Nantucket Inspired Kitchen | Custom Color Match

Here at Details, we want each one of our clients to have a kitchen that is unlike any other. We love that our custom cabinet line, Plain & Fancy, allows us to color match pretty much any piece of inspiration. We are now excited to announce that our semi-custom cabinet lines are following suit and processing custom colors as well!

In this specific kitchen, our client wanted to achieve the feel of a Nantucket cottage here in Mattapoisett. We selected soft, ocean like colors, and kept it fairly whimsical, to keep the formality out of the space. When our client was interviewed, she was so pleased that we were able to bring her dream kitchen to life. She also raved about the functionality of the kitchen. She loves how well the bar area in the adjoining room works for entertaining. It also keeps her guests out of the main cooking area. She also stated how much she enjoys the corner sink overlooking her back yard. Prior to the renovation, this space was the main doorway into the home. Everything was opened up and by doing so the house flows better and definitely seems more spacious. We are so happy to hear that we were able to create the kitchen of her dreams!

Custom Color Matching...
Do you have a paint color or piece of inspiration that you would like to see in your kitchen or bathroom cabinetry?
Here’s some information about the custom color process from Plain & Fancy:
 “Requests for custom color matches arrive at Plain & Fancy every day, often in the form of a paint or fabric swatch. Working with our encyclopedic color library, trained technicians with years of experience begin the matching process by selecting an existing base resin that’s closest to the desired shade. Using bench-top mixers, the base resin is blended with high-concentrate pigment tints, which are painstakingly measured out in 0.01 gram increments until the correct color is achieved. The resulting paint is then hand-applied to a pair of sample doors—one for the customer and one for our library—employing the same two-stage technique used on the production floor: first a catalyst is added to help cure the finish; then heat is applied to create an extremely hard and durable surface. Once the customer has approved the match, full-scale production can begin.
We’ve so perfected the Plain & Fancy custom color match system that we are able to recreate accurately almost any hue from any source a customer cares to send us, however bold or subtle, quirky or classic. Recent cases in point include a pair of well-worn (and much-loved) denim jeans; a sky-blue vintage 1950s coffee cup; a weathered gray painted roof shingle; and, most challengingly, the delicate shade found on the underside of a wild mushroom.”



Great American Bake Sale Buzz

It's time to get ready for Details' 2nd Annual Great American Bake Sale!

Join us on Saturday, July 17th from 9:30am to 5:00pm as we raise money to help end childhood hunger in America!

Here is a little background info... "Great American Bake Sale" is a country wide fundraising event created by the Share Our Strength organization and sponsored by Food Network, Domino Sugar and Family Circle Magazine. Share Our Strength is the leading national organization working to make sure no kid in America grows up hungry. The organization weaves together a net of community groups, activists, and food programs to catch children at risk of hunger and ensure they have nutritious food where they live, learn and play.

In the world's wealthiest nation, no child should grow up hungry!! Here are some stats I found frightning... Over the course of a year, more than 12 million children in America worry about when their next meal will come.  That's one in six who are at risk of hunger and who have limited or uncertain access to the nutritious food they need to thrive. Our participation in the "Great American Bake Sale" is raising the critical funds needed to support after-school and summer feeding programs in our community and across the country. 

My team needs your help!  

I am looking for bakers to donate goodies for the sale, prizes for our raffle (ie: gift certificates, gift baskets, etc.) but most importantly, I'm asking for your attendance on July 17th!!! 

Please contact me at Kitchen & Bath Details if you would like to donate ( or 508.758.6083)

Here are some shots of our 2008 Great American Bake Sale!

This year our team hopes to raise $2000.00!! With your help, we can work to end childhood hunger in America!

As of June 10th, I have ten volunteer bakers and the following raffle prize donations:

4 Tickets to a Red Sox game at Fenway Park

I hope to add more and more to this list of raffle prizes so we can reach our goal of $2000.00! 
Stay tuned for more info and updates!



Warm Cherry Transitional Remodel

When clients of ours called and said that one of their waterlogged cabinets had literally fallen off of the wall, we knew and they knew that it was time for a new kitchen. What began as a stark, white kitchen has been transformed into a gorgeous, modern transitional kitchen for a busy household. We chose to work with Starmark Cabinetry to design a contemporary take on cherry. The subtle hues of this natural wood lend natural warmth to the kitchen that was missing before. Out clients selected glossy granite, SubZero & Wolf appliances and finished off the kitchen with bright and shiny hardware. It is amazing to see just how different this showcase kitchen was before.
