:: Paint ::
Ceiling Color: Devine Maple from the Natural Blondes palette

Wall Color: HC-28 Shelburne Buff (sort-of)
BENJAMIN MOORE Historical Collection
website: www.benjaminmoore.com

After recommending this lovely color to several people we consistently heard back that the color didn’t look as yellow on their walls. We thought maybe it was because the walls were first painted a red color (a huge mistake) and the red tone was bleeding through. After further investigation, we realized that our paint color is actually a variation of Shelburne Buff – a mistake when our color was originally mixed! A happy accident because we love the color.

Register Cover: Metal Registers Style 1, Antique Brass Finish
They now offer nice Mission and Rickenbacker style register covers that weren’t available when we purchased our register covers. Although, I would still probably select Style 1 since it most closely matches the original wall register cover found in the house.

:: Chopin Chandelier ::

Chopin Chandelier – Restoration Hardware has a Lighting Sale once or twice a year. That is when we purchased ours. I have seen it listed under $400 before. This chandelier is only temporary until we find an antique light.

    Chopin Chandelier

    I have been looking for this chandelier for my home. I see you are using this as a temporary chandelier until you find another. Have you replaced it and if so would you be willng to sell it?

    It has been discontinued by Restoration Hardware

      Sadly, this chandelier came to a bad end. I wrapped it in copious amounts of bubble wrap and shipped it to my mother. It arrived broken into pieces. Sorry…
