Yes, it is Resene Robin's Egg Blue. We used full in some places, half in others. You need to test samples for yourself in your light conditions as photographs cannot be relied upon

Love this kitchen! I am in the middle of remodeling and need to pick out hardware for my white cabinets. So tired of picking things out! Never thought I would say that! Would you please share the size of the cup pulls, 3 or 4 inches wide?

they don't have a lot of models, you go by size. the one in the kitchen is 760 mm wide, the one in the scullery is 610 mm wide

We're in New Zealand and the horizontal options are available here. You must have them too, just ask at an electrical supplier. And thank you for the compliment!

This question was answered previously as "The sink brand is Acquello." You can also purchase farmhouse sinks made in France, such as those by Herbeau.

it's a granite counter with a finish called leather, which is not smooth or glossy

the grout is light grey, for a subtle accent of the tiles but also to pick up the shine in the metal handles and fixtures

How do you (if at all) access the space in the corner? - Can you use the space in the corner or is that a dead area?

Hi, Cathy - the corner uses a Lemans, which is a special storage solution made by a company called Hafele. You can have your cabinet maker put in this, or any number of different blind corner solutions.

the floor is made of porcelain tile in a wood look and we used three different sizes, laid out in a planned "random" pattern. I don't know the brand sorry, just that it's Italian

I'm pretty sure it's full strength. The lighting in the photo makes it look lighter (see upper right corner which is darker). But you need to test the options for yourself in your environment

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Laura Gaskill added this to How to Stage Your Kitchen for a Home Sale
1. Have your kitchen professionally cleaned. Having a pro thoroughly clean your kitchen is one of the best investments you can make when preparing your home to sell. Yes, you could clean it yourself, but would it really look as good? A sparkling-clean kitchen is one that looks its best. 2. Be hyperaware of odors. Make sure all garbage, recycling and pet-related items are removed before showing your home, and take the time to clean inside and under the containers themselves. Run a lemon down your garbage disposal. Nothing turns off a potential buyer faster than a bad smell.3. Consider fresh paint. Aside from cleaning, painting will give you the biggest bang for your buck. Give your kitchen a new coat of paint in a hue that works with the color of your counters and cabinets — when in doubt, go with crisp white. Even if your kitchen was recently painted, take a close look at the walls and ceiling and touch up any imperfections, even tiny ones.Professional painters will knock this out in a few hours
Annie Thornton added this to How to Organize Kitchen Cabinets and Drawers for Good
2. Decide What to Keep and What to Part WithThe contents of your kitchen cabinets, like many storage cabinets around the house, are likely filled with items that you use often, but they’re also likely filled with even more items that you use rarely, if ever. Give yourself permission to let go of those unused items. Donate or give away what you can, recycling or throwing out anything you can’t, such as expired pantry items.Find a professional organizer to help with your kitchen project
