The built-ins are lit by fixtures mounted above. It is similar to the DJ Wally Lite by Tech Lighting.

The tile on the fireplace was actually selected by an interior designer from New York (Fred Clapper of Plan B). Unfortunately, I have not been able to get an answer for you! I'll let you know if I hear anything.

I'm sorry, but we don't have record of a paint color. I believe the selection was made by the owner.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Details: Textured brown tile surrounds this Rumford-style fireplace, creating a clear focal point against the white walls and built-ins. While this is a functional wood-burning fireplace, the homeowners opted to skip the mess, hassle and heat of a fire and light their hearth with candles instead.The mounted-TV dilemma: Whether to mount your TV above your fireplace is a personal decision, but the designers at Drawing Dept generally try to avoid it. “The two items begin competing for attention, and often the television is mounted awkwardly high,” says founding partner Rob Busch.Instead, Drawing Dept placed the TV alongside the fireplace to play to the asymmetrical balance of the space, while allowing the fireplace to anchor the room and help separate the den from the office area within this open floor plan.
