Hi Christian, excellent designs. We are building a prairie style home now and undecided on choices between stain and paint, for trim, cabinetry & flooring. I am concerned about going to far with stained wood, it may cause the "log cabin" feel. My question is about the vanity in this photo. It looks like cherry with no stain. If that is true, I am amazed it has not darkened more. The wood color is amazing. Can you let me know what wood and stain that is?

Hi, I agree that sometimes too much wood can feel overwhelming. One of my favorite uses of wood and paint together is to keep the window sash and doors natural and paint the millwork. In my own home have Brazilian cherry floors, natural fir doors, windows,fireplace surround and cabinets. All of the wainscot, baseboard, window trim and door trim are painted.I like the hierarchy that this creates, every movable part that you touch is wood and all stationary millwork is painted.The vanity select american cherry and is finished with a conversion lacquer and no stain and yes the wood will patina over time.I will use stain, however I try to work with the natural beauty of the wood when possible. I personally like the story wood tells as it ages and become warmer and richer.

Thanks for the quick reply! I just viewed Gladu residence on your website, I presume it is your own home. I see what you have done with window sash vs window case finishes. We were considering the exact same concept but was very undecided. That is until now! I think the mix of natural or stained wood vs paint is perfect and seeing it helps. What stain color did you choose in your home, for example the fireplace facade looks similar in stain color as the window sash stain. Also like how you mirrored the trim design to the exterior for the windows! I can also appreciate natural beauty of wood. You probably also appreciate Japanese design and Sukiya living principles. Your work is great and we would have commissioned you had we come across your name earlier.

Christian, are you able to tell us the paint color? - I see where another user took a guess at the shade and recommended the Lowes brand, but I also noticed she has made numerous comments like these on other designers work as well. I was hoping you'd be willing to kindly share what you actually used in this bathroom? It's simply perfect. Thank you!
