Hi- I believe it is Benjamin Moore, mayonnaise #OC-85 but there were a lot of changes to the paint colors at the end of the project so please confirm you like it with a sample if you plan to use it yourself. I hope this helps

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: Brooklyn Townhouse Full of Light
Herzog installed a new wood-burning fireplace in the living room. The fireplace is made from very traditional materials — marble and slate — but still has a simple and classic design. The rich hardwood floors, which extend from the kitchen into the living room, are hand-planed 8-inch-wide antique wood.
