Hôtel de Talleyrand, #Paris, France .
. “Located in the heart of Paris, Hôtel de Talleyrand is a pivotal site of over a century of diplomacy and a #spectacular example of a late-eighteenth-century Parisian townhouse, or hôtel particulier. The building and interiors, both superior examples of architecture of the French #Enlightenment, were designed between 1767 and 1769 for Louis Phélypeaux, Comte de Saint-Florentin. The #building was purchased in 1812 by Maurice de Talleyrand Perigord, who made use of it to receive heads of state and #international dignitaries, marking the beginning of its lengthy #history as a site of diplomatic activity. Following Talleyrand’s death, the residence was purchased by Baron James-Mayer de Rothschild and remained with his family until 1947, when it was purchased by the U.S. government.
The conservation mission to restore Hôtel Talleyrand was launched in 1999 by the U.S. Department of State under the direction of the U.S. Ambassador to France. World Monuments Fund joined in the conservation effort and successfully implemented the final phase of work from between 2003 and 2006, focusing on a suite of ten rooms named the George C. Marshall Center. An extensive #study of the decorative schemes was undertaken and analysis was completed on traces of color samples taken to determine the original #colors of each room. An eighteenth-century glue-based gray paint was identified as the original color layer, and a contemporary replica of this paint was introduced into the rooms, restoring the original #decorativescheme. Interior decorative surfaces were cleaned, #woodpaneling and #ornamental features were restored, reconstitution of original #gilded and painted finishes was completed, and the #stucco #ceilings and decorative #plasterwork were renewed. Many #decorative elements of the #stateapartments remain in situ; however, the main #fireplace was relocated under the direction of the #Rothschild family. During #restoration it was returned to its #original site between the Grand Reception Room and the State Office. The two doors which had flanked the hearth were recreated, fully reestablishing the original architectural layout.” Courtesy WMF

One of the extraordinary features of magical Hatchlands Park is the fact that the upstairs rooms equal the splendor and decorative finish of the rooms on the piano nobile. This is a ceiling in a first floor sitting room, again an early work by Robert Adam of c.1758. The chandelier of Venetian coloured glass adds a touch of playful lightness. The room is currently in use as office, and underneath this spectacular ceiling one finds the usual cluttered chaos of desktop computers, printers, arch lever files and half empty coffee cups, among which I happily find myself today. #hatchlands #hatchlandspark #interiordesign #interior #historicinteriors #18thcentury #ceiling #style #traditionalism #stucco #robertadam #countryhouse #classical #moreismore #chandelier #glass

The 'Big Four' of the White Star Line were fitted with magnificent dining saloons which ran the full width of the ship and acted as the centres of public activity aboard the ships during the earlier days of their service careers. The standards of comfort aboard each vessel were gradually improved as they extended service between 1901 and 1907. The changing expectations of passengers in the 1920s required further upgrades across all four liners to maintain these excellent standards. Originally laid out in long galley tables when she first entered service, Cedric's dining arrangements were later improved by replacing these with smaller tables seating two, four, or six passengers. This brought her in line with her younger and larger sister R.M.S. Adriatic which had adopted this arrangement at the beginning of her career. Further improvements were later made by the removal of the fixed swivel chairs in 1928-29. These were replaced by individual dining chairs upholstered in leather, neatly matching the original decorative scheme whilst adding a more modern feel.
A dance floor was also installed in the middle of the room with some tables being removed and replaced by modern cane furniture. This gave the room the appearance of a modern social hall and it was popularly used for after-dinner dancing. The walls were decorated in richly inlaid oak paneling which had been later painted in ivory white enamel to give the room a more contemporary appearance. Above the centre of the room, a spectacular glass dome provided the room with further decoration as well as bright illumination in the evenings. This had always been a spectacular feature of the saloon but it was now further enhanced. Located at the fore end of the apartment was a large wooden niche fitted with a piano. This was used for divine services and later also for dancing

Let’s go back to 1997 when #ElisabettFreda designed the interiors of this private residence in #Jeddah. . . A ray of light illuminates the entrance unveiling its beauty.

Another view of the Breakers’ library in Newport RI. Nothing quite finishes off the decoration of a room than a 500 year old mantelpiece from a French Chateau, don’t you think?

Palazzo Davanzati was built by the Davizzi family around mid-14th century, was purchased in 1578 by the Davanzati family (their coat of arms is still visible on the facade) and remained in their possession until 1838.
In 1904 it was purchased and restored by the antique dealer Elia Volpi, who entirely furnished it and opened it to the public in 1910 as Museum of the Old Florentine House. After alternate events, which comprised also the dispersion of the furniture pieces, the palace was purchased in 1951 by the State that reorganised it and opened it once more to the public in 1956.

Its most important feature is the architectural structure that represents an interesting example of 13th century home showing the transition stage from the medieval tower house to the Renaissance building. The original facade was decorated with a three-arch loggia, now closed that was once open and used as a shop. A 16th century loggia replaces the usual medieval battlements at the top of the building.

The interior, which also has an underground gallery, has a courtyard on the ground floor that gives access to a staircase with rampant arches leading up to the four upper floors. Rooms are articulated in a "madornale", that is a large audience hall, dining rooms, bedrooms and "agiamenti" (toilets), a rarity in elegant houses of the period. All the rooms have floors in cotto and ceilings in wood, some of which decorated with paintings. The walls of some of the rooms are decorated with frescoes and decorations that are quite popular in Florentine 13th century homes, representing curtains and coat of arms. The most beautiful rooms are the Sala dei Pappagalli (The Parrot Room) and the Bedroom with scenes of the life of the Lady of Vergi. There’s also a well-shaft that runs from the cellar right to the top floor!

Staying this week at Hatchlands Park, the magnificent home of designer and collector Alec Cobbe. The interiors were designed by Robert Adam in 1758, when he had just returned from his Grand Tour, and are his earliest surviving English works. Alec furnished the already splendid rooms with his collections of Old Masters (some collected by his ancestors in the 18th century, others acquired by himself), but he also managed to collect the world's largest group of historic composer keyboards, with instruments played by Purcell, Chopin, Elgar and Mahler, among others. I snapped the lord of the manor himself here, playing some pre-dinner Mozart on a piano that once belonged to Queen Marie-Antoinette. #hatchlands #hatchlandspark #aleccobbe #interior #interiordesign #decor #homedecor #18thcentury #moreismore #style #robertadam #marieantoinette #traditionalism #historicinteriors

't Hooge Huys in Alkmaar: in 1931 ontworpen door architect A.J. Kropholler. Het 'Huys' en haar interieur zijn recent geheel gerestaureerd, inclusief de bijzondere tegeltableaus, glas-in-loodramen, beeldhouwwerk, betimmeringen, deuren, plafonds, meubilair en de lampen. Al deze elementen vormen samen een indrukwekkend Gesamtkunstwerk in de stijl van het Traditionalisme. Het Hooge Huys is nu in gebruik als kantoor. .

The great thing about The Old Chapel Loft is the fact that you can catch the direct train from London, Paddington, enjoy lunch in the dining car and be in Truro well before lunchtime ...... a five minute walk from the station and you are there. Whether you are looking for a romantic break, a walking holiday or a business trip - what could be easier. Alternatively you can fly to Newquay airport or if you choose to drive we can provide free designated parking within a five minute walk of this city centre apartment.
How stress free is that?

Gosh the painting gods are upset with me this week! Managed to cobble together a kit for today after leaving my suitcase with all my brushes on a london bus yesterday. If anyone sees a black wheelie bag on the no 76 it's mine! I shall make an offering of glaze and gold leaf later to appease them!
