With the addition to our Dessert Cafe, we have had so many of you ask "where did that table come from?"..."who painted?"..."is that light fixture for sale?"; so we wanted to answer all of your questions!

Details, details, details!

Paint Colors:
Accent wall color in shed is Burnished Clay by Behr.  We used Sherwin Williams Harmony paint in semi-gloss and had them match this color.

White walls are Sherwin Williams Pure White.  Harmony line in flat.

White trim is high gloss, Behr, Ultra Pure White.  My favorite trim color and paint, period.  We have used it for years!

White beadboard paint is Bakery Box White by Martha Stewart.  We had Sherwin Williams match the color and used the Harmony line in Satin finish.

Bathroom Paint Colors:
The really pretty back bathroom color is by Valspar Brilliant Metals in Simple Shimmer.  The golden bathroom color is Pale Glow.  These paints/glazes are are 2-step process, but are very easy to apply.

One last paint color….we found the perfect paint to match the white of IKEA’s cabinets!  The color is Benjamin Moore’s Paper Mache, pearl finish!  I stumbled onto this by Googling it…and it is perfect!

Accessory Sources:
The lovely hand-made glass and metal chandelier in shed is by Lousie Gaskill in Raleigh! 

All pillows are either custom or from West Elm.  They have a new store at Southpoint in Durham and a great online site as well.

Chevron Blue rug:  Ballard Designs

Grey patterend shag rug in back room:  West Elm

X-Benches in lilac linen:  Ballard Designs

Curtains in front window:  Crate and Barrel

Hanging glass vases on walls:  Arhaus (store in Raleigh at Crabtree Mall, or online)

2 Glass ball chandeliers at large table in front;  Areas

Trash cans throughout:  The Container Store (Raleigh and Charlotte stores or online)

Bathroom sources:
Hansgrohe Open Spout Faucets (TALIS):  iBathTile online

Vanity is Rustic Chic by Fairmont, sink included!  Home and Stone, online

Toto pedestal sink; National Builder Supply, online

Toto Soiree toilets, Beeson Hardware in High Point

Toilet tissue holders, shelves, hooks on doors:  Ginger CINU at Plumbtile online

Bathroom lighting is from Lumens.com.  Fascination by Varalux is the bubble-looking one and Arabesque by Murray Feiss is the golden one with the linen shade.

Bathroom doors by Home Depot.  Treviso pattern.

West Elm:  Rustic wooden console table, grey sectional sofa, ottoman, tree-stump wooden side table, grey leather chairs, round table in shed, leather sofas in front room

Arhaus:  Large rectangular dining tables…front and back rooms; wood and upholstered chairs; marble-topped console table, adjustable metal round tables (3); coat stand; square and rectangular large wooden mirrors

World Market:  Settees (The really soft ones that are so comfy, but also the ones that the legs keep breaking on!....Aggh!); the armchairs that are wood and upholstered;

Crate and Barrel:  2-door cabinet that we have the water station set upon

The sleek, modern one in front parlour is by Dimplex.  We ordered online at Net Direct Merchants.

The black one in the back room is also by Dimplex.  It is double-sided!  Also from same company online.  If you Google electric fireplaces, multiple sites come up.  Most of them are owned by the same parent company and they just have different “online” company names.  Dimplex is a very good manufacturer for these types of fireplaces.  The glass does not get hot, but the fan allows the unit to put out heat if you want, or just flames only if you just want the effect and no heat!  We love them!

Roof Ply in Greensboro ordered and installed them and did a fantastic job!

The white, rustic flooring is a laminate floor that Fred Baker at Weeks Hardwood Flooring suggested.  WE LOVE IT!  It is durable, easy to clean, and hides dirt really well!!!

It is “Cottage Oak White” by FausFloor.

Music System:
We are using Bose speakers and a Sonos Connect music system to listen to online radio sources or Sirius XM.  Paul Heist designed and helped install the system for us with the help/coordination of our security alarm company, Triad Hodges Electric.  Lee Hancock at Triad Hodges Electric contributed to and assisted with this project also!

Cabinets/Granite Top:
Cabinets are by Ikea…we LOVE them!  The granite top was installed by Carolina Custom Surfaces.  The granite is Crema Antarctica (leathered, not polished!). 

Misc:  We used “Ducks Back” by Castle for fabric protection on all of our fabrics!  This was the recommendation of Mike at Murphy’s Upholstery!
