  • Hardware: Top Knobs Satin Nickel. Pulls M808-96, Knobs M326, Fridge Handles M808-12
  • Lighting:
    Hudson Valley Pelham Pendants in Aged Brass from Croft and
    Ceiling High Hats are LR6 LED lights from We're very happy with the lighting from these. Indistinguishable from incandescent and still dimmable.
  • Floor - wood to match rest of house. Varied plank with pegs. Stain is a mix of Minwax Provincial with Jacobean.
  • Paint - Benjamin Moore HC81 Manchester Tan. Trim is Linen White
  • Butler's Pantry: Same cabinetry as kitchen. Counters also honed Imperial Danby. Sink is Ticor bar sink, smallest they had, don't remember number.

  • Wine Fridge is Marvel - bought as a sample from appliance store
  • Undercounter Beverege(sp) Fridge from ULine with Crystal IceMaker, CLRC02175B00 - with cabinetry panel. Don't like this at all. The back keeps freezing up and then melting (have had service call) and the ice maker is incredibly noisy.
  • Lighting: Chandelier is Corbett Venetian 1 Light Ceiling Pendant 78-41 from Capitol Lighting. I love the Capitol Lighting website ( I ordered quite a few lights from them throughout the house and was very happy with their pricing and customer service.
  • Mudroom: Cabinets custom built and painted in semi-gloss BM Shadow (eggplant color). Washer and Dryer are Maytag Epic. Very happy with these. Floor is Charcoal Gray Slate from boxes of slate I picked up at Expo. Also very happy with this. The cubbies were custom built by my contractor.
  • Still have to get switch/outlet covers and window treatments and wall art. Otherwise so happy to be done!

I love your tile work. Could you identify the backsplash tile you have highlighted (the narrow pencil tile, etc). I would like to re-create this.

Thanks. Great job!
