What is the color used on the wall surround the chimney? (Very much in love with the color scheme of this whole house!)

I am glad you like it, but unfortunately this is a custom tinted plaster and is very difficult to replicate. We have the plasterer make extra so our clients can make repairs with the original mix since a paint will never match up exactly.

It looks like a porch outside this room, so I'm guessing it's a two-sided fireplace.

Yes, there is a more traditional looking fireplace on the backside of this fireplace which serves the screened porch. The two flues share the same chimney and there is also a shared ash dump in the crawlspace.

Where can I buy the bench, table, and chairs? - I have been looking for a cafe-style, comfy-bench kitchen nook for years. This blue-leather + retro table top is just sublime. Please give information about buying it. Thanks.

Our clients are great internet shoppers and found these online. Just search retro diner booths and furniture and there are tons out there.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

You might have to look twice at this photo to see all the see-through elements. This space fits a dining room, a living room, a stairwell, a kitchen and a balcony. Why doesn't it looked like a crowded dorm room? See-through storage. Open shelving divides the dining room from the entryway yet leaves the sight lines open all the way to the stairs. The open banisters upstairs add to the light and the feeling of open yet distinct spaces.

Now, I know this is totally opposite of the rooms I said I like that are GLAM, cream and/or monochromatic- However, there is a huge side of me that really likes this quirky look. This is very similar to "Catalyst Ranch" in downtown Chicago that I told you about. My challenge may be to bring glam and quirky together and blend the 2 worlds (not sure if that is even possible- would like to play with the idea though...)
