Unfortuantely we don't have any specific details on the dimesions of the pool. It was installed after we finished designing the house.

The countertop of this custom designed vanity is made of Calcatta marble, which matches the floor tile.

Thank you very much! This new construction home was designed to evoke the feeling of an 19th century farm house that was built in stages over the years. The stone facade was salvaged from a local farm house that was being demolished. Breaks in the the stone facade were purposely designed to represent the expansion of the house over decades as the the family grew and prospered. While the materials and details give the look and feel of an authentic centuries old house, the design of the interior spaces is based on the needs of a modern 21st century family.

Unfortunately, I do not have any information on the manufacturer of this hall lantern. We were not involved in the selection of the lighting fixtures for this particularly house.

Unfortunately, we do not have any information about the manufacturer/style of this rug because it was chosen by the home owners.
