Hello Hodtric,
The color Used in this two-story kitchen project was a custom paint and glaze combination.
The base paint color was off-white (or vanilla) and the glaze was an olive tone (or fudge).
Our glazing process is put on dry and then rubbed off to create an antique effect.

Hope this helps

SOFFIT HELP! Should we remove it??? - THIS is the most gorgeous home i have ever seen. I see this soffit and I'm wondering if I can please ask a question here regarding my soffit. We're redoing the kitchen. Should we remove the soffit and add higher uppers with crown molding, make it shorter or leave it? Here is the Houzz link: http://www.houzz.com/discussions/504379/SOFFIT-HELP---Should-we-remove-it--- Cabinet designers want to reface the bottom, replace the uppers and remove the soffit. My concern is that the uppers will look like they are floating in space. The ceiling is 12 1/2 feet high. On Houzz when I see people do that, they always have a huge range hood that extends to the ceiling to sort of "ground" the kitchen. It becomes a great focal point. I don't even think we have a focal point. Thanks for you help!

Torry,
The style we like is exactly the style you are showing me. However I'm confused. Say we go with taller cabinets, then crown molding....are you saying the soffit should be the same material as the cabinets? I see that in your pics but the wooden soffit above your crown molding all attaches to the ceiling. We still will not be near the ceiling. Now we have 30" cabinets, a 16" soffit and 4 ft. from the top of the soffit to the ceiling. And the base of the windows hits the top of the soffit. Nice fireplace in your picture. We have a crew here this morning taking out all our tile and they also removed our fireplace. I'm looking at canterra stone or perhaps something similar to your's.

Amber,
Correct you have 46" of cabinets and soffit. If you use a 42" wall cabinet and a 4" crown molding or a 36" cabinet and a 10" crown/soffit molding you will achieve the look of most of the photos I previously attached.

This photo shows a 10' ceiling and a 42" cabinet with a 2pc. crown/soffit.

Also interesting is that this island has two different levels of seating by using the step-down adjoining Den.
