And if I understand you right, when the doors are opened the width of available space would be 36" …not counting the space between the pivot and the door frame.

Love a lot of them - especially the design with the desk, and the imaginative creation of a "faux bay" in the flat wall - I would guess you could use the built out wall sections for storage, and have the nice little nook

Hi, great question. Our hardwood floor installer applied two coats of a custom stain blend that is 50% ebony with 50% chocolate onto a rift and quarter sawn white oak floor. However, since this is a custom blend from the floor installer we are unable to actually confirm the brand of stain. If you desire to use such a blend in your space, we always recommend obtaining at least three samples from your flooring installer. Different lighting conditions and color schemes can alter the perception of the floor stain. Hope this helps and good luck with your project!

Hi Kelly, thanks for your question. The paint color we used on the walls is called Vanilla Milkshake by Benjamin Moore, with a matte finish. We really enjoy using this color in our designs because it can really add drama to a space. Hope this helps and good luck with your project!

Hi, and thanks for your question. Typically walls can have a little sheen when compared to the ceiling. We prefer a matte finish on the ceiling to eliminate glare. However in this image both the wall and ceiling paint finishes are matte from Benjamin Moore. The ceiling paint is called Hazy Skies and the walls are Chelsea Gray.

As for you bathroom color scheme, ultimately it is up to your discretion and your desired aesthetic. Keep in mind that lighting also plays a major factor in how paint looks in a space. Different types of lighting and color temperatures can drastically alter the perception of the paint color. We always recommend obtaining a handful of samples so you can see your paint selection in the space. Hope this helps and good luck with your project!

Hi, Great question. Our hardwood floor installer applied two coats of a custom stain blend that is 50% ebony with 50% chocolate applied onto a rift and quarter sawn white oak floor. The general concept is mixing 50% black with 50% brown to achieve the rich dark tone. It is always best to have your floor finisher provide at least 3 stain samples for your review and approval. It is great to have the stain samples applied to the actual floor so that you can see the finish in the actual space and lighting. Thanks for your question and good luck with your project.

Hi and thanks for your question. Painting a room can be very tricky since there are many lighting variables. Natural light and different types artificial lighting can vary and drastically alter the paint's appearance. We always recommend obtaining a paint sample and testing the wall in key lighting areas to evaluate the colors in the actual room. The San Antonio Gray is a cooler tone, but it is always best to test your paint selection first. Hope this helps and good luck with your project!

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. We enjoy sharing our passion with others and we're glad you've been inspired!

This historic home was built in the late 1800’s and offers a slightly larger living room about 26' x 16'. We wanted to make sure the scale of the room was proportionate to the scale of the furnishings and fixtures. Therefore some of the design shown here is custom made for the project.

As for your piano, it should be noted that the piano in the image sits in a nook identical to the master bedroom one floor above (see below, taken from the opposite angle as the living room). This enabled us to gain a little more visual breathing room and allowed such a large object to fill the space without overpowering the other pieces in the room. Hope this helps, good luck with your project!

Hi, thank you for your question. Benjamin Moore has developed a paint specifically for bathrooms and areas of high moisture, so if you intend to paint your bathroom be sure to use their "Aura Bath & Spa" paint. It comes in a variety of colors in a matte finish. This particular color is Benjamin Moore San Antonio Gray (AC-29) Matte Finish. Good luck with your project!

Hi - thanks for the reply. How about the aluminum channel installation? How was that achieved? Just a space left by the tiler?

Hi- Thanks noticing the details on the LED Shower light Cove. The LED tape was installed in an aluminum channel with an acrylic lens from Luminii Inc. Their website is www.luminii.com One very important note, since this is a shower it requires the wet-location rated LED tape which is embedded in a resin coating.

The gap at the back wall of the shower is 3 inches because the electrician needs to be able to install the LED and channel 8” high into the light pocket. For the best aesthetic, try and make the gap as small as possible while keeping in mind a human hand is going to install it. Your electrician will be challenged if there isn't enough room to install the fixture.

One final suggestion: always be sure your light cove is painted or tiled in a white finish. The light will reflect best from a white light pocket and ensuring the desired aesthetic. Good luck with your project!
