    I'll bet the cabinets are BM Mayonnaise and the walls are Farrow and Ball Tallow. The ceiling maybe Decorator White

    Is the tin ceiling original? I'm guessing yes...I have similar brownstone and am wondering what to do with ceiling. We're bringing it back up to its original height. I am entertaining the idea of putting in a new tin ceiling and painting it, but am afraid it's going to look new and cheap/cheezy. This is beautiful, obviously!

    Is that "side to side" mean wall to wall, or 17' floor space?
    Thanks for answering, this is the model for our new kitchen.

    Hi- It is 17'-1" wall to wall- from the wall above the pantry / bookshelves to the wall (not in the picture) behind the range. It is closer to 16'-6" from the fireplace to the wall behind the range. Good luck with the kitchen!

    I think it was Benjamin Moore Decorator's White but I'm not 100% on that...
  • maciezack
    Is the fireplace working or has the hearth simply been bricked in and is now decorative?

    I believe we salvaged this from the rear facade to re-use / patch the existing chimney. Its old brick.
  • Patti Gaita McCartney

    did you do anything with the grout to make it look like copper patina? the bricks give the impression that they are colorful...i would love to do this to the brick in my kitchen.

    Benjamin Moore 'Mayonnaise'
  • cjgiragos
    Just beautiful! Is there any clarification on the wall color and cabinet color ? Are
    They both BM mayonnaise? The website hyperlinks show them as such but the comments herein state somewhat different combos. I am I the middle of one of those
    Last minute decisions for a family room with a similar fireplace and built ins on either
    Side which we are painting. Need ideas for cabinet and wall colors ASAP!

    Hi- the cabinets, I believe, are Benjamin Moore, OC-85 (Mayonnaise). The walls may be Farrow and Ball 203 (Tallow). I'm not sure as there were a lot of rapid-fire last minute changes on some paint colors and they were all selected by the owners, I hope this helps...
  • PRO
    Ben Herzog
    I think I may have been in error 17 minutes ago- the walls may be the Mayonnaise color and we may have gone to good old Decorator's White with the cabinets. Confirm you like what you see when you get a sample!

    Hi- those are natural bricks but some of them were there and some of them were from other places which gives the color variation. No paints were used on them.
  • terriebracke
    Thanks , I think I'm going to try and dab colors on still and brighten the dark brown grout to enhance it. I love the variations in that. Great job on the whole kitchen!

    Sorry for the late response. I don't know any sources in that area.
    We used to use AA Abingdon in this (NYC) area but I think they have closed down. You could try Shanker Industries on the web:
    I have not done any business with them and I am not sure what the shipping rates will be to TX. Good luck!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to Simple Pleasures: Get Cozy on a Cold DayJan 7, 2014

5. Take refuge in your kitchen. If your home is drafty and hard to warm up, turn to your oven. Challenge yourself to try something new, like baking bread from scratch — your kitchen will get nice and toasty, and your whole house will smell delicious.

Laura Gaskill added this to Original Home Details: What to Keep, What to Cast OffSep 25, 2013

Plumbing and electrical updates. In addition to structural issues, if your old home has very old wiring or plumbing, leaving it as is can be unsafe. Bringing all of your electrical work up to code and having copper pipes installed will help protect your home and family.

Lisa Frederick added this to Kitchen Workbook: 8 Elements of a Farmhouse KitchenApr 11, 2012

5. A fireplace. Nothing makes a kitchen feel cozier than a fireplace, and in old farmhouse kitchens, the hearth formed a central gathering spot. Even if you can't install a working fireplace in your space, you can approximate the look by bricking in a section of the wall or mounting a mantelpiece and surround for decorative displays.

Becky Harris added this to 20 of the Coziest Kitchens AroundDec 15, 2011

Of course, no element could add more coziness than a warm brick hearth with a blazing fire. See the rest of this house

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Brooklyn Townhouse Full of LightDec 12, 2011

Although many of the original details of the house were toned down, some of the existing work was left in the kitchen and the living room. The brick on this wall in the kitchen and dining room is from the home's original chimney. However, it needed a lot of work, so some old brick was patched in. The molded ceiling is actually made out of tin, and is also from the original structure. Table: Antique, Twin Fires BarnChairs: Antique, found at Harwinton Antiques FairPendant: Flos Romeo Moon S2
