We have had cabinet door samples sitting in our house for about two months. I haven't even thought to take some photos to share until this weekend.
The white maple for the perimeter cabinets and the dark will be on the island only. I decided to do the mixed look.
We also added the upgraded glaze on the cabinets. It's an heirloom glaze. It will make the moldings on the cabinets pop and also make the white cabinets not so bright white. I think it really adds to the look we are going for in the kitchen.

The actual cabinet doors shown above are a little different than the door style than what we ended up with. But similar.
Next up, countertops. My favorite thing to pick out.
So when we were looking at samples, I pushed for granite. Well, really first I pushed for concrete countertops but everyone and their mother (even mine) told me that it was probably not the best choice....anyway, then I pushed for granite.
While browsing countertop samples I picked this one. Wrong. It's quartz.
Cambria Quartz countertops are actually stronger than granite and is still a natural stone. No sealing or regular maintenance needed because it is nonporous.

What is your favorite kind of countertop?
Do you like the mixing of wood tones?
Does looking at the photo of my chipped nail polish make you want to give yourself a mani too?
