  • Cabinets: Mouser cabinetry in cream painted finish
  • Countertops:
    Minas Soapstone - still not oiled... I'm loving it! (When it gets dark spots on it from oils I just take a sponge with Dawn dish detergent and wipe it back to original blue.)
    Carrara Marble Counter on Knotty Alder Island
  • Backsplash: Krazy Krackle Cream subway tile backsplash. (Krazy Krackle is just the name from Sonoma Tile)
  • Sharp Microwave Drawer in island
  • AGA 6-4 Range (affectionately called Nigel now)
  • KitchenAid Fridge
  • Thermador wall oven
  • Oiled Bronze hardware from Colonial
  • Pendants: from Architects and Heroes - amber shades - from a store in Cape May NJ called 'Across the Way'.
  • Flooring: My floors were 'rescreened' but that was it. Those are original to the house so I don't know much about them as I'm not the first owner. Most likely pine.
  • Paint: from Finnaren & Haley Paint. 13 Independence Hall Quill and the trim (not pictured) is Galahad white.
  • The flip down over the computer is actually 4 'mailbox' compartments to hold bills, to do items, coupons, etc.
The ceilings are 9 feet, and the pendant lights are adjustable.
