To all - thanks so much for the kind and generous comments! Sorry for the delayed response, we have been out of town. But here's answers to all of the questions I came across.

- Carly

tandems - the white oak shiplap is treated with osmo polyx hard wax oil. So far, no issues whatsoever with the wood. We like osmo products a lot.

englmajor - the coffee table is from Trent's dad - he found and purchased the table top when stationed in San Francisco in the late 60's. He re-finished it and installed the legs, Trent claimed it in college and has had it ever since.

ACE in FL - the wood on the wall is white oak shiplap.

tsi - the tomato colored quilt was purchased at IKEA in 2008, I would guess.

chahn - the color on the orange wall is Valspar "Flame Tree" from Lowe's

Ammonitelnk - try using safari on the ipad2, it works for us.

misterrious - we have plans to frame photos and art, haven't come around to it yet. Our hands are pretty full with little Gray at the moment!

curryfamdc - the antlers are from my cousin, who lives about 3hrs northeast of Austin on a large ranch. He collects dropped antlers and we asked him for a few for the project.

ezraulo - the sliding door was custom made, but pretty cheaply. It's basically two pieces of plywood glued together with a veneer around the perimeter. There is an ipe strip where the two pieces of plywood meet on the front and the back of the door.

ofheart&city - the wavy pot came from Goodwill, a second-hand store in Austin. The plants are all sedums that I picked up at Barton Springs nursery, not sure what the plant names are.

sharoninchicago - we made the block prints, it was pretty easy. Found some hardwood, glued photo to the face of the hardwood with a tad of 3M spray adhesive, trimmed any of the photo that was hanging off the edge, then shellacked the whole thing with bull's eye shellac. Fun and easy project.

MEBJohnson - the JenAir stove is a downdraft, the vent actually goes into the void behind the shiplap wall and then up through the ceiling and through the roof. I guess we're just careful with the stovetop and don't get much splatter on the wood. With messy stuff, we have a splatter guard that we put over the top of our cast iron skillet. We mostly use the front burners, anyway.

Beanie Pan - we bought the dining room chairs from pottery barn around 6 or 7 years ago. That design is pretty popular these days, you may be able to find something similar.

Hey everyone and thanks for the great feedback. I'll try to answer some questions here.

spectrogram - The orientation of the lving room was completely intentional. We are not big TV people and we felt strongly about not having our furniture and room centered around the TV. The wood wall provides a nice contrast so that the TV is not so prominent. Believe it or not, we do keep the remote in the sliding cabinet.

minuet42 - The yellow chair was from my grandparents and was purchased in the 1960s (Schoonbeck Company). Sorry I can't help you with the fabric.

elijay - The bathroom sink is from Duravit, and we purchased it from Furgeson Home and Bath.

ezraulo - We will try to figure out the sliding door hardware (can't remember right now).

Thanks again!
Carly Shepherd
