Love the rug - Please tell me where I can purchase the rug. It would work perfect in my 20x40 living room.

Rugs Done Right
This looks like the wool and silk accent hand knotted rug we carry: http://www.rugsdoneright.com/ProductDetail.asp?SKU_ID=50098
The sheen of the accents come across beautifully in this setting.

I think this would be a case where I'd recommend a textured wallcovering or getting a faux finish artist to imitate it. This is beautiful looking but was it for a show-home for a shocking effect? Do people actually live with bees' wax on their walls? Gosh, the things I don't know...

Can this type of dentil molding be used in a room with some 45 corners - Our dining room does not have all 90 degree corners. It isn't a rectangle and the contractor says we can't use dentils because of this? True?

Sofa Fabric - I love the sofa fabric. I've been looking for this pattern to recover a chair. Who is the manufacturer? Model? Name?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Guide your design choices by picking a feel for the room: This library evokes warmth and comfort as a counterpoint to the marble-clad entryway preceding it. Gambrel achieves this with walls clad in scored beeswax and lined with cerused oak, and soft orange accents.Tip: Prominent crown molding not only lends the room an architectural gravitas, it also accentuates the height of the ceiling.
Tipping the scales. The patterns work here because of the scale of the woven print. The pattern on the sofa has a subtle texture, while the small print on the chair at first appears to be a solid color.
