The fireplace itself appears to be a gas direct vent Fireplace Xtrordinair 864TRV with arched architectural double doors: http://www.fireplacex.com/ProductGuide/ProductDetail.aspx?modelsku=98500171

I'm going to venture that the mantel was custom-built, judging from the other photos of this project:

Brown Paint - Is the paint a semi-gloss or a flat? I can never tell..Thanks
   Comment   March 6, 2012
Thank you for reporting this. Undo
The Shabby Nest
Eggshell is actually the best choice of finish for walls while semigloss makes a good for trimwork. Flat is best used on ceilings because it doesn't reflect light and therefore doesn't show any flaws...but it doesn't clean up as easily as the other finishes which is why it isn't the best choice for walls.

We typically finish them the same as in other parts of the home, mostly these days we use a water based clear coat finish. It's important to do 2 or 3 coats and you should be fine.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Chocolate. Warm browns are simply delicious which is why they work so well in the kitchen. They are the color of truffles, chocolate chips and more. It's hard not to feel a bit euphoric when surrounded by this yummy color. Paint pick: Hasbrouck Brown HC-71 by Benjamin Moore
Has anyone tried to lick these walls? They look yummy. The space gets warmth from the walls and the island cabinetry, yet still feels bright and airy via the different shades of white used throughout. To get this look, start by replacing heavy window treatments with white wood blinds to bring in the natural light. Next, keep the ceiling white, and install lots of lighting overhead as well as floor and table lamps with white shades. Add reflective accessories like mirrors. Finally, keep artwork light by making sure it has a lot of white in it, and use white mats when framing.
