CUSTOM CABINETRY // MY CUSTOM FINISH REVEALED
Early last Fall, myself along with talents Simply Grove & Sugar & Charm were all approached by Omega Cabinetry to create our very own custom signature finish for their beautiful cabinetry line. My own custom finish?! Um, yes please! They walked each of us through their process on custom finishing (a process available to anyone, btw) and whether it is a fabric sample, a stain on a vintage piece, a wallpaper sample, specific paint color or a pantone color they strive to match the color exactly! You can even add your own glaze, sheen, etc… I immediately knew what I wanted!
Now, as this was last Fall, this was before the whole color of 2017 being Greenery, and while my color choice is a bit more dramatic, it still falls within that color category. I choose a deep dark green in matte for my signature finish. It is a classic and sophisticated tone that has more interest than your basic black finish, yet doesn’t scream green when you enter a space. I am having dreams of seeing this finish gracing a mudroom with a graphic floor pattern. It is a color that can go modern, traditional and all realms in between. It is a color I am naming Emerson, a family name that seems to have some soul and strength to it.
During the creation process, I sent Omega Cabinetry a paint number of Pratt & Lambert’s Sierra Night and requested the matte sheen. In a few weeks, a partial cabinet door arrived on my doorstep finished in my moody finish. Oh, and it was love at first sight! Now at this point had I wanted any tweaks, we simply would have made them, but my shade was perfect. So I signed off on the color and then choose three door styles from their extensive collection to show off how versatile it is. I choose Clio, Brentwood, and Beckwith (shown above from left to right).
New cabinets are an investment, so why have something everyone else has?! Having the option to create something custom through Omega Cabinetry allows you to express yourself and your personal style even more. The possibilities are limitless.
