Hi Suenova- it was an antique purchased at auction. However, there are some great reproductions out there like Chelsea house and Decorative Crafts where you might find something similar.

It was made by our local drapery workroom however it is a fixed treatment made to look like a working Roman Shade, with applied "pipe" jabeaus on the ends. We have a regular light controlling shade mounted behind these drapes to move up and down for light control so the treatment always stays neat and tidy.

The carpet was from Stark but I think Bellbridge, Karastan and Glen Eden make similar styles if you are looking for less expensive carpeting.

The chandelier was made by Heritage Metalworks in Pennsylvania. It is a licensed reproduction from the Winterthur Museum collection. It's gorgeous up close!

The Chandelier was from Nulco. I'm not sure if it's still being made but there are very similar styles from Chapman and Hinkley too.

The fabric is a soft blue Damask pattern from Pindler and Pindler called Divoirette in Mineral. There are tons of beautiful damasks out there today in a range of traditional and updated color palettes. Good luck!

The wall is actually a wallpaper that looks like a woven linen up close. It is Colefax & Fowler Ashcott in Ivory. I cannot seem to find the color of the trim but Benjamin Moore "Mayonnaise" looks great with this paper.

The wallpaper is an Osborne & Little Wessex pattern in Tinworthy. Also, Colefax and Fowler makes lovely delicate and soft-colored wallpapers too.

Hi Carol- This is an antique fireplace surround that was sourced in Pennsylvania. The columns are fluted and are full round columns. You can source similar Federal or Georgian style fireplace surrounds on the internet and also Ebay. Good luck!

The vanity was custom built for the space although Ronbow has very similar vanities. Good luck!

The fabric is a Brunschwig & Fils pattern that may be discontinued in this color but available in other colors. There are some great "tree of life" patterns by Lee Jofa as well.

Hi grobby- Sorry I am just getting this question now- for some reason I didn't see it! The dresser was from Jane Keltner Designs who is based in Massachusetts. She does beautiful, custom work and the furniture holds up so well over time.

Hi Northstarfarm- for some reason I did not see this question! If you are still looking, this door was an antique door sourced from Michael Coldren in Maryland who makes beautiful door hardware but who will occasionally get antique doors into his facility.

The fabric is Nina Campbell Pomegranite Tree. A wonderful extravagant fabric, I have some curtains made from that fabric.

Thanks annelucelle and Maggie! It's been a great look and has held up beautifully. Pambean is correct, it is a Nina Campbell for Osborne and Little fabric. The sofa frame itself is from Stanford furniture- very deep and comfortable!
