"The floor is reclaimed oak siding from an 1870s Michigan barn." Wow! They are stunning.

Sheila, do you know what trim color was used with the "white dove" (oil or water)?

Thank you for reporting this. Undo
Yes - is the trim the same color as the walls?

What is the stone around the fireplace and how deep is that surround? It looks pretty narrow.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Sheila Schmitz added this to Houzz Tour: A Little Cottage Grows Up
Bernstein removed some walls to open up the interior but didn't try to make it fit expected floorplans. These are the original wall and ceiling panels, brightened up with a coat of Benjamin Moore "White Dove." Note the spare use of ceiling lights. "The more projects I do over time, the fewer lights I put in the ceiling," Bernstein says. "We use lights to light something — a piece of art, a table." The stairs leading up have no risers, to let in more natural light. The floor is reclaimed oak siding from an 1870s Michigan barn.
