Sideboard/Buffet is from? - Where can I get the sideboard/buffet?

It's vintage, from either a thrift store or Midcentury antique store. I believe it is teak or Danish Modern, so I would suggest using those search terms to look for a similar piece in your area. Good luck!

Hi: It's a great chair, isn't it? And it's an original Eames. You can find one like it here:

Hi: the granite coffee table was bought at a consignment shop and is likely Midcentury modern, as is most of the other furniture.

Hi: An update...the homeowners no longer have their touch-up paint can. My suggestion is to try and find something online that matches it and maybe get a small jar from your paint store to try it out on the wall or room you're interested in. Good luck!

What brand/color is this golden orange on the wall?

Hi guys, it is so hard to tell what paint color is used from photographs since there are so many brands and colors and everyone's computer screen shows the color just a bit differently.

Your best bet is getting the information straight from the homeowner, but always remember that colors will look different in person than on your screen, so sampling is always a great idea.

After 2 trips to SW, 2 to BM, Lowes, and Home Depot, my painters are not happy because I am not . This is the shade I would like to see on the ceiling of my family room/breakfast and kitchen area using white walls and walnut stained oak planks. Looking for a warm Tuscan glow. I can't wait to hear from the owner.

where is that lamp from?

If you're talking about the lamp on the buffet, the owner got it at a thrift store or estate sale, so it is basically one of a kind. The lamp over the dining set in the background is from Ikea, and is still for sale.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lisa Hallett Taylor added this to My Houzz: Colorful Midcentury Modern by the Ocean
The main living area is really one large room. A low, thick-walled mustard yellow divider separates the kitchen from the living room and provides one of the few actual walls in the main areas of the house.Designed by the late architect George Bissell in the early 1960s, the house integrates the indoors with the outdoors, making the transition almost seamless. The surrounding land was mostly undeveloped when the homes in the tract were built, allowing for ocean views from most. In place of walls, Bissell designed floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors. As a result, there is very little wall space on which to hang artwork.
Mod. Deep mustard yellow, a classic midcentury hue, perfectly complements the retro attitude of this living area and reflects the golden flooring color.
Samantha Schoech added this to Color Guide: How to Work With Orange
This golden orange is almost a match with the hardwood floors and sets off the gray accents beautifully.
Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to The Great Unsung Storyteller in a Room
If your budget does not allow for lamp making, try reworking something you find in a thrift or consignment store. The stunning lamp on this sideboard reminds me of the large-scale and often ugly lamps from the 1950s and ’60s that get donated or thrown away.
