This was a custom mixed paint that started with Benjamin Moore's "Grand Teton White" (OC-132) as the base. White paint was added to lighten the color. I don't have the exact formulation for the trim, but it is a white oil-based satin impervo paint from Ben Moore.

We didn't choose the furnishings- the owner did. Here is a similar chair:

We designed the house, but didn't choose the furnishings, so I don't know for sure. The space from the corner of the fireplace to the outside wall is 6'-6" so I'm guessing that the bay window to the edge of the rug is about 3 feet. If you want to see if something will fit in your space, try placing painters tape on the floor where the table would go. Better yet, mock up a cardboard cube in shape and size of the table.

This floor is stained Heart Pine. Pine is certainly appropriate for cottage styles, but because it is soft you would have to be ok with the odd scratch and ding in the floor. In general, I would look at flooring with wide boards and some small knots for character. Try looking for a local flooring mill in your area, you will find local wood species and can usually get a variety of widths and grades of flooring. Keeping the material local will go a long way towards the cottage feel you are going for.

We didn't select the furniture for this project, but if you do a search for a "spindle armchair" you should find some options.

You can also do a search on "Bobbin Chair" or "Spool Chair" ... a lot of retailers have different versions of these chairs (i.e. Frontgate, Pier One). I believe Bassett even has a version with a funky cow print fabric. Good luck!

These are roller shade- no valance. I don't know what brand they installed, but something similar would be these from Hunter Douglas: http://www.hunterdouglas.com/our-products.jsp?so=tn#/P_52/

I don't know where the cushion came from, but I doubt it was online. Here on the coast of Maine there are a lot of people that make custom cushions for boats, so they will make them for home use as well. Try looking for an upholstery shop in your area, or even a good seamstress that can also make pillows and cushions.

The client chose these shades, so I don't have any information in our records. For something similar, try Hunter Douglas roller shades.

These are reclaimed bricks, so the color is naturally occurring over time. You can get new "old bricks" but they are not nearly as nice looking.
