The owner is an amazing interior designer- I strictly helped with space and cabinet planning. So much thought and planning went into this space- I hated to see the project end!

Hi- the client purchased the faucets. I know they are brass and European made, but do not know the actual brand. Look at Waterworks, PE Guerin and Rohl for something similar. Thank you.

Hi- The ceiling height is 9' high. The chandelier is 48" wide and is hanging down about 55" from the ceiling. Thanks- Amy

Hi- I'm sorry- I didn't see your question! The bench is about 5'8" long- the island is 7'x5'. I'm not sure about the table dimensions. It is an antique and was purchased by the owner. I will say it's skinny- probably 26" wide by about 8' long. Thanks-

Hi- thanks for the question. The owner sourced the hardware and I can't find where they are from in my files. She used a combination of ring pulls, appliance pulls and knobs with decorative back plates- all in brass- which ages beautifully. The appliance pulls are probably from Top Knobs- check out their website. Top Knobs hardware is a little more expensive- but worth it as the quality and finishes are amazing. I always think hardware is like jewelry for your cabinets and they should look and feel heavy and substantial.

Hi- The cabinets are a custom color with glaze and distressing by Heritage Woodworks in Suffolk Va. The color was based on Farrow and Ball's Lamp Room Gray #88. I am not sure what the owner used on her walls and trim- most likely one of the beautiful Farrow and Ball whites. Here is a link to their website ( ) You have to pay for their sample color book- but the samples are nice and high quality.

Hi- the owner found the gorgeous beams and floor. The beams are solid, rough cut, and were from a barn I believe. A less expensive and easier to install option would be to use hollow beams. The green kitchen I have in my projects used that option and they are beautiful as well.

Oak & Broad
Amy has given good advice. We make box beams for clients that dont really need the solid beam. One thing to always remember when using reclaimed products like beams from barns is that they must be heat treated. This kills the spiders and insects that would typically inhabit them.
