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.

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.
