    From my experience the beveled tile has a higher material cost and tend to be a bit thicker than squared edge ( 3/8") subway in order to achieve the reveal.

    I have honed Calacatta marble and it looks just like that. Just a bit of sheen.

    Does it stain as easily as regular marble?

    We are doing our kitchen over and I just love the Carrara marble. Is here something similar in granit? I have heard marble is difficult to maintain. Thanks

    We've had a regular microwave cubby in this spot for 20 years without incidence and have always loved it! Older children can easily use it, but never leave a hot item unattended if there is a toddler in the house! I know of a two year old that opened the door when his mom was distracted and spilled hot water down his belly. It was very painful and caused serious burns requiring a trip to the ER and weeks of care, etc. It was easy to re-adapt a new microwave in the space when the first one died! Our regular microwave opens out to the side. This is a great location for wheelchair clients,too!

    I had the doors and drawer fronts of my maple cabinets professionally lacquered and matched the trim with oil based paint. They look like new cabinets. The lacquer job wasn't that expensive.

    Erin, the color is Benjamin Moore "White Dove" for the cabinets. Unfortunately, we do not have the wall color on file anymore but it is also a Benjamin Moore color.

    The cabinet color is the Benjamin Moore "white dove". Unfortunately, we do not have the wall color on file. But, it was also a Benjamin Moore color. Apologize for the delay in response.

    Without knowing the pendant diameter just yet, I will advise you to space the ceiling electrical boxes 30" apart. Can't go wrong.

    The kitchen is 20'Lx14'W not including the nook seating area (6'x12') featured in the background. The island is 8'Lx3'W. I apologize for the delay in response - we had to dig the dimensions out of the archives.

    Hi Andre, this project was completed a number of years ago and we no longer have the details of who the supplier was. These cabinets were custom built for our client. You can contact Gast Architects ( and reference the "Buena Vista Residence" to see if they still have the contractor on file. A good cabinet maker would be able to recreate this from the pictures as well. Good luck!

    I would look for a local upholsterer. Lots of fabric shops also have design centers where they can take care of this thing for you. This way you can have cushions for whatever dimensions you desire on your bench, rather than feeling forced to make it some standard cushion size.

    Not sure that I would define them as practical, but they are beautiful! If it is in the budget, I say go for it! Especially it the treatment ties into other areas well.
