So glad you like this kitchen! It was a fun project -- great clients. They selected a granite that's similar to "Copper Canyon," from Pental (check out their website, The stone looks wonderful with cherry cabinets, and blends well with the travertine flooring.

The Homeowners like the grain and reddish tones of cherry, but didn't want "red" cabinets. The stain was custom-mixed by the manufacturer, based on a sample that I provided. The stain a medium golden brown that blends better with the countertop and the floor.

The built-in refrigerator and built-in freezer are parallel to the long side of the island, on either side of about 7 feet of base and wall cabinets; there's also a microwave/convection oven built into the wall cabinets.

The flooring is travertine tile in a large Versailles pattern; the color is "Galata". The walls have Sherwin-Williams paint -- a custom color that was developed using the countertops and flooring. Sherwin-Williams has a great tool that you can use to find similar colors: I uploaded this picture from my file, and they suggested SW6647 "Exciting Orange". This is a very large kitchen, with very few walls. For a smaller area, I'd recommend a lighter tint of the same color.

The homeowners purchased the low-voltage pendant fixtures from a local supplier in Portland. Unfortunately, the showroom closed about a year ago. Sorry. I've seen similar fixtures at Tech Lighting. Good luck!
