Thanks for the question!

I can't help much with the color I'm afraid. They mixed several custom stains on site with test samples to get the exact tone they wanted for the house.

I do know about the wood though. The majority of the floor is a hickory (most wood suppliers use pecan as an equivalent to hickory as well). The darker potions that make up the "X" patterns and the squares are made of walnut though. They mirror the design of the groin vaulted ceilings above. The wood itself is solid and was hand scraped after being installed.

Probably the best tool for communicating to your builder would be to show him this picture- there isn't any technical name for the pattern that I am aware of.

Thanks for the question! Yes, that's an easy one. The hall is made of a series of squares in plan, each 6' x 6' wide (the answer to your question). The arches themselves are 5' wide, 8' tall and the thickness of the wall (or the arch depending on how you look at it) is 1'.

I've also done this at a smaller scale of 5' wide hall and 4'-0" wide arches. This was a 9000 s.f. house that we knew was going to have 20,000 plus people going through it over a month long period, so we oversized some of the hallways for traffic flow. It it quite dramatic though.

Here's a couple more images for you: The 1st is the same hallway looking from the stairs back (opposite direction- just a photo I snapped myself- not professional).

The 2nd is the upstairs gallery- (that 1st barrel vault is almost 8' long and 4' wide). The gallery behind is one of the 5' wide with 4' arches in it.

Hope that helps.

I would if I knew- I did not make design decisions on that level, although the interior designers, Lawanna Wood (http://www.houzz.com/user/lawannawood) and Pamela Randall (http://prandall1.photobiz.com/?pageID=868717) both collaborated on the interior design for this house and might be privy to that information.

Are you referring to the hanging fixtures? If so, I am told they were made by a company called "Santangelo Lighting" (http://www.santangelolighting.com). But they were custom orders as opposed to off the shelf items.
If you are asking about the lights over the artwork, I don't know (although they are common enough I believe.)
