    BM's Owl Gray is the color for all of the cabinetry, uppers and lowers, except the island. It is all in one sheen as well- which is satin. Shadows, lighting, and reflection make such a huge impact on color- I could see how you might think there are a few different shades involved, but there aren't! Hope that helps!

    Good morning. Not sure what the question is here, but the tile is Calacata d'Oro in a 3x12 size, honed. Hope that helps!

    Thank you! Yes, the decorative lighting is such a challenge when you have a table adjacent to an island like this. I personally think it's best to let one take the emphasis over the other and place only can lighting over the other, probably the table like we did here, where you can always add candle holders or lanterns to the table. Otherwise you could do two or three pendants over one and one large fixture over the other. Hope that helps!

    We had it custom cut by Country Floors from 12x12 tiles, and as such it was $25 a square foot, pre-cut. Depending on the cost of tile installation labor in your area, it could cost less for your installer to cut it into that size for you from 12x12 Calacatta tiles which should cost quite a bit less. Hope that helps!

In this kitchen in Mill Valley, California, designer Leigha Heydt brought in varying tones of gray to create a soothing feel. Lighter gray cabinets and walls (both Gray Owl by Benjamin Moore) join a darker gray island (Whale Gray by Benjamin Moore), each playing off gray tones in the Calacatta d’Oro marble backsplash tile and countertop. This kitchen also incorporates elements that we’ll get to later: brass and wood accents.Tolix Marais counter stools: Design Within Reach; Mr. Brown Galaxy chandelier: Chairish; Pro 48 refrigerator-freezer with glass door: Sub-Zero; Lugarno cabinet hardware: Restoration HardwareSee more of this kitchen

One of Heydt’s main objectives was to create a more open feeling in the kitchen without the heavy cabinets that had previously surrounded the window. The new open shelves help keep the kitchen feeling lighter and not so closed-in. Heydt took the opportunity to extend the countertops’ Calacatta d’Oro marble upward with 3-by-12-inch tiles. “It was a great opportunity to add more texture,” she says. Wanting to avoid the typical three pendant lights over the island, Heydt opted for a smashing globe chandelier. It creates a focal point and can be enjoyed from the entire open space.

This is oro gold backsplash and is listed in general description as "white", so maybe doing this with the Pental Tobacco will be okay...hard to tell!
