I love the chairs too! They were chosen by the home owner, and I don't know where she got them.

In situations with stone, it's nice to pick out one of the colors in the stone for window treatments - pulls the whole thing together. Unfortunately I don't have the name of the yellow wall color in this photo. A little bit of red often gives a good good pop.

How thick are the walls? I want recessed windows in my new constructio - Want to know ow if the walls are framed with 2x6s alone or if something more had to be done in order to achieve the deep window reveal.

This photo is taken in the old part of the house, with brick exterior wall and wood frame interior, so about 10" thick. For a deep reveal in new construction, you can make the walls 2 x 8, or make extra deep casing (trim) on the interior.

Great bookshelves, I agree! Unfortunately that piece was entirely by the owner of the house, so I don't know their source.

Ikea also has a bookshelf like this. It's called the Lack wall shelf. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/20163779/. Ikea also sells the Alex drawer unit on the left side of the picture.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Jillian’s office/studio is filled with light and breathtaking views of the Lincoln Center Historic District. The late 1970s teak Danish desk, the easel and the Italian leather swivel chairs in tomato red make this room a relaxing retreat for work, painting and study.Leather chairs: Calia ItaliaDrawers: Ikea
Cate West Zahl added this to Easels Take a Stand
This is an artist's easel, and you get the feeling that the painting either is being worked on or was recently finished.
