I love copper, but only have bits & pieces as accents, like a copper colander and copper vase.

That copper sided home is hopefully behind a security fence.........thieves in the metro Detroit area are stealing the copper wiring from air conditioning compressors and selling for scrap because of the price. That home would be a bonanza for them!

The hammered copper used in this wine cellar accented the wall and racking system nicely.

Thanks for your interest! As an architecture firm we do not normally keep a record of the paint colors used, it looks like it could have been benjamin Moore Navajo White, but I recommend you get samples. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your interest! Unfortunately as an architecture firm we do not normally keep a record of the paint colors used, however Benjamin Moore has a great historical paint color collection that we use alot on our projects. I recommend you get samples and see what works best for you.

Those were chosen by the clients so I unfortunately do not have information on them. however if you do a google search for French Bistro style kitchen stools you may be able to find something similar. Hope this helps.

The metal chairs are not Tolix, but rather they are the "Lyle" chair by Crate and Barrel. They are $199 each. They come in the galvanized color and they just started carrying them in black as well.

A damp mop wrung out really well with a mild detergent should do the trick. Or I supposed you could carefully separately clean both surfaces with separate products.
