    A space of wonderful details! The walls look like Dunn Edwards' Silver Fox, DE6289.

    The table top looks like it could be walnut, hard to tell from the photo. It also looks like it may have been added to a Knoll table base?

    I saw a similar table in LA and I think it was oak. Beautiful table and amazing space. LOVE this entire house by Ken Levenson Architect.

    I think that the chandelier is model Regal from Crystorama.

    Before you head to the paint store,think about the colors that you like in your everyday life. Remember that you will have to live with your paint color decision everyday. This doesn't mean that you need to be safe either-it's only paint and it easy to cover up. Find a piece of clothing, a photograph, etc. that has a color in it that you really like. Take it with you to a paint store and find a color that closely resembles what you have brought. Make sure to also take swatches of that color in darker and lighter shades just to make sure that you find a color that you like. Go home and tape the swatch to your wall to see how the color looks in the lighting that you have at your home. It's really important to see how the color looks in your home, because lighting really affects paint colors. After reaching a decision you can take the plunge and buy a gallon of that color and get painting. You can also buy sample sizes if you still are rally on the fence about your color decision. The swatch can also vary a lot from how the color looks on your wall. As far as painting the whole house, a lot of companies now have solutions for complimentary colors, so that once you have chosen a color that you like, you can choose other colors. Or just use the same color in the whole house at varying intensities.

    When it comes to dealing with inherited items, people tend to fall on a scale between preservers, like Angie, and innovators, like Karla. Thank goodness for preservers! It’s because of them that we have precious artifacts and museums full of history. We are able to examine the past. Thank goodness for innovators! They build upon the past and push us forward with new ideas. The world needs both.

    The amazing style created by the confident and bold combination of 19th Century architecture and modern taste is what makes this and the other rooms of this home so popular with Houzz readers.

    KitchenLab Interiors added this to Color Ideas for Commitment-PhobesJan 16, 2011

    This room is a favorite of Houzz contributors and for good reason: The perfect balance of a mostly gray palette accented with the yellow sofa and orange toned wood top make me want to move in, tomorrow.

    Janell Beals - House of Fifty added this to A Great Color Combination: Gold Meets GrayDec 18, 2010

    From another angle: a bright yellow sofa continues the concept of accents in gold in a very modern way. I am always inspired when I see images of this home by architect Ken Levenson.

    12. Dramatic dining tables. Whether it's the size, the shape, or the materials, you love dining tables that make a statement.

    I love the juxtaposition of this rough wood table with teh very fancy chandelier and room detail.

    Melissa Alvarado Sierra added this to The Eclectic Style: It's All In The MixSep 7, 2009

    You can tell this place belongs to a designer and a sculptor. The design theme is brilliant, mixing 19th century details with modern and rustic elements flawlessly. This is by far my favorite of all looks because of its geniality.

    greige/Fluegge Interior Design, Inc. added this to Stylish Responsibility: Decorating with Eco-Friendly and Vintage FurnishingsSep 6, 2009

    Another amazing space filled with reused and vintage items mixed with new and unusual pieces mixed together making for a great visual display from Ken Levenson Architect P.C.

(melissa) "every single tiny detail of this interior is BREATHTAKING" (monica) "I'm a fan of all the different styles that are mixed so nicely here....modern artwork, art-deco chandeliers, country kitchen table, mid-1900s chairs." (designlonging)

    Kit Pollard added this to DIY Projects: Choosing a Dining Room TableSep 6, 2009

    But a mix of styles - rustic wood in a room with fancy detail - also looks great.
