From Kids to Quiet

On the site of an old family summer cottage, nestled on a lake in upstate New York, rests this newly constructed year round residence. The house is designed for two, yet provides plenty of space for adult children and grandchildren to come and visit. The serenity of the lake is captured with an open floor plan, anchored by fireplaces to cozy up to. The public side of the house presents a subdued presence with a courtyard enclosed by three wings of the house.

Could you tell me about the umbrella bar? - Is it a towel rack? How deep does it project? Thanks for any insight.

Thanks for your question. This is a custom made piece, so not a towel bar. I'm sure if you are re-creating your own piece a towel bar would work perfectly. This bar only projects a few inches, 3"-4".

Thanks for your question. The walls are Benjamin Moore's Summer Harvest 206. The trim and ceiling are White Dove.

What is the size or diameter of the light fixture?

To me it looks like this is a recycled door cut down a bit and with crown molding added on the top and bottom and oil rubbed bronze hooks and towel bar. Could be quite simple to make. I have an old Queen Anne door I've been thinking of using like that!
