  • Cabinets are custom made by a company called Schrader and Company. Awesome group to work with. http://www.schraderandco.com/
  • Main color is 'Ancestral' and fridge/oven wall is 'Graphite'. Both by Pratt & Lambert
    Wall color is 'Dorset Gold' by Benjamin Moore
  • Floors are Vermont Unfading Green slate. Rest of the house has 5" pine.
  • Fridge=Maytag
  • Wall oven=Fridigaire Convection
  • Micro=GE Profile Convection/Micro w/trim kit
  • Cooktop=GE Profile 36", 5 burner gas w/glass & stainless
  • Dishwasher=Bosch
  • Wine fridge=Everstar/Franklin Chef (Home Depot)
  • Sink is from Vermont Soapstone (24x20')
  • Faucet is Kohler Vinatta
  • Backsplash tiles are a combination of Vermont Soapstone & Tumbled Verde marble
  • Sink wall countertops are Boos Butcherblock
  • Island counters are Piracema soapstone from M. Tex in NJ.
  • Lighting is from Lowes
  • Stools from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop
  • Cabinet hardware is from Van Dyke's Restorers and the color is 'weathered nickel'. I love the combination of the silver & black tones that they have. Goes great with the black of the sink and countertop and the silver/stainless elsewhere.
The front and sides of the island are tongue and groove popular. I plan to paint or stain it, but not sure what color yet.
Love having mostly drawers in the base cabinets.
Love the pullout garbage/recycling bins (to left of sink)
Love having a walk-in pantry vs. more cabinets
Love having the fridge recessed in the wall to appear built-in.
Love all the appliances except for the French door fridge-left door is always being left ajar-and wine cooler. Wine cooler can't maintain lower temp on 'white wine' side and the alarm is always going off. Tried to save money ($500) here and it's showing...
We kept the spaces between the island and walls very large and are happy we did so. It's great for cooking and entertaining. Everyone sits at the island while I cook. So awesome!
