Lee Jofa color way - Hi do you happen to remember what color way the saltaire fabric from Lee Jofa is? I'm looking on their website and not seeing the exact color you use here. Thanks!

Hi, Kim. At the windows, here, we used Blithfield & Company's Saltaire, a beautiful modern abstract, in the Taupe-Grey-Charcoal/Rustic colorway (4400-04). Lee Jofa carries Blithfield & Company fabrics here in the US.

This is the smallest of the apartment's bedrooms, converted into a high-functioning home office/guest quarters. The owners are avid researchers and needed a place for their extensive library without displacing their overnight visitors. Our custom built-ins take advantage of every inch, leaving plenty of space for a desk, love seat, and pullout sofa. The pale nature-inspired palette, Lucite desk, and glass-top cocktail table keep the room feeling light and airy.

another paint color to die for - Please share this amazing paint color! Is it green/gray/greenish white? The light is playing tricks on me. It's got to be Farrow and Ball?
