Paint colors are challenging to answer because usually they have been fine-tuned on site so we don’t have a specific paint color. Also colors vary greatly in photos from actuality and even further from computer screen to computer screen. We recommend getting small samples and trying them in your home to see how the colors work with your specific light.

The client purchased the cabinet hardware- most likely from Chown Hardware or Rejuvenation - both here in Portland, Oregon.

do you remember the dimensions of the windows? thanks I love this desk

Emerick Architects
The windows are 3' W x 4' H. They are a little distorted in the photo due to the wide angle lens used for photographing.

Material of the drawers of the desk. - Is the desk and shelving (apart from the solid top) made of painted wood or is it a vinyl wrap or something else?

Thanks very much for taking the time to reply! The desk is a little longer than I would have guessed. I have an alcove 8 ft x 8ft, with a 6 ft window and you have inspired me to try something similar. Although my side shelves would have to be quite shallow... Would you recall the dimensions of the units you used at all? Thanks very much again! Great space!

We are unable to identify this particular color, but the Benjamin Moore Revere Pewter #HC-173 is a similar color that we have used successfully on several projects.
