Vantage Point

As part of a conversion of a Summer Cottage into a year-round residence, the kitchen was transformed into an authentic “cook’s kitchen”. The space is uninterrupted by seating and gathering spaces; the floor plan creates an efficient magic triangle of appliances; and the combination of open, closed and glassed storage creates a convenient visual access to cookware. Materials are a combination of the warmth of wood, the sleekness of painted cabinets, and the ease in maintenance of stainless steel.

Thanks for your question. We are unsure of the name of this paint color, but I can tell you it was most likely Benjamin Moore paint.
