Our home is finally finished!!! Thank you all for your advice on the finish for my knobs and handles. After much agony I chose satin nickel. It went well with all of my stainless and my husband loved it. Enjoy the photos!!!

Beautiful kitchen. Can you fill us in on the details?

RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

I would love to know the paint color (walls) and the tile color. It's beautiful. My mother has Typhoon Bordeaux and it's just so beautiful though not in great condition. I don't think the place she got it from was a very good fabricator. But the stone itself is gorgeous. I love it. I will be going for a visit to her house to help her finish it all up with new paint and adding the backsplash. I only hope it looks as fabulous as yours! Your kitchen is just gorgeous. Thanks for sharing!

Enjoy!

RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Very nicely done! Love the mix of metals and gorgeous granite work perfect with the backsplash. Enjoy! The child climbing on your new cabinets at least had the good manners to take off their shoes first :)


 o

Stunning!

When you post the specs, please remember the floor :-)


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Such a beautiful space! Great job! I love how you had the hood stop with the cabs and finish it off with the same crown. Nice touch!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

It is really beautiful. You must be so pleased. Enjoy!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Absolutely beautiful! My first thought looking at pic #1 is how much I like the contrast of the dark pendants. Beautiful backsplash too.
Cute on the munchkin scaling the island on the last pic!
Yes, give us all the details...


 o

One more thing - the reverse osmosis faucet is by "Insinkerator" and it is the Indulge Antique model. It puts out both cold and hot water. The hot water comes out near boiling which will be wonderful when making tea. I am saying goodbye to my electric kettle.

RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Beautiful and inviting! Congratulations!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Just had to say that I love the feature with the kid climbing up on the island. Did that cost extra, or did they throw that in for free?


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Great job. Very pretty! Those TB slabs are just lovely. Thanks for sharing.

Can you tell us about your stools and pendants please?


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Just gorgeous! Really love those pendents over your island. The whole space is just stunning.

Can't help but covet your gorgeous ovens with the wonderfully aligned doors.


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Amazing kitchen, love the color. I also really love the flooring, looks great with the white. It'll look great once you get some accent pieces in there. Congrats. How high are your ceilings?


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Beautiful! Love your hood! I have the same faucet...I love it, it is a dream to use. Enjoy your lovely new kitchen!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Love the granite! very pretty kitchen


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Fantastic kitchen!

I have a silly question, what is the small stainless appliance to the right of your double oven?


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Oh beautiful! Love the whole package!!!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Gorgeous! I would love to know the dimensions of the kitchen and the island. Also, would love to know the specifics on the pendants.
Enjoy!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Beautiful Kitchen!! Could you give me the info. on the pendants.

Thanks.


 o

 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Congratulations on a gorgeous kitchen! The Typhoon Bordeax is perfect, just the right blend of movement and calm. Love your choices on your crowns and hood and the flooring sets it off so beautifully. Your son is adorable, such a wonderful age! Enjoy!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

I would also like to know where stools are from. Love them


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Love it - wow!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Love your kitchen! Lots of Wow going on, and the last picture is out of a magazine, especially with your child caught in the act!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Wow, Pemberly, beautiful kitchen (for what I'm sure is a beautiful house). If I could just make one suggestion: A low phaeton with a nice little pair of ponies would be the very thing.

Seriously, though, nice work!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Love it! When do you get to move in? I love the doors, they let in so much light, yet your kitchen is warm and classic.
Must be that wonderful counter!
Congrats!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

It is beautiful. I am sure you will love cooking and raising a family in there.
And yes, the joys of having a little boy. My son thinks the drawer pulls are like rungs on a ladder made especially for him to climb to the top of the island! Argh. I definitely did not think about that when I selected my hardware.


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Love the kitchen and the contrasting pendants. Really makes a beautiful space! Enjoy!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Beautiful kitchen!! Stunning. Another white kitchen to add to my list for when I finally get to paint my cabinets one day. I also have typhoon bordeaux. Thanks for posting! Really Gorgeous!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

pemberley - I saw your cabinets(Crystal)in a showroom today. I was very impressed with the finish, both inside and outside. Curious, how do you like the finish and construction of them? Did you look at any other cabinets before making your decision?

Congratulations on a very nice kitchen.


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Hello everyone! You all are so kind. Here are a few more answers to your questions.

The appliance next to the ovens is an ice maker. It makes perfect clear cubed ice. We had one in our former home and got spoiled. It is great for everyday and entertaining.

The island is 11 feet long.

The counter stools are from Pier One. I got them for $100 a piece.

The pendants are from Quorum International. The number is 803-12-86. It has no name.

I like the cabinets. And the construction is good. But what I like most is that our cabinet shop takes care of any issues I have with the cabinets immediately. They are known for amazing service. I also looked at 100% custom cabinets, Medallion Cabinets and Shiloh Cabinetry. Crystal had the best deal on inset cabinetry.

Finally, Colorfast, I love the Jane Austen reference:)

RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Every time I come across the "Universal Khaki" chip in the SW deck, it stops me cold.
I absolutely love it.
Since you happen to have the can (I hope still), would you mind telling me the colors used to mix it? I'm afraid in real life it'll have too much red in the mix.

I'm still fighting too much blue in my gray-greens and have my fingers crossed that the Khaki will work well in my MBR. TONS of natural light.

Very cool to see it in use, even if m monitor resolves everything pink.

Thank you so much and enjoy your fabulous kitchen!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

That is just beautiful! It is certainly going into my "inspiration kitchens" folder!!!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Beautiful - just perfect!!
I can't wait til we are finished!!!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

I have some ponies and a phaeton for you!!

Thanks for the details!

Nancy


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Beautiful! What are the dimensions of your kitchen?


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Pemberly, would have have time to check the can of Universal Khaki to see if it has any red in it?
I'd appreciate it.
Thank you,
Christine


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Pemberly - thanks for telling me about your ice maker. Honestly, I never considered getting one separate from the fridge but I'm sure i comes in handy!


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

Pemberly- stunning kitchen.what brand range insert do you have in the hood.CFM? Thanks


 o
RE: Finished Kitchen with Typhoon Bordeaux

So sorry I've been MIA!

The bar stools are Pier One.
The painter did not leave a paint can in the basement for the Universal Khaki. I know we just used the same formula SW makes except I had it mixed BM. So sorry I can't help more on this one.
The range insert is from Thermador.
The kitchen is approx. 20 ft x 10 ft.

We are moving into our new home tomorrow! SO excited. Thanks for all of your sweet comments.
