Hello: Mantle mirrors like this were customary in 19th c. Back Bay houses. This one, while not original to this house, came from a house a few blocks away. It was re-gilded locally. You can find similar mirrors at 1stdibbs.com or good antiques stores around Boston.

Hello! Those really are great tables! Each one swivels so you can make any number of configurations. They are called "Ovo", from Arketipo. You can buy them through Casa Design in Boston, www.casadesignboston.com.

Thanks so much! That is a great, idea, to paint large swatches, etc. I have painted an entire room thinking the color would change when it dried, only to find out that it was WORSE than I thought.

Hi! Can you tell me what the wall color is? Also, where are the curtains from? I love them and I'm trying to recreate this look in our bedroom! Thank you!

Hello! This question has been asked before, but we're happy to repeat the answer: The walls are Benjamin Moore "Tapestry Beige". Of course paint colors look very different in print and on-line, and can also vary from room to room depending on lighting and what other colors are present. We always buy a quart and paint very large swatches on at least two walls, and then check the look in daylight and in the evening.

The silk taffeta drapery is custom made. We no longer have access to the source for the fabric.

Hello: The actual color used here is Benjamin Moore "Tapestry Beige, 975". Remember to always buy and test large samples of any paint color in the room where you intend to use it. Colors can look dramatically different depending on other finishes and lighting conditions.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Dietrich, Interior Designer added this to Feel Free to Break Some Decorating Rules
So I am saying that mixing is a good thing, right? Absolutely — and not just in style. Consider mixing your metal finishes, too. This room, although done in a neutral palette, has great interest because of its mixed metals. The opulent gilded mirror over the mantel has a different finish than the equally ornate console, and the chandelier boasts yet another tone, as does the circular side table and the legs on the contemporary upholstered pieces. Try this exercise: In your mind's eye, change all those pieces to the same finish. Can you feel what happens to this room? So here's a good rule: Mix your metals.See how to mix metal finishes in the kitchen and bathroom.
