Thank you. It is a yellow stripe that actually reads quite neutral. It is called the Baldwin, I believe, and it was purchased through Macy's.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The rustic-looking wood media unit is from Restoration Hardware, and Ellie and Michael added shoe molding to give it a more custom, built-in look. Most of the products in the home are a mix of Restoration Hardware, Pottery Barn, Crate & Barrel and IKEA, blended with a few finds from local stores and their travels.
