Paint color for gray cabinets - I love the use of gray as an alternative to white cabinets. Do you have the paint specifications for the gray cabinets?

Approximate dimensions? - I would be interested to know the approximate width of the room, and particularly the aisles. For example, I see that the window-wall counter has slightly less depth as compared to the sink. Is that purely an aesthetic decision? Or are the counters less than a standard 24" so as to maximize aisle width? This kitchen is really gorgeous in many regards. I particularly love the wine glass cabinet in front of the window as well as the cute pantry door. Job well done!

All cabs are 24" deep - sink area at 26" deep - purely aesthetic. Width between is 48". Just looks smaller due to picture angle I think. Thanks much.

Love the ceiling beams. Are they also ash with a clear finish?

The Range Wall Catches the SunriseTwo things drove the design of the range wall. One, the custom-framed, hand-plastered vent hood was meant to fade into the background, allowing the chevron backsplash pattern to be the star. Two, the designers wanted to let in the morning light on either side of the range. “We didn’t want there to be any dark corners in the kitchen,” Kruhoeffer says. So she put a window behind the cabinet to the right of the range. (When you open the cabinet doors you can see the window.) This cabinet sits atop the counter, contributing to the customized freestanding-furniture feel in the kitchen. The pulls are leather, a nod to the equestrian country idea. But First, CoffeeThe Kruhoeffers are big coffee drinkers, so she tucked a coffee and tea bar behind the cabinet doors on the right side of the refrigerator. The area includes a built-in espresso machine, lighting for those mornings when the couple are up before sunrise and custom pullouts for mugs, coffee and tea.Backsplash tile: Twill Chevron in Cotton, Knit collection, Walker Zanger

4. Contemporary Style: Cabinet SurpriseThis kitchen facing Lake Minnetonka in Minnesota is all about windows, so the homeowner, architect Laurie Kruhoeffer, concentrated upper cabinets on an interior wall. A tall countertop cabinet is the sole upper cabinet along the kitchen’s exterior walls.“We didn’t want there to be any dark corners in the kitchen,” Kruhoeffer says. So she designed a window that extends all the way behind the cabinet. When the solid wood doors on the bottom of the cabinet are open, they also offer a view of outdoors — a fun surprise.
