we have to reapply the finish outside every few years to keep it from fading and inside, we only did it when we install and have not done it again as there is no direct sun on the wood.

The door handles are from Forms and Surfaces. I believe we bought them on line.

Walls: Can you please tell me how the wood walls were done?

We installed the wood similar to how it was installed outside... it is 6" tongue and groove redwood siding over plywood with a clear stain. We didn't want to see nail holes so we used stainless steel nails in the grooves.

Do you think you could use a tongue and groove hardwood (flooring) teak maybe the same way as you would the siding?

You'd have to do some research online or in your area. These were custom made in Berkeley CA by 4th Street Woodworking.

Hmmm... I don't remember the exact color but it was a grey black grout pretty much the same color as the tile. It just look lighter in the photo.

Thank you for the nice compliment. The tiles are actually all the same size but what is making them look different sizes is the fact that there are stairs in the foreground. The tiles are 16 x 16 black slate which is one of the more uniformly thick slates. Some slates have a lot of cleft but this one is pretty smooth which is easier to work with for the tiny grout joints. The reason why grout joints are usually bigger is because it is much easier to install that way (read much cheaper as well). I don't think you need it for expansion... our joints are tiny and never had any issues. Hope that helps!

We bought the slate from American Slate Company. They have a showroom in San Francisco and locally for easy pick up. Not sure if they are a national company but I know they have several locations in the SF bay area.

The floor is Brazilian black slate natural cleft which is very dense and does not flake.

My guess is a slate floor and cedar or teak walls, I'm going to go check the interview and see if they told us...

What Houzz contributors are saying:

While gray-toned wood walls are definitely a modern way to go, pairing cedar tone plank walls with gray flooring can work beautifully too. If the cedar is rough and/or rustic, go a bit more sleek on the floor with smooth, satin or matte finish slate or porcelain. The contrast between the wood and floor can be stunning.

Doors. Welcome your guests with a punch of contemporary style through oversized glass doors. The benefits go both ways: visitors will get a sneak peak at your gorgeous decor as they approach your home, and you get to soak in the beautiful view every day.
ds design studio added this to Inspiring Materials: Slate Tile
Stairs. The natural slip-resistance quality makes slate a smart choice for stairs. If you prefer a monochromatic look with very little color variation, you might like this dark, almost black slate ...
Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Floors Blur the Line Between Inside and Out
Same thing here. The flooring material just continues right on out the door with no interruption.
Houzz added this to Pivot Door
A double set of pivot doors like these may resemble hinge doors when they're closed, but the gap at the frame edge when they're open gives them away.
