The sailboat... - My son has cancer and he wants a sailboat like this to put on a ledge before his bed to look at. Do know know where to send me. I am the CEO of Come To Our Houzz, a design consulting group. Can you help?

Unfortunately that was a part of the homeowner's collection, so we do not have the source for that specific one. But one of the other houzzers had suggested their website, where you can purchase model sailboats much like the one pictured here - Hope that helps.

I'm doing a fireplace much like this with a smiled ceiling. I love how the trim makes the stone and paint colors pop. Could you please tell me what color the trim is? It looks kind of like BM white dove, but a little creamier. Thank you!

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Cozy Elegance by the Lake
The double-sided fireplace drops down on the other side of the dining room, which creates a full lake view from the kitchen and dining areas. Having the living room connected to the dining and kitchen area creates a natural flow when the family is entertaining, and also keeps them in one main living area when it's just the five of them.Ottomans: Donghia
