This home exemplifies a stunning use of deeply respectful period design, coupled with the courage to take your client on a journey free from creating a museum. Beautiful and inspirational - thank you to the clients too, for placing such faith in worthy people

just to be crystal clear - I have NO association with this firm. I work in Australia as a period interior architect - and because I design, make and install what I design, feel deep connection with the work of great artisans - I do not number myself among them.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Rachel Grace added this to Geometric Runners Shape Stairway Style
This geometric-patterned carpeting is affixed to the riser, which classifies it as a Hollywood-style runner. Installing a runner in this fashion prevents dust and dirt buildup behind the fall of the carpet.
