Thank you for the interest in our project. The chair was made by the owner. Making furniture is his hobby and he has his own wood shop on the property.

The owner purchased this mirror, along with the vanity lights, at The Lighting Showroom in Kings Beach, California (Lake Tahoe). You could call them and/or send them the photo and see if they can tell you who the manufacturer is. Or send you the same mirror....

Thanks for your interest in our project - on which we were the builder. We are not an interior designer and cannot help you with your question. Someone who could help you is the designer on the project: John Turturro with Turturro Design Studio - (805) 525-3052; JTURTURRO@GMAIL.COM. He helped the client pick out the furniture, colors, and accessories for the project. Hope that helps

Gail, to speak of color in the abstract is impossible. Colors must be viewed within context. Light, adjacent surface materials, time of day, the neighbors stucco wall, all impact our perception of color within a space. Selection of colors from print or online photos (catalogs), also quite impossible. Hue, value, chroma, intensity and color harmony must all be considered/decided before a color scheme is imposed. I would strongly suggest that you consult a local designer before you proceed. - John A. Turturro

The room is insulated. There is icynene - a spray foam insulation - behind the boards of the ceiling. It is great insulation for a home in a high fire area as it does not require venting.

Thanks for your interest in our project. The glass is frosted Starphire glass - a frosted “laminated” glass with a graffiti coating. Any glass installer ( Glazer ) can provide and install it.

Thank you for your interest in our Montecito Shores Remodel. The transparent glass panels are from a company called 3form, who makes decorative glass and resin panels. Here is a link to their website: http://www.3-form.com/. I hope that helps.

The client purchased the table and chairs at Paradise Imports, 101 Garden St, in Santa Barbara, CA. Phone: 805-963-1100. You could give them a call to learn their source. Or maybe they'll even ship! Good luck.
