I just want to thank you for answering so many reader questions. Most designers do not and you are a breath of fresh air.

The lights are made of brass with copper. reflectors There is no applied finish on them, they are old so the copper has oxizided and turned darker in the typical way (like a penny).

Those are traditional bin pulls in a satin nickel finish. You can get them from a number of vendors who sell traditionally-styled hardware

Take a look at these similar colors: Super White (cabinets and trim) and Man On The Moon OC-106 by Benjamin Moore.

I don't have a record of the paint colors but I do know the photo makes the walls and ceiling look a bit more yellow than they really are.

We designed this custom cabinetry using traditional details and had it custom made at a local millwork shop. The bin pulls, latches and handles are also very traditional styles which a few manufacturers still make.

The baskets are for root vegetables like onions and potatoes. The rest of the storage is fairly typical such as drawers for utensils and a cabinet under the prep sink.

How tall is the ceiling and upper cabinets? - I have a kitchen with a 9' ceiling and want to take the upper cabinets to the ceiling without having two rows of upper cabinets.. The upper cabinet doors will be between 45" and 48" tall.

These upper cabinet doors were at least 48" tall if I recall correctly since the ceiling is almost 10 feet. They are not a standard cabinet door however. They are made with 1-1/8" thk (5/4 nominal) poplar instead of the typical 3/4" thick (4/4 nominal) lumber. I would not recommend doors that tall using 3/4" thick material since they will be too flimsy.

It's a very dark green granite with black flecks that was marketed under the name "Laurentian Green".

Those beautiful lights!!! I am 4 months into a major addition kitchen - I went to www.bigshipsalvage.com and bought two. I then had Metal Man Restoration in Mount Vernon NY restore them. They are magnificent. We just passed electrical inspection so Sheetrock is coming and my pendants will be hung!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Ten Ways to Use Baskets Around the House
7. As drawers that add texture.
Erika Ward - Erika Ward Interiors added this to 8 Ways to Decorate For Kate Middleton and Prince William
This well-appointed kitchen has a unique flavor of its own. It offers a balanced blend of country and traditional design that is satisfying to any palate. The pendant lights have the luster of Prince William's flight wings and adds an industrial feel to the space. Sprinkled throughout the kitchen are Kate-inspired touches such as the crewel fabric on roman shades and dainty china behind the glass doors.
Lisa Frederick added this to What to Consider Before You Buy Vintage Lighting
Consider hiring an appraiser. Even if you're confident in your lighting retailer, it can be wise to seek a second opinion, especially if you're shelling out a lot of cash. Not only can a professional appraiser confirm the maker, period, materials and value of your lamp, but his or her written documentation is helpful for insurance records. Ask your dealer or check the American Society of Appraisers for a pro in your area.Have the wiring and circuitry checked. After you've purchased your vintage chandelier, sconces or other lighting, take it to a licensed electrician for an opinion on the soundness of the wiring. Pieces that are more than four or five decades old likely won't follow today's safety or compatibility standards, and even newer fixtures may have frayed cables or other danger spots.
