    Thanks - it looks great… do you know the homeowner's experience from enhancing it? I'm hoping that stops the fingermarks etc that people complain about with honed black granite

    Depending on the wood species you are working with, either jacobean, ebony or a combination of the two. You’ll need someone to create some samples for you to look at.

    Linda is spot on with her recommendation. As a flooring maker I would sugest the same thing.

    I'm curious about the viking gas cooktop, how efficient is the downdraft ? I am updating our kitchen and plan on a gas cooktop in the island would prefer not to have a vent hood blocking views. Any feedback on this would be helpful. Thanks

  • PRO

    Hoods are always more efficient than down drafts. We always recommend that you speak with your appliance supplier. There are many variables to consider such as type of cooking (light cooking, lots of frying, stove top grilling etc), CFM (cubic feet per minute of air suction), etc. In this home, an updraft hood was not possible due to the rooms above the kitchen.

    The floors are reclaimed heart pine with a dark custom stain. We do not have the exact specifications of the stain as these were pre-existing floors, but we would recomend either jacobean, ebony or a combination of the two depending on the wood species you are working with. Hope that helps!

  • Hillary M

    Thanks Linda. The wood is red oak. We've been eyeing Jacobean. Thanks!

    When painting the wood on an island, how do you avoid paint chipping? Also, is the paint finish eggshell? Semi gloss? Flat? Any suggestions?
  • PRO
    Linda McDougald Design | Postcard from Paris Home
    We would recommend using a professional for this type of work. Typically, they would prep the surface by sanding it, then priming it prior to painting it. We like a satin finish sprayed.

    This is a Viking downdraft cooktop so it is made to work without a hood. I would recommend speaking with an appliance specialist to determine what the best options would be.
  • brebrewawa787878

    How is the single post leg attached to island top or is it attached to floor? I have one being installed next week, but cabs were not fabbed for apron underneath granite.

  • PRO
    Linda McDougald Design | Postcard from Paris Home
    They are separate Viking unites. It does not look like there is cabinetry between them; however, we would recommend installing them as directed by the manufacturer.

    I love your work. So clean, crisp, peaceful, we use you as inspiration for what we are attempting to do. Thank you. With that said, if I may pick your brain with this question. How do you identify the best wall color to tile relationship in order to produce the themes in your designs which seems to be clean, crisp, peaceful?
  • PRO
    Linda McDougald Design | Postcard from Paris Home
    Depending on the situation. Best case scenario I would recommend selecting the paint last. There is an unlimited number of paint options out there but tile and all other materials are much more limited. You can always find a paint or have a custom one mixed to complement your design. It is much more difficult to find tile or stone to work with a given paint color.

    Does the downdraft system effect the flames....does it pull them like my Jen Aire?
  • PRO

    It should not effect the flame. I would recommend speaking to an appliance specialist to select the appropriate down draft for the cooktop.

    This cooktop is a Viking downdraft, which eliminates smoke and odors.

    I am contemplating between a Viking downdraft and a Best Cattura one. What decision process did you go through to finally decide on the BEST Cattura? Thank you for sharing the pros and cons.

    oprf918, we borrowed a lot from the black counter and white/off white cabinets, much more from your projects. Thank you for being generous with your time. Your responses are very helpful. We'll try the Benjamin Moore paint. Thank you again!

7. Countertops. If you think black cabinets and backsplashes are too bold, your counters are a good middle-of-the-road option. Black countertops can tie together a crisp black-and-white color scheme, and you can find them in a variety of materials, including granite, quartz and soapstone.

Laura Gaskill added this to What Goes With Granite Counters?Jul 1, 2014

5. ‘Greige’ and white. Honed black granite counters like the ones shown here look sleek and stunning when paired with white cabinetry, wood floors and warm greige walls.Cabinet paint: Pure White satin, Sherwin-Williams

minimal gray and white in kitchen. white cabinets and trim will bring spaces with white trim and white ceilings together for cohesive look.
