    Hi brouije and kierstongray,

    The color is great! I am looking into finding out the name and will get back to you as soon as I know!

    Thanks. I live in a 1923 cottage with wonky tongue and groove walls so I painted them all white. I"m trying to colour things up with accessories but when I saw this door, I thought it would be perfect for the inside of my front door in the hall way

    Just mix any type of white paint (flat finish) with a little water (try 3 parts paint to 1 part water--1/2 cup of paint should be more than enough for a brick fireplace). Paint the brick with an old paintbrush and keep a cloth handy to wipe up drips since the paint will be runny.

    After looking at all of the photos of this house, I suspect an artist must live here, and at the very least someone with creative flair. It's the way the decorator worked with the featurs of the home and enhanced and accentuated them. I love the whimsy of this huge but cozy vintage house & quirky happy vibe!

    What about the brick white wash - does it withstand the heat of the fire?
    Thanks for getting back to me about the floor.

    Hi Pantsychmance,

    The floors are heart of pine! I am not sure about the heat of the fire with the wash, but will let you know if I find an answer!

    Hope this helps!

    Hi llswink,

    I am not sure of the exact wash color at the moment, but I think Susan Jacobs directs you to some great examples and techniques! If I find out more details I will be sure to send them your way!

    Hi tishandrick!

    Were you asking about the wall color or the white wash on the chimney? The wall color is Swiss Coffee OC-45, Benjamin Moore. If you were curious about the chimney color - I am not sure of the exact wash used but can get back to you! Let me know!

          1. A Vivacious Victorian Vibrant color and playful personality shine throughout this 1800s New Orleans Victorian. Kim and Ray Martin have filled their gorgeous three-story home with colorful local artwork, eclectic furniture and timeless heirlooms to suit their family of five. With help from architect and designer Marie Palumbo, the couple renovated the kitchen, repurposed some rooms and revamped their backyard into an outdoor retreat, all without losing the home’s original charm. The previous owners left the spacious kitchen in good shape, but the Martins wanted to add their own custom touches. A whitewash was added to the original brick fireplace wall to make it blend with new white cabinetry. “I just wanted something real clean and white,” Kim says. “I thought the art would pop a little more.”

          9. Amazing artwork. This charming eclectic kitchen has a few focal points, but I find my eye going immediately to the artwork. The great thing about using an original piece of art as a focal point is that yours will be the only one like it. It goes without saying, however, to use care and consideration when installing art in the kitchen. Grease, humidity and food and drink messes could cause damage, so make sure your space is well-ventilated and the artwork is kept out of harm’s way.

          8. Whitewashed brick creates a blank backdrop for art. The previous owners of this 1800s New Orleans Victorian left the spacious kitchen in good shape for Ray and Kim Martin, but the pair added their own custom touches. They added whitewash to the original brick fireplace wall to blend with new white cabinetry. “I just wanted something real clean and white,” Kim says. “I thought the art would pop a little more.” Designer Marie Palumbo helped create a ladder rail system for their custom floor-to-ceiling storage unit with Carrara marble countertops. The ladder can easily be moved to any section of the kitchen.Madeleine chairs and pedestal table: Restoration Hardware; tile: Stafford Tile and Stone; art above fireplace: Michael Banks; ladder and rail: Alaco Ladder; rug: Disc, Surya; wall paint: Swiss Coffee OC-45, Benjamin Moore; chandelier: Ingrid Wide, Julie Neill DesignsRead more about this rainbow-colored home in Louisiana

          I like the brick fireplace in kitchen-look. Particularly for the 405.
