#amyleboeuf Sorry, I don't really have any close-up photos of the ceiling.
You may appreciate, though, the story of how we ended up creating this particular coffered ceiling: my client had seen a photo in a magazine showing a dark wood coffered ceiling that slanted upwards, and she just loved it. We decided to recreate it in her kitchen (although in lighter colors) without realizing how difficult it was going to be to miter the molding corners when the angles are slanted upwards, rather than square. When the ceiling was close to finished (and after our carpenter had spent, maybe, 4 months work on it--about 3 months more than we had anticipated--), we took a closer look at that original ceiling photo and realized that it was not, actually, slanted at all. It was just an optical illusion created by the angle of the camera.
So sometimes from small mistakes, great things are created.....

Thank you for your question. As you may have guessed, this backsplash is made of marble mosaic chips. It was custom made by Ravenna Mosaics through Waterworks. We started with cartoons (provided by the mosaic company) of the bowl of flowers in the center and of the acanthus garland. We then assigned different marble colors based on our marble countertop, and we sent Ravenna our desired finished size (about 15' x 4', in this case). The company made us a sketch of the finished design, and they also made us a small 8" x 8" "strike-off," or sample. Once the sample was approved, the backsplash was hand assembled and then broken into 12 x 12 squares with irregular edges for shipping. (By using irregular edges on the pieces, we were less likely to be aware of joints between squares.) The 12 x 12 pieces were numbered sequentially on the back to help the tile installer position them properly during installation.

Our final cost on the material (no labor included) was somewhere between $5 and $10K.

What are the dimensions of the room? Thanks
Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo
Design Moe Kitchen & Bath / Heather Moe designer
This room is about 20’ x 18’ overall, a little smaller than the average 2-car garage. To give you an idea on how this space lays out, here are the dimensions across the space: the central island is 8’ wide, the corridors on each side are 48” wide, and then the cabs on each side (the sink on the right and the fridge at the left) are each about 26-27” deep.

Can you please identify what lighting is used in the wood trim above the island - how much wattage and where? - It appears that the lighting is only in the outside perimeter, but I am not sure.

Hi Fssamano. The custom mosaic backsplash was around $150-$200/SF; we chose the colors to match the marble counters.

Hi forkg,
The flooring in this home is rustic 3/4" thick marble tile. We used different sized pieces of honed crema marfil marble with antiqued (chipped) edges, and the tile is set in a classic non-directional Versailles pattern (i.e., it has 5 different size pieces, set in an offset, non-linear pattern).

Design Moe Kitchen & Bath / Heather Moe designer
Hi Lahumminbird, the cooktop in this kitchen is actually a Pro-style range by Wolf. It's 60" wide and it has two 30" single convection ovens below. Unfortunately I believe this size has since been discontinued, and none of the other major dual-fuel range manufacturers (Dacor, Thermador, Monogram, DCS) is currently making a 60" range (as far as I know).

The cabinets in this kitchen were made by Christiana Cabinetry (Pennsylvania). The cabinets were built from furniture maple, and the finish color is a custom white with a lightly-applied pewter glaze.

Thank you for the info. My kitchen was just completed yesterday after 4 1/2 months! I eventually went with a Shaw apron front sink with a 80/20 split. It was the only one I could find with that split. I certainly wanted something a little more decorative but it worked out just fine after receiving the 3rd sink! The first two were bowed out on the front. It was a long wait and I felt someone could have been more responsible in terms of quality control, but it turned out OK in the long run. Seems we both had trouble with quality. It is an unfortunate circumstance in today's world. Thanks again for the response.

Wow, that's interesting. We use Shaw's Fire clay sinks all the time, and we haven't had any issues. So maybe we were the exceptions who got the "lemons," you with Shaw's, and us with Masterpiece. We should probably go back and give them another try. At any rate, enjoy your new kitchen (we know you will!) and thank you for sharing your experiences.

Thank you for your question on this charming kitchen, and please accept my apologies for the delay in answering it. The bar stools were purchased from the catalog store "Frontgate" about 2 years ago, and our client re-upholstered them in a custom fabric once the kitchen was complete.

Sorry it's taken me so long to answer your question. As mentioned before, the countertops in this kitchen are not granite, but Michelangelo Marble with a polished finish. This particular client had a housekeeper who had been briefed on the appropriate care needed to take care of marble in a kitchen. But it's safe to say that not everyone has that level of luxury, and most people are at best uncomfortable with the challenges of using a calcium-based material in a room where many of the everyday substances are acidic (coffee, tomatoes, lemons, etc.).

Introducing ourselves as manufacturers and exporters of customized marble and glass mosaic patterns for flooring,mosaic rugs,medallions,boarders,murals,patterns for dome,patterns for swimming pools etc. Our production facility is based in Pakistan.
