    Hi -
    The desk is +/- 13'-0" long. The bookcases ( shown only on the one side) on both sides add another 2' - 0" total to the room width but at the desk the walls were furred in. If you look closely at the photo you can see this. Then -- yes the desk was designed as part of the project and build by the cabinet maker.

    It's lovely. I love everything about this room. Office space, but cozy too.

What is the size of this room and how high is the ceiling at the lowest/highest pont?

    The room is 15 feet wide and 14'-6" deep. In this view you are only seeing about 11'-6" of the depth and about 12 feet of the width. Width direction is in the long direction of the desk. The low point is 7' - 1" and the high point is about 11'-10". (slope is 4:12) The desk is almost 3 feet deep, front to back, so the ceiling has gotten to be 7'-10" feet above the floor at the edge of the desk - and except for at the knee space where you can clearly stand right up against the desk -- at the drawer areas and or standing in front of the bookcases the ceiling at the low point is closer to 8 feet.
    It is a really comfortable room -- nice size and a good scale.

    The owner selected the colors - let me see if I can find out. The paint was Benjamin Moore.
    I'll follow up when I can.

    There is no horizontal board tied to the design
    Of the desk. I am not sure I am seeing what
    You are. The desk is open underneath to the wall.
    There may be something placed under the desk.
    But it is not integral to the desk itself.

It would be nice to slant vault the ceiling and then have transom windows on the other side really high - they it isn't...

Could just go square...don't think this would work as well in our space.
