Is the DOOR a true, wood stile & rail or is it a molded panel door? - Either way - it looks great and emphasizes how this simple, quiet, design can fit into so many vernaculars. It has Shaker roots, but finds a happy (art deco) home here. Full disclosure :-) we sell both S&R and molded versions of this design. http://www.houzz.com/projects/330582/Madison---An-Interior-Door-with-RANGE

A few more quick "doorguy" comments: the baseboards painted the wall color (or maybe the rug color?) and the door surrounds in white is interesting from a door and millwork perspective. Also, makes sense, considering the hor striping on the wall. A lot of *stuff* going on and a great result! (Like the escutcheon plate on the doorknob too.)

It would be helpful to know what color is on this particular wall as a starting point. Could you share this information?

Could you tell me how thick the tape was? Would 1.41 inch work or would you go bigger than that?

With this kind of treatment you need to wrap the whole room. The horizontal lines are what make the room restful, so you wouldn't want to interrupt them. That's also what makes it a tricky paint job, because the lines need to be level––and meet up as they wrap from one end to the other––but in old buildings, the floor and ceiling are rarely level. So it's a delicate matter of finagling a visual "level" that may not always be technically level. It often takes three times as long to tape off this kind of treatment than to paint it. You only have one shot to get it right, so it's worth it.

That's a custom shade from the fabulous Meteor lights: http://www.meteorlights.com/
You can choose what color parchment, what color lanyard, and which paint treatment (this shade has a subtle gold splatter paint that is too fine to see in photo). They are NOT fast, you will likely have to wait longer than they say, but it's worth it, and their prices are great considering it's all made to order.

I know, it's very unusual for deco; the only one of its kind I've ever seen. I think it's probably late deco as it moved closer to a mid-century streamlined look. The earlier deco can have too much frou frou decorative motifs that were hangovers from the era preceding it. There are no surviving labels but when I first purchased it I remember that it had an American department store label on one of the pieces, so it may have been a house brand. It was purchased in upstate New York so it may have come from a store in one of the bigger cities such as Binghamton or Albany at the time.

I'm excited to see this piece. We have several pieces of a bedroom set that we restored. Looks like there could be a matching vanity.

I'm trying to pull a few different blue-gray paint fan strips. Do you have a good BM family of colors to work with? I'd love to know this color and try different ones "around" it to test in our bedroom.

For blue grey try HC-171 and in that area. Definitely test it in big swatches; greys are very changeable in different light.

Vintage deco--try your local antique store, Craigslist or Ebay. Deco remains a bargain compared to other decades and blends great with mid-century accents. Most deco bedroom sets come with one or two high dressers and a low dressing table like this one, always with a large round mirror. The construction will be good quality, with dovetail drawers and usually a veneer of mahogany or tiger maple, and once in a while, blonde mahogany. The manhattan shop, Adelaide often restores these pieces with a deep wine-colored stain which is pretty gorgeous: http://adelaideny.com/Adelaide/Adelaide.html

what color and brand did you use for they gray and light accent stripe? Is there a bright teal or yellow paint that you could recommend that is complimentary to this color? I'm trying to paint a fitness center and want to do striping, but I'm hitting a roadblock with paint colors... Thank you so much for any suggestions you can offer!

Although lots of magazines offer advice about specific colors, you can't really choose paint long distance. Paint color is all about the light, and light is specific to every room. A color that looks beautiful in one room can be totally wrong in a different room, even in the same home.

If you're in the New York City area I can offer you a color consultation, if not, I recommend using HOUZZ to find a local designer who can advise you about paint colors.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Shabby Nest added this to The Case for Striped Walls
Thick horizontal stripes divided by thin contrasting stripes gives a wall the illusion of height as the eye travels up from one thin stripe to the next. Next: Browse more home design photos.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Loving Color: More Ways to Like Stripes
There’s no reason not to go with alternating stripes, but you could change it up a bit by varying the heights. An ultra skinny stripe mixed with a extra wide stripe gives this room with a unique focus.
Borrow from the best. Clare Donohue of 1 2 1 Studio tells it like it is. "I admit that I stole the idea outright. I had the steel bed and rug already, and when I moved into a very art deco building I was thinking I'd do gray walls but wanted a little something extra. Just in time I saw a room Thom Filicia had designed for a show house. He had actually nailed up batten for his stripes, but I painstakingly taped mine off."
Danyelle Mathews added this to 8 Modern Dressing Tables for Unflouncy Women
If you're on the lookout for a dressing table and crave sleek lines, the deco design of the table shown here, with its wood finish and simple design, speaks to those of us with a modern taste. Sites like Craigslist just may provide a piece like this at a fraction of the cost you would pay for a new dressing table.
Jenn Hannotte / Hannotte Interiors added this to The New Nostalgia: History With a Kick
Although art deco often feels overdone to the point of thematic, this vignette gets it right. The pairing of the vanity with the graphic rug and traditional armchair makes a great three-way that marries the then and now.
