Hi and thanks for the inquiry! The paint colour is a Benjamin Moore colour, Alexandria Beige, HC-77 Keep in mind that kitchen has a tremendous amount of natural light - in the right room, it's perfect. In a room with little light, it may be on the dark side.. An alternative to a room with little light would be another Benjamin Moore colour, Ranchwood, CC-500. If I can be of any further assistance, please don't hesitate to be in touch, T

Thank you for being in touch! The trim on the baseboards is Benjamin Moore "Cloud White". This is the colour I use most often for trim, crown moulding, etc. The paint colour on the builtins is also a Benjamin Moore colour, Elmira White, HC - 84. Hope this helps! Tammy

Hi Rich, Thanks for the inquiry - these cabinets came from Lowe's - you either build them yourself, or they will do it for you for a small fee. As you can see from the picture, they come in two different sizes and can be customized with respect to the arrangement that works best for the individual. On the other side of this garage (which you can't see) the two tall cabinets are placed side by side. Hope this helps! T

Good morning, and thank you for the inquiry! This is a cultured stone, "fieldstone" is the type of stone. It is available at a few different locations throughout Ontario - where are you located and I will try to find a dealer close to you. The colour you see in the picture will not be exactly the same as they tend to change dye lots and colours from time to time, and this fireplace was installed approximately 5 years ago. T

I'm in the Hamilton area. I've went to Stone Selex last week. They had a decent selection. I love the stone in your picture!! BEAUTIFUL!

On three walls, the paint colour is Benjamin Moore, Alexandria Beige. The feature wall (the wall with the big windows!) is another Benjamin Moore product, Manchester Tan. Hope that helps!

Beautiful outdoor fireplace. A 'Rumford' design which means the fireplace box is shallow so more heat is distributed outwards. Perfect for enjoying this fireplace almost year round in Ontario!
