Is your island custom or is that something that can be bought? I love it!

I'd venture to guess that's custom - it's walnut and very unusual with the waterfall countertop.

The walls and cabinets appear to be the same color (or very close to the same). Try using Pure White 7005 by Sherwin Williams.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheila Schmitz added this to Houzz Tour: A Little Cottage Grows Up
You can really see the effect of Bernstein's wall-opening campaign here. Where once a wall separated the dining room and kitchen, Bernstein added a bar counter; its raised Virginia granite backsplash serves as ample room divider. A narrow walnut butcher-block island adds work and storage space. Bernstein used soffits and storage to build balance and scale into the room. The tall cabinets to the right of the bar create the effect of a column.
