    How did you size the pulls v. the width of the cabinets. Really like you look and need to order my pulls this week.

    Sorry...I don't have info on the wall color...it was a verify in field moment. The countertop is honed basalt.
  • lisa huot

    The wall color looks different from photo to photo of the same kitchen so it might not look the color you think it does on your wall or your lighting based off the computer screen.

    If you paint your cabinets this same color, the Pale Avocado has other paler colors on the same color swatch, the one at the very end is almost cream, it would look great on a wall with this color combination.

    The walls look the color they do based on the cabinets around them and the lighting. the cabinets are Benjamin Moore's Stratton Blue (top) and Pale Avocado (bottom)

    This is a great kitchen. It works because the lime (pale avocado) is separated by the grey countertop so it isn't in your face. The lime is on the bottom as well, rather than the top, so again it isn't right in your face. Plus, the top is a very popular color that is often used for cabinets. This is featured on

    https://www.thisoldhouse.com/ideas/vintage-kitchen-gets-new-spirit

    On slide 7 you will see that the walls are more of a creamy beige than they look in other photos. YOU MUST TRY THE COLORS IN YOUR OWN SPACE. lighting, size of space and openness will determine how all the colors actually look.

    I have a kitchen that has a tall side cabinet so I can't use this as the lime is in your face. Trust me, I did try it by painting large samples of cardboard an putting them up. It looks awful in my space, but it is a very nice combination. I am just repainting old cabinets, and IKEA has laminate countertops that look like either wood or poured concrete. The wood veneer ones they have would almost have to be protected with Waterlox.

    if you are keen on this, it is a great color combination for the right space, and you can do this as a remodel for next to nothing if you are just trying to freshen up an old space on a tight budget.

    I am in downtown Washington DC, not CA, so I also don't have the sun all day. again you must look at how all the colors in your room play off each other along with the lighting.

    I work in an office all day, I am just working on my kitchen as a side project. my kitchen will have to be boring as I have extreme limitations on the size and amount of natural light as well as how it combines with the rest of the house, but this kitchen really looks nice together.

    Sarah, the architect firm, did a fantastic job. Every DYI person who sees this is thinking we need to just paint our old cabinets like that!

    I have same butcher block top with lip. You can order/buy it at IKEA. Very reasonably priced.. Its great because it protects my granite countertop.

    Sorry, no. It was purchased by the client.

    It looks like the Ikea Grundtal paper towel holder, which seems to have been discontinued.

    That is hard to estimate because of the total house renovation and addition.
  • Andrea

    the addition in my estimate was in the $800K range. If the kitchen was done on it's own probably $250 or more.

    We hired a professional color consultant for the cabinet colors but
    similar matches would be: Benjamin Moore, Stratton Blue (HC-142) for
    the upper cabinets and Benjamin Moore, Pale Avocado (2146-40) for the
    lower cabinets. The finish is satin. We always recommend three coats of paint, primer and two finish coats.

    Hello. There is 3'-5" in between the countertops. In between the island countertop and the refrigerator/pantry there is 3'-6 1/2".

    4. Get rid of lurking grime in the kitchen. You know those little cleaning tasks that are so easy to put off indefinitely? Sort of like getting your teeth cleaned, these tasks may cause dread but leave you feeling great when they're done. A half hour is all you probably need to speed through these less-than-glamorous kitchen cleaning tasks: Rinse out kitchen trash cans and recycling bins with soapy water, run a specialized coffeemaker cleaner or white vinegar through the coffeemaker (finish by running plain water through), and wipe down kitchen light fixtures and fans.

    These cabinets were never hideous, but they are so bright and beautiful in these colors. No one else has this exact kitchen.

    How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets1. Prep. Remove cabinet doors and drawers and give everything a good cleaning with TSP (TriSodium Phosphate), or a TSP alternative, to remove any grease or dirt.2. Patch. Fill in holes, dents or dings with a sandable, paintable wood filler.3. Sand. Sand all surfaces to be painted with medium-grit sandpaper. Follow up with a good wipedown with a dry cloth to remove all dust.

    Love these subdued selected colors. The wood ceiling adds so much warmth to the space.
