    I would use the same counter, I think. I might consider doing a very dark color on the cabinets - similar to the floor?

    I agree with HERE Design and Architecture. You've already got alot going on visually in this space, might not want to throw too much more at it.

    By the way, love the cabinet you've got under the counter at the end - very clever.

    Just saw this question. I don't remember the manufacturer, but, they are bin pulls in an oiled bronze finish.

    Wall color is Pratt and Lambert Downy Grey. We did not want a backsplash in most of this kitchen. It is open to the rest of the house so we wanted it to be less 'kitcheny' looking and there is hardly any wall in any case. There is one highly decorative backsplash behind where the person stood to take this picture.

    Sorry - I have just seen this question. It is Caesarstone Lagos Blue in a honed finish.

      Apron. You don't have to have a traditional-style kitchen to install an apron sink. These sinks have a decorative exposed front, called an apron. Contemporary colored cabinets contrast the old-world style of the apron farmhouse-style sink here. If you've decided that your new kitchen design calls for an apron sink, make sure to tell your kitchen designer right away. The dedicated base cabinet for this sink has to be custom made.

      This space is magical to me. It speaks to my love of color and of clean, open spaces with abundant natural light. The bank of painted wood windows is utterly charming, as is the farmhouse sink and graceful gooseneck faucet. It's a kitchen that must be an absolute pleasure to cook and entertain in.

      Instead of creating a full accent wall for a room, paint window frames in bright colors for an unexpected twist.

      To choose the color palette, Svoboda-Spanbock brought in five color boards for the couple to choose from. "At first I didn't like any of them," says Stephens. "Imagining this red right next to this green on a board just seemed like too much, but now I love it!"The couple was originally hesitant about the lime-green Goldenberry shade by Pratt & Lambert on all of the window and door frames. Svoboda-Spanbock explained that the view outside of this home is always green or brown. Framing the view with the lime green highlights the outdoor scenery.
