Cabinet Color - Hello. Are the cabinets a custom color? Houzz includes a BM color for the lighter cabinets - but I was curious what the actual shade was. Thanks.

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!

I'm sorry, I'm not sure about the containers because they were purchased by my client, but the Container Store has some similar ones. 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!

Hi! So sorry for the delay in response. It's 26" in diameter. It's the Mr. Brown Galaxy Chandelier. We ordered ours with antique mirror tiles. You can find it on Chairish. Here's the link. Hope that helps!

Coordinating chandelier for dining area? - Hi, what type of chandelier would you use over a nearby dining table to coordinate with the orb chandelier? I noticed you don't have one in this home. Beautifully done project!! Thank you.

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 used a custom cabinet shop called J. Spix Fine Cabinetry in Sausalito. They build incredible cabinets.

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!

Becky Harris added this to Kitchen of the Week: Classic Style Creates Calm for a Busy Family
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. Paint by Benjamin Moore: Gray Owl (cabinets) and Whale Gray (island); Mr. Brown Galaxy Chandelier: Chairish; Pro 48 refrigerator-freezer with glass door: Sub-Zero; backsplash tile: Calacatta d’Oro, custom 3-by-12-inch size; cabinet hardware: Lugarno, Restoration Hardware
Mitchell Parker added this to 6 Ways to Spice Up Your Neutral Kitchen
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
