I agree w/marianabrasil - looks like Edgecomb Gray. I just painted my dining/living room this color. Love it!

Can you contact the designer to find out the paint color please? - I called the number on their website and that you gave me and says they don't receive incoming phone calls and I have emailed them. I really want to know what paint color they used and am hoping you can help! Thanks, Jamie Raymond

You could always shop vintage - Older pieces are definitely going to be less expensive than a new one from PB.

As the photographer on the job, I am not involved in the design process. However, I do know the basement was dug out, I would say for a height of around 9 feet. Best, Leslie.

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to 11 Ways to Create a Multipurpose Office Space
This office is also out in the open in the heart of the home. Using the same cabinetry style as the rest of the home and very carefully editing items out on display help this office to fit right in. This is a nice option if you would feel isolated working in a closed room all by yourself.Locate a cabinet professional near you
Vanessa Brunner added this to Readers' Choice: The Top 20 Home Offices of 2011
3. The owners of this house created a home office under the stairs. A few wall shelves and a built-in desk (or small table), and you're all set. Try using a chair with wheels so you can roll it away when entertaining.
Becky Harris added this to Need More Space? Look Under the Stairs
Borrowing a little bit of space beyond the stairs gave this designer enough room for a home office.
Shane D. Inman added this to Designer's Touch: 10 Amazing Basement Upgrades
5. Steps to success. Construct a perfectly functional office under the basement stairs with built-in cabinetry and convenient open shelving to store bills and household paperwork. Save space and stay organized all under one staircase.
Laura Gaskill added this to 11 Ways to Finesse Your Finished Basement
Use every nook and cranny. Under the stairs can prove to be an ideal spot for an L-shape desk, file storage, an extra closet or built-in shelving to hold craft supplies. Look around — you may have more usable space than you think.
Shawn Gauthier added this to How to Turn Your Basement Into an Office
7. Consider including a bathroom or kitchenette. “Adding a bathroom and kitchenette as a part of your office environment can help you stay on track and keep from family or home-chore distractions,” says Holloway. “These added amenities will also be beneficial to the privacy issues one has if clients visit your home office."

Create a home office. This understair corner provides plenty of space for a desk, files and supplies. See more clever ideas for underneath the staircase
Becky Harris added this to The Cure for Houzz Envy: Home Office Touches Anyone Can Do
Grab space wherever you can. If your home does not have a separate office, steal a few square feet from somewhere. This can be under the stairs or in a bedroom, guest room, kitchen, basement or hallway. Here’s a positive way of looking at not having a separate home office: When your office occupies part of another space, it inspires you to keep it neat.Some ideas for integrated workspaces:
Alison Hodgson added this to Working at Home Together (and Apart)
If you are handy or have the funds to renovate, consider using the room under the stairs.
