    Hi Nina. I would love to know how you did this board. Did you put wallpaper on top of a magnetic white board? Looks fantastic! I am trying to do something similar to my home office! Thx in advance

    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.

    The stains were mixed iteratively with the owner reviewing successive samples, we don't have any record of the formula.

    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

    would also like to know about the fabric. Does anyone answer these questions?
  • Teri Petrillo
    are questions about where to find details within the design answered here? or possibly somewhere else?

    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?

    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.

    At my office at work, there are holes drilled in the back of the desktops so the wires drop down to the wall outlet.

    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

    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!

    we bought them at ZGallerie. If they don't have them anymore - you could try Room and Board or Design Within Reach.

    you need to hire a cabinet contractor. They did the whole thing with our custom design drawings.
