I have a new story in the Raleigh magazine WALTER. The monthly stories I write there will always be about certain aspects of a particular house. This house has a back story to its WALTER story-it's also one of my client's houses.
Here are some additional pictures I took at the house and go to WALTER and read STORY here.
the Foyer, looking into the Dining Room
antiques and canvases dominate the house
chocolate brown walls and cut lacework curtains hang in the room off the Foyer, dining chairs are covered in a rich apricot cut velvet
the painting is "The Dance Class” by Jody DePew McLaine
Artist Maud Gatewood's painting hangs over the forest green mohair sofa on deep "peanut butter"walls.
The table is by artist MaryLou Higgins and a striking piece of pottery by Mark Hewitt stands alongside an antique heirloom rocking chair.
(my favorite Brunschwig and Fils paper "Foret Foliage" )
The Living Room
life-size portrait by Bill Sullivan
The Living Room curtains, french chairs and ottoman are covered in another of my favorites- Brunschwig and Fils indienne print “La Portugaise." “Pressing On” by Raleigh native Herb Jackson hangs over the mantle.
The “Jewel Box” by Carol Bechtel hangs over her desk in the Master Bedroom.
photographs are my own-apologies for some of the quality -I was rushing along with an iphone camera
