something like it:) We used Matres Pearl (sometimes called "Perola") quartzite on the perimeter cabs and we were just trying to find a color that looked nice with that tone--its a greyish greenish stone...

The fabric is from Calico Corners. I can't recall the exact swatch name, but I'm happy to investigate my files if you choose to go there. I know CC makes curtains/shades to order, though I've only used CC for fabric.
