When planning the interior design of our greystone over a year ago, I definitely saw myself drawn to very traditional pieces. I had always loved traditional decor–especially those reminiscent of London and Paris throughout the last two centuries. Gilded mirrors, traditional banquettes and armoires, settees and wingback chairs, grandfather clocks. I love it all.
I posted this photo of our bedroom decorated for the holiday on Instagram Friday night and I just can’t believe the response from ya’ll! So many questions about where we got things (even though you can find it all in the liketoknow.it app here), I thought I’d share direct sources here! Keep reading…
Here it is – our entryway! I absolutely love this space with it’s original 1887 staircase (that our guests sometimes question will collapse as they near the top… we don’t think it will!). I love the long banister and the curve at the top of the stairs. And the vestibule right when you walk in keeps so much of the cold out in the winter.
That being said, this room in the home is definitely the one that NEEDED the most work – mainly the stair runner. The tile in the vestibule was sad but I address further down in the post that was a personal choice to change it, not a necessary one.
To make it easier for people to source the things they see in our home on Instagram or wherever, I’m starting this new series SHOP OUR HOME #SchmiedskiGreystone. Sometimes it will be product by room, sometimes it will be a specific item category, like this first one: mirrors.
I’ve bought more mirrors for this place than anything else. I usually have two mirrors in my home aside from what’s in the bathroom; a floor mirror, usually near the front door, and a mirror above my dresser for getting ready. But a larger home calls for more mirrors… I guess?
