The combination of stained wood and painted wood details is nicely done. I particularly like the gable end details.

I couldn’t find any proof of this, so I delayed publishing my photos in hopes that I could find the proof. Now I just want to share some of the pictures regardless of who designed it.

These coat hooks remind me of antlers and organic growths. You can get them in a variety of nice patinas.  They are sand cast in Idaho by Sun Valley Bronze.
