Love this quaint space. Would it be possible to find out the paint color that was used on the wall and bookcase? Thanks.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

In their previous state, the bookshelves were shorter and covered by doors. "We had them made a bit higher, and we left the shelves exposed in the living room," says Iris.

added by mamapatty to mamapatty's ideas (8 days ago) During their home renovations, Iris and her husband kept the original drawing room doors that separated the dining room from the living room. Separations were typical in homes a century ago in The Hague, as were high ornamental ceilings, wooden floors, stained glass windows and marble mantels.
