#ispy on the #fridayfinds at the Hall..the only remaining feature of the original staircase on the 2nd floor! This small notch can be seen within the wall/framing of the window! #masons climbed these steps to access their #lodge room for meetings. Today, the staircase is gone, but its #history is not.

Flashback Friday

I have been focusing this series mainly on the second half of the 20th century, so today I thought I go a little farther back. It probably has something to do with yesterday’s nostalgia trip.
This is a 1929 rendering from Modern Living. I love how the past gives us inspiration for current design, especially design done well.
Enjoy!

Ladies parlor/salon, Owen-Thomas House, Savannah. The ceiling was painted to have the optical illusion of a tent and the cornices are done up to look like the tied corners of the tent. .

This #robertadam wall color connects me directly to Dubai, my room and its blue walls. The same blue. Uncanny.

It’s inspiring to make work in response to a beautiful historical place and to introduce something new for people to enjoy.

Making the most of a day off with a trip to Harewood House, an embarrassment of Adam/Brown/Chippendale riches. This State Bed, at £400, was the most expensive furniture ever produced by Chippendale. It was used only twice for noble sleepovers, once by the Grand Duke Nicholas of Russia in 1816 and by birthday girl (b. #onthisday 1819) Queen Victoria.

‘I felt like a queen in a fairy story and could not ask for more.’ ❤️ Lady Diana Cooper’s bathroom at 90 Gower St, the Chinese wallpaper painted by her mother, the Duchess of Rutland. ‘We took a tracing of a Chinese paper at Belvoir and together on ladders we painted the white trees and birds and cages and butterflies on a pale green ground. It has a marbled perspective balustrade and, as at Belvoir, a marbled dado.’ ❤️❤️ #bathroom #wallpaper #chinesewallpaper #chinoiserie #interiordesign #1920s #londoninteriors #decorativepainting #townhouse #trompeloeil #historicinteriors #history #interiorinspo #homedecor #countrylife #archive

An uncharacteristic and unpublished Country Life photograph showing the reflection of Mrs Pleydell-Bouverie in a mirror-glass screen by Syrie Maugham.

Urgh grey rainy day ... not here! I loved the new interior scheme for the Neptune restaurant within this old Victorian room. A brave wall colour (do we call it apricot 🍑)? mixed with bamboo furniture pieces, pops of lime, a huge mix of plants and old speakers. A tropical escape in the heart of central London! @neptunelondon Definitely on the list of places to visit again. @theprincipallondon #apricot #wow #tropical #cityescape #restoration #historic #historicinteriors #research #fieldtrip #interiorinspo #interiorinspiration #destination #cocktails #london #london🇬🇧 #interiordesign #britishinteriors #marble #luxury #luxurydesign #luxuryhotel #5starhotel #englishinteriors #quirkyinteriors #interiordesigner #inspiration #wanderings #safinteriors

I’m thinking of starting Interiors Wednesday. Theses will be photos from here there and everywhere. They will mostly be of older buildings but if I find a new interior I love then it’s fair game.

Black interior 🖤 I love this dramatic little space off the main Lobby @theprincipallondon The beautiful marble fireplace with the amazing falcon* photograph paired with the glamorous black upholstery on the chairs and classical chandeliers hung in a modern cluster! Just Wow! (*falcon - I have no idea if this is a falcon so to all the ornithologists out there I maybe very wrong, apologies 😬 it’s a stunning image all the same)! #ornathology #birdsofinstagram #blackinteriors #chandelier #crystal #restoration #historic #historicinteriors #research #fieldtrip #interiorinspo #interiorinspiration #destination #cocktails #london #london🇬🇧 #interiordesign #britishinteriors #marble #luxury #luxurydesign #luxuryhotel #5starhotel #englishinteriors #quirkyinteriors #interiordesigner #inspiration #wanderings #safinteriors

In 1931 Mr Mervyn Biggs of Waterton Street, Annerley (in Brisbane) converted his disused garage into “a radio lounge”. He became an instant celebrity down at the Annerley shops as housewives jostled for invitations to the Biggs’ well appointed shed to listen to the latest hit tunes. What Mrs Biggs thought remains speculation. The mock Tudor inspired “lean to” was fitted out in the very latest technology including a radio receiver, loud speaker and gramophone. Mervyn is pictured here with his son. The story broke in the March 1931 edition of “The Queenslander” and the Biggs held regular “get togethers” with neighbours until 1942 when Mr Biggs turned it into an air raid shelter. #moderntechnology#radio #thirties#1930s#greatideas#queensland #queenslander #queenslandhomes #queenslandliving #queenslanderliving #interiors #historicinteriors #theoriginalhometheatre#stories#architecturedesign #architecturedetails #architecture #rooms #garage#retro#vintage

A break from the norm and an escape from the office yesterday late afternoon with a visit to the @theprincipallondon admiring the work of their restoration of an incredible interior. The beautiful marble lobby with mosaic floor decorated with the signs of the zodiac.

