Sorry, the plans are not available. It was a remodel to a private residence. Best of luck!

Thank you! The countertop material is a marble called Calacatta D'Oro otherwise known as Calacatta Gold Marble. It is a grey and white marble with gold, tan, and green veining. The amount and proportion of color varies per batch. The same stone was used on the tile backsplash and inside the open shelves. Hope this helps!

I'm sorry I don't know the stain color. We matched an existing color throughout the home, so it was a custom match.

Thank you for looking! The island color is Benjamin Moore's 'Whale Gray', and the cabinets, walls and trim are Benjamin Moore 'Gray Owl'. I love how the chairs Ben picked coordinate so well with these colors!

It does, thank you! Would you happen to know what the distance is from the countertop to where the window sill starts? Thank you again

The distance from the window to the counter is very low, about 1", which I love. Basically we made it just high enough to make sure the counter would not get above the window somehow. The plugs are installed to the left and right of the sink, instead of on the wall behind. Good luck to you!

Thank you! We purchased the backsplash tile from Country Floors. We asked them to cut the 3x12 tiles for us out of honed 12x12 Calacatta marble tiles. Hope that helps!

Hello, I'm sorry I missed this question last week. I don't know the name of the stain color as it was an existing color throughout the home and we just asked the flooring installer to match it. It looks something like the Du Chateau Lyon Floor below. Best of luck! Leigha

Thank you! I "tagged" all of the colors, finishes, and fixtures in the Project photos. Sometimes the "tags" can be difficult to find. If you go back to the Project on my Houzz page, and then click on a photo, you will see a "TAG" icon for the photo appear at the bottom of the photo. Once you click on that icon you will see a bunch of green tags pop up on the photo. Each tag has item information and sometimes even links for purchasing. Also, you can read the Houzz feature on that project for more information. All of that has way more information than I could ever reply in one post! Hope that helps! :)

I assume you are asking about the windows at the sink? They are 5' tall including the transoms which are 1'-1" tall themselves. The project was a remodel and that was the maximum height we had available due to a structural beam above the transoms. If I had designed the home from scratch, I would have matched the transom height over the sink with the transoms over the pocket doors to the left of the refrigerator. Hope that helps!

Good morning! The cabinet hardware is from Restoration Hardware. We selected the Lugarno pulls in the 8" size and the Lugarno knobs in the 1" size- both in polished nickel. Hope that helps!

Ceiling paint and intensity of Gray owl? - Absolutely gorgeous kitchen! Can you please tell me what was used for the ceiling paint color? Also, did you lighten the intensity of the Gray Owl on the cabinets? It looks much lighter than my eye sees it, but maybe it's all the windows....thanks in advance!

Hi! We used BM- Pure White in Flat on the ceiling and we did not lighten the Gray Owl on the cabinets. We used it as is! It is probably all of the natural light in the room that you are seeing as you mentioned. Hope that helps!

Thank you! It is painted in the standard BM whale gray color in a satin sheen. Perhaps the sheen is making it appear darker to you.

Thank you! The cabinets were fabricated by J. Spix Fine Cabinets in Sausalito. They were finished by Swift Finishing Inc. in Petaluma. J. Spix normally works for architects and builders, off of already completed design drawings, and Swift normally gets hired by the cabinet fabricator. Hope that helps!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Kitchen of the Week: Classic Style Creates Calm for a Busy Family
AFTER: The kitchen is wide open to the informal dining area and the family room, so the look of the three spaces needed to be cohesive. “We went for classic, timeless style because it fit their Shingle-style home and so it wouldn’t go out of style,” Heydt says. “The family has a very hectic schedule, so they really needed the space to feel calm.” Light gray walls continue from the cabinets to the walls throughout the space, with a darker paint on the island adding a grounding accent. The dining area seats the whole family, who enjoy most of their meals together here every day. A mix of woven French cafe chairs and slipcovered host and hostess chairs adds comfort, texture and color. Tolix Marais counter stools: Design Within Reach
Becky Harris added this to The 20 Most Popular Kitchen Photos of 2015
Kitchens that are part of an open plan. When creating kitchens like this one, which is open to the dining area — and beyond that, the living room — designers had to consider what the views would be like from one space to the next. Using a statement light fixture in lieu of a line of small pendants created a focal point in the long space. Open shelves viewed from the other rooms help the kitchen blend in with the adjacent dining and living room areas. Light fixture: Mr. Brown Galaxy Pendant; chevron Riviera side chairs: Serena & Lily

Mitchell Parker added this to 6 Ways to Spice Up Your Neutral Kitchen
1. Vary the neutrals. Homeowners enthusiastic about an all-white kitchen sometimes are surprised by just how much white that really is. That’s why designers know to play with a richer mix of hues that offer a bit of interest to the eye while still maintaining neutrality.
