A Warm Gray (Greige) Tudor Kitchen Remodel

Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter, White Dove & More…

When my client hired me to help her with the remodel of their lovely Tudor home, I KNEW something beautiful was about to happen.

When doing my Online Consultations, sometimes old finishes are in place and need to be accommodated, whereas other times, we have a FRESH new slate to work with. We were starting from scratch with this one – new finishes, new flooring, new husba…wait, the husband was staying.

LIVING ROOM KITCHEN BEFORE

My client had a VERY clear idea of where she wanted to head with things, had a great contractor (Lewis Remodelling), and hired me to help her pull it all together with colour. My first look at things involved a combination of Caesarstone Statuario Nuvo on the main countertops, along with a soapstone ISLAND countertop, as well as some other custom details (WAIT until you see the range hood). And while you MIGHT call me crazy (duly noted), I kindly suggested that the soapstone countertop was taking things too far.

Why?

Well, between the main cabinets (which we planned to paint a warm gray), the wood island, the STUNNING soapstone fireplace in the adjacent open layout living room and the WICKED gorgeous range hood, we had enough going on. In fact, I worried that the soapstone would tip the scales, overwhelming the space with variety, rather than keeping it classic.

I’m happy to say she agreed, and in the end, we’re BOTH super happy that the soapstone was kept to the fireplace surround. But boy oh boy, once she settled on her set finishes, the colours we landed on turned out to be JUST what was needed to turn this house renovation into a LOVELY home to live in.

Ready Betty (in homage to the late great Betty White)?

Let’s start in the kitchen…

We chose Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter (darkened by 25%) for the cabinets. My client had started with the idea of Benjamin Moore Edgecomb Gray, but with the countertop she chose, along with the James Mobly mural she was hoping for in the dining room, Edgecomb Gray leaned too warm.

Adjusting the cabinets to Revere Pewter and adding a wink of depth made for the PERFECT backdrop to the Caesarstone quartz countertops and wood island.

And while the combination of interior lighting and photography can throw colours off-whack a bit (super technical term), this next photo is a GREAT shot of Revere Pewter in action…

Swinging to the right, we see the bar area with an indiscreet stainless steel wine fridge. PERSONALLY, I’m not a huge fan of wine bottles on display, unless they’re in a dramatic feature piece or empty (wink wink).

THE WOOD KITCHEN ISLAND

The wood stain on the island is also the perfect complement to the wood floor. Whereas some wood islands COMPETE for attention, this bad boy is the perfect partner…

INTO THE LIVING ROOM…

At this point, you MIGHT be wondering what paint colour is on the walls? Or maybe you’re still mentally absorbing that range hood. Either way, the wall colour we chose was Benjamin Moore White Dove, the PERFECT warm white for this project, which is best showcased in the living area…

In these next photos, White Dove is looking FAR more creamy than it does in real life (it looks more like Sherwin Williams Creamy); the previous photo was a better representation. But all the same – HOLY FREAKIN’ CANNOLI!

And that ceiling. The subtle whitewash on the ceiling cuts the intensity of the wood stain back so nicely without it flashing too pink. However, with the flooring being red oak, this subtle undertone is NOT unwelcome…

Here’s another full shot looking from the kitchen back to the living area – MAD LOVE. And just spend some time with Benjamin Moore White Dove, with its passive warm glow (there’s good reason why it’s one of my fave shades of white). In fact, this next view is my fave of them all…

And I HAVE to share her pool table room with you, it’s the EPITOME of badassery…

THE FAMILY ROOM / POOL TABLE ROOM

Hey, is that really a knight playing peekaboo with me? DAMN STRAIGHT IT IS! Seriously, I’ve NEVER done a consultation where there’s a knight in play.

My client CLEARLY has a great sense of style and chose to wrap it all up in Benjamin Moore Stone Hearth, a colour you might be seeing more of as those trends lean warmer and warmer!
