Kelly -- The banquette seating was built by my carpenter. I have used this sort of thing in several small dining rooms lately and it works like a charm. You can email me at designontheside@grandecom.net for more details.

Regarding paint colors . . . most of them are from Sherwin Williams and some were from the Martha Stewart line that they don't carry anymore. The green in the living room is Melange Green SW6710. A slightly toned down version of that green gold that my clients love is Ryegrass SW6423.

I loved the question, "What do the neighbors think?"
The answer is that they love it or hate it. When we were working on the outside of the house, people would walk by and comment frequently. Once a couple made it very clear that they thought the orange exterior was an eye sore and were appalled that anyone would ever make such a choice. But it's South Austin and anything goes really.

The amazing orange sofa is a refurbished piece that came from Century Modern in Dallas. All the items are unique but you can see their website for the current inventory.

My "secret" place for accessories. . . believe it or not, there are a couple of fantastic antique stores that I found in Llano, TX. One of the vendors at Whimsey's has a great eye for objects and arrangements. And the prices are even better.

The pendant lamp in the butterfly room is the MIO Bendant lamp. It comes flat packed and attaches to a bulb. You can order it from 2modern.com .

From the designer . . .
Thanks so much for the positive feedback over this house! My team and I worked very hard to make this house unique and I am delighted that others appreciate our efforts. I also want to give kudos to the homeowner who has a great sense of style and was willing to let me just run with it. I will try to answer some of the questions posted in follow up comments.
