Kitchen Countertops

white cabinetsBecause the kitchen is the heart of the house, it just tends to make sense that you want that area of the residence to exude a really feel that suits your personality and life style. In the kitchen of the Martha’s Vineyard retreat of Lynn Forester de Rothschild and her husband, Sir Evelyn, a Ralph Lauren Paint white was employed on the Rivkin/Weisman-designed cabinetry, and the antique granite flooring is from Exquisite Surfaces.

This variety of shower utilizes alcove shower head on the ceiling whilst the whole bathroom walls are covered with beige walls using large granite seeking tiles and a stone slab with an below mount sink and cabinets attached on the side of the sink.white cabinets

Here’s the fast and dirty run-down: small, L-shaped kitchen with white shaker style cabinets, oak wood butcher block countertops, a nice crisp white arctic white 3 by six subway tile backsplash and some black/some white appliances (not in a position to switch to stainless but but someday!!!) The floor is non-negotiable at the moment, in a neutral coloured tan ceramic tile.

Earlier I starting investigating the peeling problem and realized that it’s only in the areas that have a sheen and are exactly where the paint underneath is thick – on the sides by counters for example and tight regions – but the cabinets themselves are in excellent shape.

We chosen a slightly much more modern day shaped brushed nickel bin style pull from Restoration Hardware and some pretty gold patterned knobs and mercury glass knobs from Anthropologie, to bring a warm metal mix and exciting character to the cabinets.
