A faint seafoam color adorns the walls, ceiling, backsplash and upper cabinet faces. For the backsplash King used glass tile in a stacked pattern to create a more contemporary look. She switched the pattern to vertical over the range and used the same tile in a wavy texture to mix things up. She then found outlets by Lutron that closely matched the tile color. Turning the outlets sideways made them more discreet.When King couldn’t find grout to match the color of the tile, she discovered Grout Shields, a company that would create a custom grout sealer matched to any Benjamin Moore color. She applied porous, unsealed white grout and then paid an artist to come in and use a small paintbrush to apply the colored stainproof sealer on top. “The grout was cheap in material cost but expensive in labor,” she says. “But totally worth it in the end.”LED strip lighting under the cabinets highlights the backsplash. King says she prefers to install lights in kitchens that are 3,000 Kelvin. “I’ve found this amount renders nicely. It’s not too warm or cold,” she says. The opaque panels on the upper cabinets are Lustrolite, a scratch-resistant, acrylic-like material.“It also works better than a whiteboard,” King says. “I’ve used it in showers, as a barn door in my office; it’s my designer secret.” Backsplash tile: Crystile Wave series and Crystile series, 4 by 12 inches, both in Soft Mint; cooktop: 36-inch DCS, Fisher & Paykel; range hood: Whirlpool; flush-mount lights: Nuvo; opaque panels: Lustrolite in Glacier A Chromecraft table from the 1950s adds a retro touch to the breakfast area. King added a navy accent wall to give more prominence to a midcentury-style clock that Tom built based on an image Kathy found online. Additional pantry space is on either side of the banquette, the cushion of which Kathy covered in outdoor fabric.