Спальня хозяйки в особняке Морис-Джумель, 1826-30 (подробнее об особняке в предыдущем посте по тэгу #nf_jumel)
———
Спальня оформлена "во французском вкусе". В Нью-Йорке середины XIX века это означало, что элементы мебели должны соответствуют друг другу по материалу и декору. По словам хозяйки, многие предметы обстановки в ее доме, в частности, кровать, раньше принадлежали Наполеону Бонапарту. Документальных подтверждений этому нет, но шторы, ковер и мебельная обивка в стиле ампир действительно соответствуют разработанным наполеоновскими архитекторами образцам.

We're busy examining and documenting our findings on the 3rd floor at the Hall! During National #Preservation Month we want to actively demonstrate how preservation is tied to stories through architecture and the built environment. Even through wallpaper, we can tell a story; who placed it on the walls, the significance for its placement in the room, and who and why it was selected. #thisplacematters #SavingPlaces #franklintn #NationalHistoricLandmark #Museum #materialculture #interpretation #tellingawholestory #conservation #historicinteriors

Музыкальная гостиная в особняке Морис-Джумель — самом старом доме Манхэттена (1765).
———
Дом был сильно перестроен в 1810-х и с тех пор почти не менялся. С 1903 года здесь музей.
———
В музыкальном салоне мебель не сохранилась (но обои 😍😍😍!), а другую устанавливать не стали — здесь регулярно проводятся концерты. Точнее проводились — сейчас особняк закрыт на реконструкцию (я там была в 2014).

St Anne’s Anglican Church in Jondaryan. Built in 1859 as a private chapel on the Jondaryan Pastoral Station, it was moved to its present site (in the township of Jondaryan) in 1893 after the great floods that swamped south east Queensland. Built of ironbark timber, It’s one of the oldest surviving churches in the Darling Downs and certainly Queensland. The interiors are of adzed ironbark slabs that were left exposed. #church#anglicanchurch#historic church #architecture #architectureporn #architecturegram #architecturelove #architecturephoto #architecturephotography #architecture_hunter #architecturedetails #architecturedesign #architecture#queensland #queenslandliving #queenslanderliving #queenslandarchitecture #beautifulbuildings #beautifulchurch#historicinteriors #jondaryan

St. George’s Chapel, #Windsor Castle, #England, #UK .
“St George's Chapel at #WindsorCastle in England, is a #chapel designed in the high-medieval Gothic style. It is both a #Royal Peculiar, a church under the direct jurisdiction of the #monarch, and the Chapel of the Order of the Garter. St George's is governed by the Dean and Canons of Windsor. It seats approximately 800.
St. George's castle chapel was established in the 14th century by King Edward III and began extensive enlargement in the late 15th century. It has been the location of many royal #ceremonies, #weddings and burials. The Chapel is located in the Lower Ward. Windsor Castle is a principal residence for #QueenElizabethII and its chapel is the planned burial site for the Queen.

The day-to-day running of the Chapel is the responsibility of the religious College of St George, which is directed by a Chapter of the Dean and four Canons, assisted by a Clerk, Virger (traditional spelling of verger) and other staff. The Society of the Friends of St George's and Descendants of the Knights of the Garter, a registered charity, was established in 1931 to assist the College in maintaining the Chapel.” #bycourtesy

The restored decoration at Ste Chapelle. Every inch is covered in paintings, both stencilled and free-hand. The 19th century restorers sought to imitate the medieval scheme and colour palette. However, later research has revealed that the colours they chose are far more muted than the original scheme. Most likely they copied the colours they could find, which would have been aged, dusty and dirty, perhaps yellowed, faded, oxidised, and so on. #stechapelle #stchapelle #saintechapelle #restoration #19thcentury #paris #stencil #painting #interiordesign #historicchurch #history #heritage #historicinteriors #interiors #colourscheme #colourpalette #colours #drapery #wallpaintings #conservation #gold #gilding

Step inside the 15th century private chapel at Ayshford, near Tiverton, Devon. The salmon pink interior was reinstated following paint research. The church boasts a medieval cusped screen with traces of red, green and blue paint, many monuments to the Ayshford family and a wagon roof studded with carved medieval bosses. #ayshford #ayshfordchapel #chapel #salmon #pink #pinkwalls #paintresearch #door #oak #lookinside #monument #memorial #pew #historicinteriors #medieval #medievalart #medievalchurch #15thcentury #privatechapel #devon #tiverton #privateheritage #europeforheritage #history #fofcchurch #friendsoffriendlesschurches #churchcrawling #churchesofinstagram #savingchurches
