What color is the wall color? I have a very similar look in my kitchen. I like the soft warmness to the walls.

The perimeter stone is actually honed pietra di cardosa, sealed/treated for a darker finish. The island slab is honed calacatta gold marble.

I heard that too, but I think it a) looks funny to have the hood wider than the range/cooktop, and b) isn't necessary if you have a decent hood/blower. Maybe with a grill you'd get more smoke, but I do plenty of searing and frying and my blower has been fine (even with the "obstruction" of a shelf above).

Thanks -- the subway tiles are just plain ol' white cheapies! Not from Home Depot but almost the same. (We compared both and thought the ones from the tile store felt a little more substantial, but they were very close.) It's the grey grout that creates the illusion.

Thank you for sharing, Sue! I have been wanting to ask about the recessed lights, too, but hesitant to bother you with another question after seeing tons of them. So glad sherkelsey asked, and of course thankful to see your advice to it! I was about to get "6 LED (looks too big and ugly), but so happy to see this site before I purchase. Everything you did on your kitchen looks so perfect and just beautiful. Thanks for your generosity to share precious and valuable advices! While there are hundreds of choices/products on almost anything in the kitchen, getting a hint of how it looks together from such a lovely kitchen truly, truly helps. I and my 5yr daugher became fan of your blog, too! Wishing you the best.

Hi again. What were you thoughts around not having any window treatment in particular for the bay window area? I have a similar bay window/bench seat (but smaller) and need to decide if I want some kind of window treatment-maybe faux roman shade. I have two side windows along my left wall and will probably put something up bc I need privacy but the back bay window area faces the back yard and a tree takes center stage. Thanks.

They're not UNcomfortable, but not what I'd call super comfortable either. They're a little cold, too. But, they're what we were looking for aesthetic-wise, and I also wanted something that didn't swivel or have backs because I was worried about kids banging up the marble.

Source of those stools? What I'm really wanting to find though is same shape w/wood seats (same concern you mentioned, cold surface, wood would be warmer and maybe a titch more comfortable) I may have to go with custom made one$, ouch. Thanks. Lovely kitchen.

Is the 12" overhand enough or do you wish it was deeper? Trying to make that decision currently. I can either extend my bar space out to 16" or double the thickness of my slab to 6cm but I can't do both. If 12" is enough that would be nice to know. Thanks!

From the picture, I would say this is a marble as opposed to a quartz. You can tell from the natural variation in color on the slab. Quartz products tend to be much more consistent throughout.

Subeeskitchen- I adore this kitchen you've created...just perfect, wish I could drop it in my house! Would love to know the paint colors you used on the walls and trim as well as the cabinets. Was also wondering about your subway tile, are they handmade? Or can you purchase them in a showroom, they seem to have a soft sheen to them- and is the grout a light grayish ? Love to hear!

My island and light pendants are very similar to this. We omitted the door knobs on the concealed cupboards so they look like panels. We opted for a push door effect and we are having three pendants rather than two as that size island (9') allows for an odd number. Love the bar stools

That looks like a marble. You should look at Quartzites. Quartzite is a natural stone (as opposed to man made "quartz") quarried like granite or marble. It tends to look like marble, but is usually stronger than granite. Here are three of my favorite quartzites:

OR if you just have to have marble in your kitchen, you could use solid marble as a backsplash for a more durable stone, like in this kitchen:

I would recommend quartz! I usually deal with Cambria(cambriausa.com) but quartz countertops have come along way with different design aspects. There are a lot of different designs to choose from some of which could come close to your marble look. My favorite from Cambria is New Quay! When choosing cambria you have available to your great customizable options in which most of the time can fit almost any budget. Also quartz is said to be as almost as hard as a diamond meaning that scratching or cutting into it would be rather hard.

If those are Hudson Valley Haverhill pendants as I suspect, the width is 16.5" and it comes with five different downrods: one each in 3", 6" and 12" lengths as well as two 18".

Futuro Futuro Kitchen Range Hoods
It's the same width, 48" from the looks of it. Depth-wise, impossible to tell from this angle, but many of the "box-style" undercabinet hoods are available in 24" - 27" depth.

Please note that with a hood that's as deep as the range, the probability of hitting one's head on it increases - which makes it necessary to place the hood higher (36" above the range at minimum) - which reduces performance - which partially defeats the purpose of having a deep range hood in the 1st place...

...this is why many European-style hoods (such as our Italian models) are made in the 18" - 20" depth range, so they can be installed in the area of maximum efficiency, without the hazard of intersecting with the chef's forehead.

Try Barn Light Electric, I know they carry a light that looks identical! I'll attach a photo, but here's the link to the light on their website: http://www.barnlightelectric.com/pendant-lighting/vintage-pendants/altamont-pendant-light-hudson-valley-vintage-lighting.html

Good luck!

