Hello. Thanks for the nice comment. That hood was a custom built hood by the contractor on site. It was plastered over and painted. Inside are the hood ventilation components and the wood frame.

What is the countertop of the cabinets

It's a granite material named "Buxy Cendre". It was in limited supply a few years ago, so I'm not sure how available it is now. You can get a similar look with "Lagus Azul". Lagus Azul will be a little more "grey" and not as "warm" looking as the Buxy. The island stone top is white carrera marble. The kitchen backsplash tiles are from Ann Sacks. www.annsacks.com and yes, they are a mix of off white colors.

Hi. As you noted, most paint colors (especially whites and off-whites) take on a very different look in each individual environment. They will also take a "tint" color of other colors in the same room when light is reflected off that color. I.e... if you have white walls, but a red area rug, you will see a "red" tint to the walls. So it's all very subjective. As a starting point you could get small paint samples of.... Benjamin Moore: "Floral White", "Swiss Coffee", "Tapestry Beige" and "Feather Down" to try. Paint a 12x12 square on a couple walls to see how the colors look at different times of day. If you have painted trim, put the 12x12 samples up next to the trim paint color so you can see how the large paint samples look up against the trim color. Good luck.

Tommy Chambers Interiors, Inc.
Hi. Thanks for the comment. We never really had an exact finish/paint color spec'd for those cabinets. We based it on the attached image of a cabinet door that we had already. It is basically an "off-white" painted cabinet door with a dark powder that gives it an "antique" look, that was applied by our custom painters/finishers.
