Thank you! The minty green is Frazee Cardoon CL 2012W with a light reflective value of 80, which is perfect for the somewhat gloomy east coast weather!

Is the shelving one unit or is it custom built to the wall? - I love this wall unit... We are building something similar in our home and we're trying to figure out the best way to do it. Are the cabinets and shelving mounted directly to the wall or is it a whole "unit" that has wood backing also? Meaning.. did you paint the inside of the shelves directly on the wall or the wood?

HI Fonzyanna... the bookcase unit was completely backed by wood for stability and structure... then we painted the entire unit the same color with some of the details painted out in a lighter version of the color... the whole thing went together well...

Nice wall unit - I am designing a wall unit for my living room. My carpenter and I are trying to decide on the depth of the shelves. 12" would fit my storage needs and the size of the room....but I'm wondering if that would make the unit appear cheap or flimsy. So, I was wondering how deep your shelves are.....because they look great! Thanks. Renee

I should clarify--I'm not the designer on this project--just a person with bookshelves in almost every room!

sounds like you are doing a great job researching before committing to the "first cut"... good idea!

hi thanks for visiting... the ducks and items on the top shelves are from Asian markets.. try the China town area of major cities, or Asian-inspired websites.. these were collected over a long period of time by the homeowner

Can you tell me how high the book shelf is? Is that 36" or 30"?