Bay Window Size , Built in Cabinets with the Seat Cushions - Hi, Can you tell me the size of your Bay Window. Also, can you tell me about your bench seating inside the bay window...are those cabinets? who built them for you? Also, do you like your cushions in the bay window seats? Do they need to be firmer, have they lost their cushionyness, who do you recommend to go get cushions? Thanks!!!

Hi - Please refer back to the previously posted questions - I know there are a lot of them but all of your questions have been addressed. The cushions are quite firm - they're 3" foam wrapped in batting, and then the Sunbrella fabric holds up very well. If anything I wish they would soften a bit because they make the seat height a tiny bit too high. Definitely like having the custom cushions, though.

The chairs were from Restoration Hardware (10+ years ago). We had the slipcovers made by a local seamstress. Ordered the Sunbrella fabric from outdoorfabrics.com. Great fabric if you have kids - everything washes right out.

Wish the desk area could've been a little wider, so that at least one drawer could be wide enough for file folders. Also wish there was an overhang on the short ends of the marble, so that a bar stool could be brought around (better for conversation that 4 in a line).

Benjamin Moore Satin Impervo "White" is what we used on trim. Cabinetmaker had his own finish in "white". Also matches Benj. Moore "Super White".

This is closest picture as of now -- planning to post more soon on subeeskitchen.com (my food blog). There are electrical strips on each short end of the island (if you zoom this picture you might be able to see them.) There are also outlets inside each short-end cabinet -- one for the stand mixer (with lift) and one for the wireless printer)

The floor is fir (from Russia, because we spec'd long boards to match the rest of the house). It's stained in Puritan Pine ( I think). Not sure I would recommend fir, though, unless you had an open floor plan like we do and were trying to match old wood. (It's VERY soft.)

The cabinets and trim are pure white - no tint. (Trim color is the same throughout the house.) The wood floors and abundant natural light keep the room from feeling cold.

Fir floors - I understand his is fir to match, but can you tell me if it has a stain applied or is this natural colour? Also, any idea if it is VG old growth and the widths of board? I know the questions are pretty specific, but I really like this look with the white kitchen...

We specified long boards (again to match the old floors); these came from Russia (!). 2 1/4" wide. They are stained with MinWax Puritan Pine. Be warned that fir is very very soft -- it will have a "patina" in no time. You have to be prepared for this.

The knobs are very simple -- also RH, but I think they were "Aubrey". Finish for all is brushed.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to Create a 'Forever House' Connection
Expand and renovate ... or move? We require very different things of a home depending on our stage in life. A family growing and welcoming new children will need more space. Space needs may diminish again after retirement, and in our later years, mobility and accessibility are important factors to consider. So, when faced with these changes, do you adjust your home to fit your needs, or do you move on?
Laura Gaskill added this to Easy, Beautiful, Cheap: Managing the 3 Points of Home Projects
Easy + Beautiful = Not CheapIf you do have the funds or are willing to wait and save up, shopping smart for the things you love and hiring pros when needed will certainly make your life easier. It's important to be honest with yourself about your skills, determination and patience — perhaps a DIY kitchen remodel appeals to your frugal heart, but if you have zero carpentry skills and no strong desire to learn about plumbing, wiring and the like, a remodel is probably best left to the pros. Of course, when you are talking about a kitchen remodel, "easy" is a relative term!
Lisa Higgins added this to Dream Spaces: 12 Beautiful White Kitchens
This warm and welcoming kitchen, with its gleaming wood floors (long-plank fir finished with Minwax’s Puritan Pine), features an island covered in Calacatta gold marble. (Note the storage cabinets tucked behind the bar stools.) Other nice touches: the two large Hudson Valley Haverhill brushed-nickel pendants, classic Philippe Starck Emeco brushed-aluminum bar stools and contrasting gray countertops of Pietra del Cardoso.
Mitchell Parker added this to Houzz Call: Show Us the Photo That Inspired Your Project
Inspiration: Margaret Powers came across this photo while planning her home remodel, and it created a jumping-off point for opening up her floor plan with a new bump-out. “When I saw the photo, I instantly gained a vision for the odd bump-out on the side of the house,” Powers says. “Because of this photo, we made the bold move to remove the walls and pocket doors, and flood the whole downstairs with natural light. The image was embedded in my brain and was my reference point throughout the whole project.”
Laura Gaskill added this to Kitchen Island Stools and Pendants That Pair Up Perfectly
Vintage Glass Pendants + Metal StoolsVintage-style ribbed glass and brushed-nickel pendant lights pair up with classic Philippe Starck Emeco brushed-aluminum bar stools in this stunning kitchen from Pickell Architecture.
