Another type of typically Dutch piece of furniture that is now very much neglected and forgotten is the "klapbuffet", literally flip buffet. This c.1790 Neoclassical example in our dining room is shown in open state, with the lid flipped open, and little shelves cleverly hidden in it folded out. The side supports are also extended and contain compartments for cutlery. The tin wash basin allowed diners to cleanse glasses in between courses. In closed form it serves as an ordinary side table. This ingenious type of furniture only occurs in The Netherlands and allowed for rooms which are normally used for other purposes to be instantly turned into dining rooms, and turned back into drawing room or family room after dinnertime. Leave it to the economical Dutch... #furniture #mahogany #klapbuffet #antiquefurniture #brownfurniture #18thcentury #interior #interiors #historicinteriors #interiordesign #dutchdesign #design #home #myhome #instahome #homedecor

We are loving our new window screens in the bathroom and second bedroom.
The challenge was to have something that would provide privacy when required but “disappear” when not in use so as not to detract from the beauty of the park, eucalyptus tree and viaduct outside or the stunning stained glass and shape of the windows themselves.
Luckily we called on Andy who created the perfect solution.

Close up showing the incredible cresting of a rare George I gilt gesso pier mirror of impressive tall proportions. The frame features a central cartouche with acanthus decoration between a broken swan neck pediment and eagle heads to the sides. The mirror plate is framed with a stylised Greek key pattern that continues around the full length of the mirror. #antiques #design #mirror #gilded #artcollector #carving #countryhouse #masterpiece #greekkey #18thcentury #artoftheday #luxury #architecture #reflection #acanthus #interiordesign #historicinteriors #mayfair #stjames #giltgesso #nationaltrust #museum #englishheritage #theworldofinteriors

How lovely would a Thanksgiving dinner be around this table?! This great room is a converted authentic stone barn, complete with stone walls, a hearth stone fireplace, and endless old world charm. I’d love to show you around!

Visited this glorious wallpaper last week . I am so lucky to be invited to such wonderful houses and to discover hidden gems . Probably late 18th century and a perfect combination of the traditional figures and birds and flowers style.

Beautiful matchstick boxes and a bit of old interior in Tobacco and matchstick museum. It was a totally random find, but well worth visiting.

A perfectly patinated example of early Dutch vernacular interior woodworking, from the Johannes Cornelius Decker House, Circa 1726 in Wallkill, NY. This portion of the house was added in 1787. Photo by @trevortondro from the book, A Simpler Way of Life: Old Farmhouses of New York and New England.

Dutch 18th-century chimney breasts invariably consist of three parts: the actual fireplace mantel, mostly made of marble; above which there was a mirror; and over the mirror usually a painting, or sometimes a carved relief. The mirror and painting were frequently contained in elaborately carved undulating frames. This tripartite arrangement occurs in many shapes and forms in accordance with period and region, but the three elements are always present. Because of this, there are mirrors in nearly every room in our new house. Although I don't particularly wish to look at myself all day long, the ubiquity of mirrors does however create the most wonderful reflections. #mirror #fireplace #chimney #interior #interiors #interiordesign #historicinteriors #canalhouse #18thcentury #instahome #myhome #reflections #decor #homedecor

Kenwood from the East Drive. Kenwood was substantially remodelled by Robert Adam between 1764 and 1779 for the William Murray, 1st Earl of Mansfield. Two wings were added by George Saunders for David Murray, 2nd Earl of Mansfield. The 2nd Earl also employed Humphrey Repton to redesign the grounds. Now in the care of English Heritage. #art #history #architecture #arthistory #eighteenthcentury #georgian #georgianhouse #classical #classicism #neoclassical #neoclassicism #museum #historichouse #historichousemuseum #countryhouse #interior #interiordesign #historicinteriors #london #robertadam #curator #heritage #gallery #artgallery #garden #historicgarden #landscapedesign #gardendesign

A favorite capture of fragrant, etheric beauty is a portrait of Mrs. Reeves @seidenweberin in the Wattenwyler-House in Bern. Once a year, this splendid palace (normally used for state affairs) will be opened for the public. An excellent venue for lovers of historic interiors. #historicnewbern #bern #wattenwyl #escapadas #ladyinwhitedress #ladyinwhite #historicinteriors #historicinterior
