What are the colors used on the cabinets? - I am looking to replicate this color. In your earlier comment you mention you started with a color similar to Benjamin Moore Gray Mist but that color is almost creme colored, not nearly as blue/green/gray as this picture. Do you know the exact color underneath the dark coffee glaze?

Hi Jenni. We love your work on this kitchen. What are these cabinets made of? Looks like wood. Any reason why wood over MDF for painted? We want wood but pros keep telling us to use MDF if painting due to cracking where the 5 piece door is put together. Thanks

Thank you! I am so glad you love it! It is true that painted wood in a 5 piece door will be more prone to cracking. With that said, these cabinets are painted birch and we use painted maple on a regular basis. (I have painted maple in my own kitchen.) MDF is also very vulnerable to moisture damage. I think it's a good idea to listen to your cabinet maker's advice. But there is nothing wrong with asking other cabinet makers to see what they think. Would a little crack at the joint drive you crazy? We designed the cabinets in these photos to have the patina and charm of older cabinetry.

This looks like a marble to me, maybe calacutta gold? This is the look I want for my bathroom counters but am finding this marble to be triple the price of granite. If there is a granite or some other material that looks like this I'd love to know what it is!

Thank you for your interest in our work! This granite is called Alamo, which was purchased in Portland and it isn't available here anymore. Often the same stone is given different names by different distributors so you may be able to find it. The color is cream with ochre, rust and light gray veining. The surface is honed--the polish is sanded off. We have seen slabs of Kashmir White that area little similar, but it's unusual to see a creamy white with movement that is soft and subtle. Please give us a call if we can help with your future projects.

Clarification: The base color is close to Benjamin Moore Classic Colors: Night Mist--not Gray Mist. It is a soft green/blue/gray. Sorry for the confusing info.

Thank you for your interest in our work. This cabinetry was all custom, and we didn't use chicken wire. However, the project file has been archived, so we're unable to provide any further information at this time. Please give us a call if we can be of help in the future!

Hello. We do not have that information. It was copper mesh, heavier than "chicken wire". We treated it to age ahead of its time and blend with the antiqued copper hood.

The hardware on the hutch is from Bosetti Marella by Classic Hardware. It is available at hardware showrooms and online.

Jason Ball at The Decorators Unlimited added this to 7 Ways to Make Your Glass Cabinets Shine
Use glass (or wire in this case) in a more functional area for a completely different look. Admittedly, his one might be a problem for those of us who are a little OCD. However, if you are fastidious enough, an open pantry can be quite art-like. All it takes is a little arranging to make it really work.
Lisa Frederick added this to So Your Style Is: Tuscan
Style Secret: Handmade PotteryTuscany is known for its ceramics cottage industry, from dishware to enormous garden planters and sculptural vases. Opt for ceramic pieces that share a similar look and feel, and mass them in the most appropriate spot: a patio, an open shelf, a mantelpiece. In the kitchen, they look just right when they're stuffed with wooden spoons and cooking utensils; in the bedroom, use them to hold fresh wildflowers.Bella Tuscany: Accessories such as this can give a room a Tuscan spin even if its bones are less obviously Italian. Pottery in this kitchen hutch, which has a basic, clean design, glows against the dusky green and infuses a Tuscan aura.

74. Designer Jenni Leasia created a custom paint mix with a dark brown glaze rubbed on it for these cabinets.
