Dear readers and friends,
In my previous post I told you about two projects I was working on (if you might be interested in reading, please click here). As one of those projects is finished, I wanted to come back to you to today with pictures of this finished French style panelled room. I also added some pictures of the situation before and of the work in progress. If you are interested in seeing more of this room in progress, please click here.
Detail of the French 18th C. chimney and trumeau.
Finished installation of the chimney and parquet de Versailles floor tiles.
Fire place wall today.
Dismantling of the existing fire place and knocking down a part of the wall.
Before picture of the chimney wall.
Detail of the oak panelling with integrated existing door.
The existing mahogany door was preserved and has been given a faux oak wood finish to match the solid French oak panelling.
Library cabinet wall with – a new upholstered – French 18th C. sofa in front.
The existing window on the back wall was enclosed in order to be able to create a large built-in library cabinet.
Detail cabinet wall with hand carved ornaments.
A lot of attention has been paid to the match of all fabrics and trimmings as here to see on the sofa pillows.
Velvets for sofa upholstery and draperies.
Detail of one of the windows with velvet draperies finished with nice trimming.
Notice the window espagnolette that is a reedition of an 18th C. French ‘coeur ajouré’ espagnolette and of which the button is topped with gold leaf.
Loving this small painted 18th C. portrait of a French ‘dame’.
One of the plaster brackets added on the panelling.
A beautiful and exceptional single arm sconce, – a reedition of an 18th C. sconce – seen on the jib door of a small ‘secret’ passageway towards the ‘chambre annexe’.
All custom made hardware is carefully chosen.
All pictures shown here today I took myself. Once a photoshoot is done by a professional photographer, I will come back to you with more details of this room.
I do hope you enjoyed my today’s post!
