Also I would love to know the type of finish the paint has on the walls. Eg, semi Gloss or...?

Sure thing. The tile is from Architectural Ceramic's own line (AC Collections) and it's called the Naturals Collection.

Is there any edging on the tiles? And what is the colour of the grout? It looks white?

No, there is no edging on the tile. Yes, the grout is white.

Aubrey Pulls - We are considering putting Aubrey pulls in our new kitchen. Our contractor just informed us that since they don't bolt the cabinet together it may not be a good solution. Have you had trouble with Aubrey pulls coming off? Thanks in advance!

Lighting(One) of Cincinnati
Hi, from the glare off the glass it's a bit difficult to tell but I believe the sconces are by Alico. I have placed a link below with more product information. Hope this helps.

Could you please advise if the stained glass window above the sink used to be a regular outdoor window? tell - Did the stained glass window replace a window formerly to the outside of the house? We built a room adjacent to our kitchen and left the old window there but wish to replace it with something that looks good from both the "new room" and the kitchen and we are reluctant to just put in a white drab wall. The window in your picture is lovely.

Thank you for your comments. The window you are seeing is actually just a standard clear glass window - not stained glass. I think the foliage outside and the items on the sill are just giving it the look of stained glass. It sounds like a lovely idea though!

The paint on the walls is Benjamin Moore's "Hepplewhite Ivory" (HC-36). The cabinets are Brookhaven by Wood-Mode and the color is called Slate.

I just purchased these exact stools from PB. They appear to be well made but they don't swivel...FYI. The cushion is a plain cream fabric so I am planning on recovering in the future.

Such beautiful colours! - My question is regarding the paint on the cabinets. I know it’s a Benjamin Moore Alpine White, but there are actually 2 Alpine Whites at Benjamin Moore. Could you please tell me which you used and what is the finish on the cabinets? I keep getting drawn back to these beautiful colors on your design. Thank you.

Could AC feature this project on our blog? - Nadia, I was wondering if we could chat about this and your other Bethesda bathroom project that uses our Naturals glass collection from Architectural Ceramics. I've been with AC for five years now, and started in sales at the Bethesda showroom. Now, I'm living in Spain with my husband and write AC's blog. Please let me know if you're interested in speaking more. My email, is libby@architecturalceramics.com. I would have used your website to reach out, but I'm not currently renovating my home. Thank you for your time, Libby D.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Frederick added this to 10 Ways to Make a Small Kitchen Feel Bigger
10. Flood the space with light. Whether your kitchen is done in pale colors or dark ones, light beaming in will help it feel as large as possible. Keep window treatments very simple, or eliminate them entirely, so as not to block the sun.More: 17 Space-Saving Solutions for Small Kitchens
Laura Gaskill added this to Take Ownership of Your Rental's Green Factor
16. Check if your utility company offers a "green power" option. Some cities are now offering renewable energy. If it is available in your area, it would mean that part or all of your electricity could be purchased from wind farms and other renewable sources.
