Is that grasscloth on bulletin boards?

- Also what wood is on countertops? Nice job!

    Don't think grasscloth per se- a fabtic that looks like grasscloth, but tolerant of push pins. Not sure of counter species but I think walnut

    Could you please share the wall color in this room? Very interested! Thank you!

where is it from

  • Cecilia Rodriguez
    Wow...is that what I wrote. I am interested in the wood flooring we are buying a house and thinking of going with wood floors so many to pick and I fell in love with the one on the photo. Our kitchen cabinets will be maple was thinking of going with a darker wood flooring would it look good with the cabinets?
  • PRO

    the flooring is 3/4" tongue and groove rift white oak, with a very dark stain. Light maple and very dark floors-- it's a personal preference, could look very striking. You'll need to tune the floor color to work with the yellow of the maple though. Also-- I warned my client in advance-- dark floors show EVERYTHING! Wet footprints that have dried (think dogs), every piece of lint and dust. She still loves them though.

    All of the cabinetry was custom built (by a local cabinetmaker) throughout the home.

    The chairs look like they're Herman Miller's: Eames aluminum management chair. A mid-century modern classic. You can get them from Design Within Reach (www.dwr.com)

    The counters are a stained wood veneer, not sure whether we used white rift oak to match the floors, or another species

    Flooring installers can be secretive about their mixes and formulas. :-)
  • PRO
    Polsky Perlstein Architects
    The stains were mixed iteratively with the owner reviewing successive samples, we don't have any record of the formula.

      I have this chair in tobacco color but never knew who made it. I purchased it at a yard sale for $60 from a lady who said she got it from a store that recycles high end furniture from hotels.

    how are the memo boards done?

    • PRO
      Jamie Herzlinger
      You can go to home depo and get a product called homasote. Then you can get a pretty fabric and make them. the oars can be any size. The ones here have a moulding separating the areas. You can also take ribbon and put on top of the fabric, and take nail heads to hold it in place and create really pretty boards. My company makes custom ones if ou I've up. Info@jamieherzlinger.com

                It looks like burlap to me, possibly covering cork or a magnetic board (or maybe both.)
