What color/brand stain was used for these cabinets?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

A breakfast nook takes up less space than a regular table and feels cozier to boot. "It's always a great choice under windows if you have an empty corner like that," says Islas. The seat cushions were tailored with a mattress edge for a detailed finish, and Islas found the perfect vintage 1920s light fixture at a nearby antiques store. Cabinetry: custom by Erica Islas; backsplash: Malecon and White Malecon field tile, Montecarlo Tile; countertop: Blizzard, Caesarstone
Teal cabinetry, tile, window seat fabric and furniture tie the room together. Matching knobs on some of the cabinets add a playful pop. See more of this kitchen
Vanessa Brunner added this to Get Ideas from 10 Kitchen Makeovers
AFTER: Designer Erica Islas knocked down the wall for a more open space. New color and material palettes honor the home's 1920s Spanish architectural roots. Tour the kitchen: 1920s Renovation in California
