William, beautiful kitchen! Could you please tell me the ceiling height and the size of the beams. What is the depth and width of the beams.
Kind Regards

Circa Lighting has similar fixtures that look great in kitchens. Look at their "merchant" and "subway" pendants. This kitchen, with it's beautiful ceiling, has got to be one of the most viewed photos!

Often times painted finishes like this are on Maple. Each manufacturer has a standard 'white' or 'ivory' and custom companies offer an color you want to pick from the color deck.

I love the look and I was told by several people that I would be sorry if I used that - shows all dirt and smears. Anyone have comments....must decide soon.

Yes, they are right, black is the hardest stone to keep clean, everything shows on it. I would suggest looking into a honed absolute black countertop, not so shiny, therefor not everything shows on it.

Do you have any views of the sitting room portion, near the fire place, of this great room? It looks like a well done kitchen, dining, sitting room transition in a large open room, and I'd love to see more pictures or an top-view design sketch.

Thanks petsorus, for taking time to answer. I checked out their website per your suggestion. (I was surprised that their page on houzz is much easier to see/read). They have nice pictures of their work, I was just hoping for a different view than the ones on houzz or their website. There is one that shows the dining table better, but I can't find one that shows the sitting area hinted at by white chair in this photo. Thanks again.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

There's nothing like perfect symmetry to make you feel strong and stable in a space. Here, the symmetry between the height of the fireplace and the height of the windows creates such a feeling of confidence. Using two identical topiaries on the left and right side of the firebox also lends to the well-balanced look and feel in this space.
Kit Pollard added this to 5 Design Lessons from Restaurants
4. Create spaces that allow for a feeling of both privacy and activity. One of the great things about a restaurant meal is the ability to have a private experience with just those you came with, but in a public space.
Janell Beals - House of Fifty Mag added this to Box Beam Ceilings
This kitchen and family room comes very close to my ideal version of such a space. The ceiling surface between the beams is lined with beadboard and simple light fixtures are placed at each beam intersection. Perfect. The cabinetry could not be more beautiful and gorgeous floor to ceiling windows line the space. The only change I would wish for are slightly darker floors to create a bit more contrast. But really, if offered, I'd take the space just as it is in a heartbeat and be content for years to come!
Kerrie L. Kelly added this to Vintage Modern: Pairing Old and New
Sleek finishes provide a simple backdrop for traditional furnishings, retro lighting and weathered stone to create a vintage modern look.
Like the beadboard and coffers in the previous photos? Then you probably loved this gorgeous ceiling design, which combines them into one look.
This kitchen combines square coffers with a beadboard background for even more interest overhead.
Rebekah Zaveloff | KitchenLab added this to How to Detail a Kitchen Island with Legs
Here's another similar size and shaped semi-recessed leg, however in this case the leg is flat. Again, you can see the additional molding along the top and the furniture-style base trim rather than a recessed toekick where the panel and legs meet the floor. This countertop runs straight across and doesn't follow the projection of the leg. Legs like this vary in size from 6" to as large as 9".
Rows of semiflush-mount pendants blend the best of both worlds: the visual appeal of pendant lighting and the low profile of a flush mount. Thanks to their orderly placement, these also enhance the architecture of the coffered ceilings.
