I believe that the diameter of the ceiling light shade is around 20".

Good question! Maybe there is a ladder system that we are not seeing here.

Looks like it could be Dunn Edwards' Celery, DE5557 or Asparagus Fern, DE5551.

Hello ajeremiah,
The accent paint color we used in this room was Benjamin Moore: Pale Avocado 2146-40 in a Satin finish.
Thank you!

How do you clean the bookshelves?

What Houzz contributors are saying:

"Row houses typically have straight run stairs that are stacked one atop the next," he says. The clients wanted to find a way to make movement between the garden floor (the floor above the cellar) and garden easier. “We decided to turn the staircase that connects the garden floor to the cellar around, pointing it down toward the garden. In doing so, we created a double-height slot of space in the staircase area with a two-story wall of glass that opens directly to the garden. This slot also offered a great opportunity to create a two-story bookcase that could hold the clients' collection of books and antique model trains. The randomly hung lights "are meant to feel a bit like stars in the night sky."
The most popular place in NYC for townhouses is easily Brooklyn, where rows of old brownstones are prized and fixed-up by people appreciative of the low-scale fabric they create. Since they are basically rowhouses, windows are still limited to the front and back (with the occasional lightwell on the side), but the biggest appeal is located out back...See more of this house
Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to American Home Style: The Row House
These homes are blank canvases that can be what you want. Whether the renovation strives for historical accuracy, as above, or a sparer and more contemporary aesthetic, the choice is up to the owner.See the rest of this home
Staggered bubble lights hung at different lengths help break up all the hard angles here and add a bit of fun to this buttoned-up space.
Lisa Frederick added this to Pendant Lighting 101
Where to put them. They're most commonly seen above kitchen islands, but pendants pop up in every room of the home. They can define the space above a breakfast bar, take the place of reading lamps in a bedroom, extend into a foyer or stand in for sconces in a bathroom. Pendants are often grouped in odd numbers — a single drum shade over a dining table, three slim lights over a kitchen island — for visual appeal. However, it's more important to tailor the number to your space. If a kitchen peninsula has room for only two well-placed fixtures above it, that's better than cramming in three just for the sake of design maxims.
