    We have had our soapstone for about 10 years and we love it. It feels great to the touch, you never have to worry about stains. We have a lot of veins and they are more prone to scratches, but we like the lived in casual look and they can be easily buffed out. Would do it again.

    You can use organic soapstone wax/oil to age (darken) the soapstone, but is not always necessary if you want it to patina naturally. If soapstone scratches, it can easily be repaired just by sanding off the scratch. Because soapstone is impermeable, it doesn't stain and it's easy to clean.

    Did you use Simply White on the molding and trim in this house as well? Thank you!

    Do you use aura or advance paint

    I'm curious too! We're planning to paint our cabinets Benjamin Moore Simply White and I'm wondering about subway tile color to coordinate. Black granite counters and hardwood floors just like this. Advice?

    Any advice for backsplash tile selection with Simply White and black granite? thanks!

    Fot this treatment we ask for an "eased edge" meaning, the sharp corners are softened.

    Love your kitchen. Can you tell me the color on the ceiling?

    Hello and thank you for your interest and your kind comments. I am certain the single stool was an antique piece and it was selected by our design partner on the project, Darryl Carter.

    We have the self vented cook top (have to for fire codes) but I hate it because it is so noisy that we hardly ever use it, and now the buttons don't work well, so you have to fight with it to go up or down. Ours is a Dacor.

    The Pedant was procured by the interior designer Darryl Carter and I unfortunately do not have the name.

    We believe it is a soapstone from Brazil. However a couple things of note. Since they are a natural material the stone can vary greatly depending on where in the cliff it is cut; And that names of slabs change at the whim of the supplier. Finally, know that here in DC, the exact same stone can be given two different names by two different suppliers that are right down the street from each other.

    The lack of name can be attributed to our procedure: It is standard procedure to go to a supplier to select the exact slabs which are paid for and initialed at the time. BTW they just throw away the stone at the hole for the sink goes. Ask then to make a trivet out of that piece. It is an exact match!

    For wood floors, I presently have a preference of a dark or medium dark floor. But they this decision shouldn't be decided in a vacuum. It is best with a lighter trim as it make a crisp "pop" for the trim when it is against it. It also informs wall colora which you my want to tint (make lighter). Area rugs are an important other factor. For dark floors choose sea grasses or sisals or other lighter similars. This backdrop formula is often used throughout my portfolio.

            How to embrace easygoing off-white. Warmer and more welcoming than stark white, this creamy hue is easy to work with — and also happens to be right on-trend, with both Benjamin Moore and Glidden choosing off-white as their “color of the year” for 2016.Tips:Use off-white to warm up a white kitchen — it’s more forgiving than clear or cool-toned white.Pair creamy off-white with a range of other neutrals like gray and brown for a rich, timeless look.Play up interesting architectural details by painting an entire room in crisp off-white.Guide: Color of the Year: Off-White Is On-Trend for 2016Cabinet paint color: Simply White, Benjamin Moore

            I tend to be drawn to colorful interiors but can still appreciate an all-white space that’s done well, such as this kitchen. The cabinets, painted in Benjamin Moore’s Simply White, are simply beautiful. Benjamin Moore has been slowly but surely moving toward softer and lighter hues with its “color of the year” selections. In 2014, Benjamin Moore’s pick was the subtle sky blue Breath of Fresh Air, and last year, it chose the light and neutral Guilford Green. Simply White is perhaps the next logical choice in Benjamin Moore’s evolution toward barely there, wispy hues. Unlike color management company Pantone’s recent selections, these shades are soft and neutral enough to be used generously in a space, rather than as a small accent only.
