Well, I sure am enjoying my new kitchen!! I finally have some pictures for you (in the After Kitchen folder on My Page). Thanks to every one of you for SO much help. You are all so great!

Here are the specs:

original Saltillo tile floor (circa 1970)
Brookhaven Colony Cherry cabinets with amber stain
Atlas Homewares Euro-Tech Band Pulls
Walker Zanger Tuscany travertine tile in pewter
Walker Zanger Shabui slate border
Vermont Soapstone countertops
original butcher block island with soapstone inset (new, to fill hole where cooktop used to be)
Franke PCX-120 LH double sink
Grohe LadyLux Cafe faucet
Tech Lighting pendant lights in Swan murano glass
Miele Incognito dishwasher with stainless steel panel
Subzero bottom freezer refrigerator
Wolf oven
Wolf gas cooktop
Bosch front load washer and dryer
Paint: Sherwin Williams and is either Restrained Gold or Mannered Gold, whichever is the darker of the two (they appear on the same color card). It is kind of mustard color...quite nice! The card has other shades that are nice too.

Thanks everyone! dktrahan, funny you should ask about the soapstone. It was ordered through a kitchen designer directly from Vermont Soapstone Company. The KD is Kitchen and Bath Concepts and they weren't too kean on ordering from them, but I insisted. All went well! The hood is Vent-a-hood and my husband only chose ONE thing and that was the warming lights/shelves. He really wanted them and they are pretty cool. Worked great this weekend with keeping pancakes warm until they were all cooked and we could eat together!

Thanks all!

We really do like the butcher block island, it was original and we decided to keep it. We had an electric cooktop that was in the island so keeping the original butcher block left us with a hole. So, we decided to have a soapstone piece made to fill the hole and use it for rolling pastry, pizza dough, etc. Works great and is right above the oven so we can put hot things right on it!

We love the reef tank, it is so cool. Those pictures are a bit old and it has evolved since then. It isn't as hard to maintain as we thought, but it does take a certain amount of education. I think the best advice is to do lots of research before and during the process. There is lots to learn, but it is interesting so we don't mind!
