Decorator help

When I get to the initial build sheet stage I'm getting a pretty good idea of what I want to end up with for customizations. I'll find out what ETI will do and what I'll end up doing myself (a lot, I'm sure) but I'm not an interior decorator when it comes to colors & patterns. But I do know 2 starting parameters: gray will be my color scheme and I like the look of wood flooring. I also lean towards stainless steel/brushed nickle/chrome for the sink/faucet and SS or maybe black tempered glass for the stove.

The pic is what I'm currently thinking for the floor, counter & fabric. If I had a choice as an accent, such as window valance, it would likely be a multi-gray with a faint pattern.

Your comments & suggestions are invited.

Note - I'm going gray because I already have gray accessories in my current rv: towels, sheets, duvet, bath mat, throw rug, even place mats & oven mitts. For the first time after several RVs I may even name this one: The Gray Ghost and perhaps get a custom decal to go on the outside.

To help it to contrast, pick the black trim around the counter!

Since I've never seen a build sheet I didn't know that was an option. The contrast is one reason I might go for the tempered glass stovetop.

I love gray too! It's a nice neutral backdrop color. I really like your flooring and cushion picks.

This is my personal opinion, but since you asked, the countertop looks like a granite pattern to me, which I think has peaked in popularity; I work in real estate and I don't really see granite countertops anymore in new construction houses (a lot of quartz though, sometimes marble). Also, it feels a little dark to me.

Here are a couple countertop ideas:
Formica® Laminate - Sea Salt
Formica® Laminate - Mineral Spa (This is what we did, with a cream trim, and we also have gray seat cushions. We really like it).

I hope you enjoy whatever you choose!

You are right, it is dark - esp considering the others.

How about this, with possibly black sink & stovetop, chrome faucet.

On thing I would do is to reach out to Escape and get them to provide you with a sample of the wall liner and cabinetry to compare too. Just about anything goes with the liner, but the cabinetry can clash with some stuff.

Oh yeah, that is really pretty, I like that a lot!

Jim’s advice is good too. We ended up getting a creamier colored countertop than we would have picked otherwise, but it worked well for the trailer.

Another thing added to my list of notes, ideas, questions to follow-up on.

I'm now considering the possibility of solid seat cushions and 2-sided back cushions, assuming the ETI upholster would do it: solid on one side & pattern on the other. At the moment this is what I've narrowed it down to from one source. Of course, the one I prefer for the solid is twice the cost of the cheapest. And the pattern is repeating. They are not all "reorderable" so may not be available when my time comes. Too many choices & decisions. Swatches will eventually be ordered.

Now, there's an excellent idea; why didn't we think of that.
I'll bet the ETI upholster can do it no problem, seein' as they typically do fabric front and vinyl rear now.
