    thank you, I emailed the manufactor and hopefully will find a place that sells them locally! I love your design!

    I was able to find it on a website in USA, however the color looks really gray. In the picture the backsplash looks to be in the brown family as does the window treatment. Is the lighting off on the picture?

    Is that roman shade faux or truly functional? Do you think a Silhouette and a roman shade is too much? I've selected a fabric that I love for a roman shade, but I need to have privacy too (street facing window). Was wondering if both were overkill. Any suggestions to address the privacy issue?

    I would watch this video, David Benninghoff talks about different countertop materials.

    Does the designer invented this concept or just liked it ?!

    Sally, Take a look at Mt. Baker by Bosworth Hoedemaker on Houzz. The kitchen does have windows behind the countertop that are lower than counter height and there is discussion about it in the questiions and answers. Good luck.

    I've done many kitchens with this treatment.
    I would either run the countertop right into the window sill, or build a window well out of the countertop around each window

    I wouldn't hesitate to do soapstone with the herringbone. I like layering textures and colour/contrast.

    Soap stone looks pretty if it is maintained properly

    Do you know the cabinet heights?

    I'm sorry I don't have that info anymore but your cabinet maker should be able to work that out for you given whatever ceiling heights you have

    Where do you purchase all of the lovely vases and bowls inside the glass cabinets? Thank you.

    I bought them at a variety of local gift and antique shops- kind of all over the place.
    But I find that crate and barrel and pottery barn are a good source for that type of thing.

    There is one called pure wool matte that looks very similar if you see it in person,
  • kareneliza
    What material is the tile. The designer infers they are not marble in the comments but it is not completely clear. Are they wool matte porcelain?

    I had the chairs custom made. To be honest I have discovered that this particular fabric did not end up wearing well over time, so I don't want to recommend the name. It was a cream and grey pinstripe. I'm sure Robert Allen will have options.

    thank you!

    This kitchen was done before led tape lights became common! No, just puck lights.

            Laura Gaskill added this to Holiday Party Prep: Ready Your SpaceNov 11, 2013

            Invest in decor that will last. Want to avoid running out at the last minute for flowers to decorate the tables? Try using either real or fake boxwood topiaries instead. They look chic and festive, but they're not holiday-specific, so you can leave them out for months. Other long-lasting decor ideas: bowls of nuts in the shell; plain beeswax candles on a silver tray; pots of forced bulbs (they look fresh and beautiful even before they bloom).

            Kenny Grono added this to Contractor Tips: How to Install TileFeb 16, 2012

            Anyplace where tile meets a surface that may move — counters and tubs are good examples — you'll need to seal the joints with a flexible sealant instead of grout. For tubs, 100% silicone is best. For counters, get a caulk that is color matched to your grout, available from your tile dealer.More: How to Shop for TileStraight from Spain: Amazing New Trends in Tile

            The family is very busy and the kitchen is the hub of the household. "We wanted the kitchen to be functional with as much storage as possible without feeling overwhelming," Meisels says. "We were looking for light and airy, and running the cabinets right up to the ceiling utilized every square inch of storage while also creating the illusion of height. The glass cabinets are primarily for decorative display and break up the heaviness of all of the cabinetry. The reflection of glass adds a bit of sparkle as well."As for the backsplash: Why herringbone? "Everyone loves the herringbone!" Meisels says. "There seemed to be so much going on in this kitchen with the huge marble island and marble Sarinnen table (in the breakfast nook), so I was reluctant to use stone for the backsplash as well. A kitchen like this demanded a luxurious finish, so I used a simple tile but installed it in a sophisticated and interesting pattern."
