    The flat areas of the ceiling are actually painted the same as the wall color, Benjamin Moore "Old Prairie" 2143-50 (walls: eggshell; ceiling: matte). This color is highlighted with "Moonlight White" 2143-60 in a satin finish on the woodwork and plaster details.

    I LOVE this room and noted the paint colors- could you let me know where in the room each color was used? Thanks!

    It's a bit complicated to describe --

    Old Pairie -- large sections of walls and ceiling
    Moonlight -- woodwork and some plaster
    Simply white -- plaster

    I am trying to find more pictures of plaster treatments from this same time period. I found some behind wood paneling. I am restoring the plaster and am trying to date it. My house is 180 years old.

    I am not sure that is plaster. Hard to tell from photo, but it appears that it could possibly be either Lincrusta or Anaglypta wall covering. Take a look at this web site

    The coffee table is vintage and by French designer Michel Mangematin.

    What would be the SW or Valspar equivalent for BM Old Prairie?

    Thanks for your question. That fireplace surround is actually marble with an applied ornamental pattern. It likely dates to an early 1900s renovation of that room. I'm sorry that I don't have a source for you.

    Thanks! I don't have those dimensions but if you reach out to the owner/interior designer JP Warren through her Houzz profile I imagine she might be able to provide you with that information. Best, Neuhaus Design Architecture

    Please take a look at our reply to another question from September 29th, it has the detailed breakdown of the colors used.

    Thanks. I wish we could take credit, but that ceiling dates to a very early 20th century renovation of a 19th century home. The ceiling and all its ornamentation are plaster. There are still companies today making ornate plaster mouldings. Hyde Park is a company that we used for new plaster mouldings in another area of this house.

    The table was purchased by the owner, who is an interior designer. Please contact JP Warren Interiors through their Houzz profile for more info on the table.

    Dealing with big, dark pieces of furniture isn't easy. In this photo, the piano, firebox and tall wardrobe balance each other in scale and placement in the composition to ground the photo. The photo is almost bookended by the dark objects on the left and right.Tip: All of the lights are off in this room, so the viewer focuses on the natural light streaming in from the bay window. This is a trend in today's interior and architectural photos.

    Kristy Woodson Harvey and Beth Woodson added this to Wall Art for Traditional Living Rooms Can Fit or Break the MoldAug 6, 2012

    The standard rule of thumb for incorporating mirrors is that the mirror should be roughly two-thirds the width of the piece of furniture over which it hangs. The distance from the floor to the top of the mirror should be no less than 6 feet.

    ACM Interiors added this to The Finer Points of Style: EclecticApr 14, 2012

    Height and scale also play a big role in eclectic style. The designer lets the floor-to-ceiling windows, empire chandelier, piano and opulent molding take center stage here while furniture plays second fiddle. Hulking pieces not only would ruin the verdant view, but they'd make the room look overly serious. Instead, low-slung modern sofas and a short glass-top table nearly fall away — and let the room convey elegance without being too precious.

    Katya Popova added this to Teach Old-World Style New TricksMar 26, 2012

    When it comes to living spaces, make sure your design plays against the architectural details you already have in the room. For instance, this space boasts incredible details in the crown moldings, crystal chandelier and fireplace treatments. The designers have successfully offset the classical background with a few very modern and minimalist pieces of furniture.

    Shane D. Inman added this to Designer's Touch: Living RoomsMar 19, 2012

    5. Crown jewels. Elevate your living room to royalty status by easily applying decorative crown molding to create a noticeable presence. Add a gorgeous chandelier for that final touch of bling that might make even her majesty envious.

    Cate West Zahl added this to Neoclassical Design Gets Modern TwistsFeb 20, 2012

    This is a case of modern furniture put in the context of a room that has the bones of a neoclassical aesthetic, including crown molding, columns and a crystal chandelier. This is a great example of the mixability of the ancient aesthetic with today's furnishings.

    Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Crown Molding: Is It Right for Your Home?Jan 9, 2012

    This may be the look you dream of when you think of crown molding. Super wide, heavily ornate moldings just knock my socks off. But are they right for your house?Consider the home style and ceiling height.This molding works because of the large scale of the room, the high ceilings and the size and detail in the other moldings around the fireplace and the baseboards. The overall style of the architecture is very traditional. If you have a very contemporary house or a mid-century modern California ranch-style home, crown molding of any kind may look completely out of place. If you love ornate crown molding in a traditional home, but also like contemporary style, consider keeping your furnishings simple with clean lines and very little pattern. The architecture will stand out while still giving you a space that feels serene.High ceiling tip: For ceilings 10 feet tall or higher, consider a rule of thumb allowing 1" of width for each foot of ceiling height. This isn't a hard and fast rule, and it doesn't work for lower ceilings. You wouldn't use an 8" wide molding in a room with 8' tall ceilings, for example.

    Annie Thornton added this to Houzz Tour: A Brooklyn Landmark Returns to GlorySep 20, 2011

    Neuhaus and her team were presented with the challenge and responsibility of the renovation and preservation of an important neighborhood landmark. With historic architecture renovations, maintaining complete period authenticity presents itself as an obvious solution. But that often feels quite dated, and perhaps too thematic. Instead, Neuhaus created a hybrid solution fusing contemporary and period design that blends the architectural heritage of the brownstone with its inhabitants' modern perspective and lifestyle.The house exterior and architecture was treated as a metaphorical envelope and would retain its period integrity. Interior features like the cabinetry, bathrooms, furnishings, light fixtures, staircase, etc. were seen as the contents of the envelope and therefore could serve as contemporary insertions into the space.
