What is the colorful material for the island? Is it backlit? Where can I buy this? It is fabulous! - Building a house now and looking for an option for a backlit wall in a powder room. Something like this would be perfect!

jenn, it looks like a large scale photo printed on vinyl. check with your local camera shop or printing service. I have also seen photos printed on transparencies (a sheet of mylar or other plastic) that are backlit.

A punch of color appears in the most unlikely of places: the kitchen island panel. A dreamlike image of blues, whites and greens was printed on Lexan by Mitanidis' brother, a print-shop owner. It provides the perfect jolt of contrast to the monochromatic space. The home's washer and dryer are hidden behind the white curtain, while the powder room is tucked around the corner.
