What We Love
Installing these cabinets up near the ceiling instantly lifts the eye, making a modest size kitchen appear lighter and more spacious. It also clears room for that backsplash you’ve been craving. Our clients ordered half a dozen tile samples but ultimately opted for a double coat of Benjamin Moore’s “Early Sunset” in semi-gloss from the Aura line: https://www.benjaminmoore.com/. The buttery smooth wash of color with just a hint of peachy-pink dynamically changes with the light of day, appearing almost white if it’s overcast and edging toward a warm blush-y hue on a late afternoon transitioning to dusk.
The cabinet doors are accented by polished bronze knobs from Yesterhome: https://www.yesterhome.com/ While brass hardware is ubiquitous in today’s kitchen renovations, and copper can often lean toward a rose gold hue not everyone favors, bronze was the stand-out choice for our clients. These knobs will naturally age over time, their patina gently changing to reflect the years of loving use.
