~ inspired home: favorite house part 1


I'm back! Might as well re-enter at full tilt, all stops out, and with a bang... I present to you my favorite house, already visited hereherehere and here ~ but this time, a more thorough look of the interior. My dream come true!

So excited to share this series of posts! Although I've had the opportunity to share a taste of this fabulous home before, I've fantasized about photographing the inside in it's entirety. As fate would have it, my fantasy became a reality ~ on my birthday no less!
The grand entrance...

Upon entering this gorgeousness of a home, the sheer grandeur and meticulous detail are immediately obvious. The incomparable level of craftsmanship, the commitment to quality, and the taste level come together beautifully in comfortable living spaces fit for a king and queen, but not pretentious or stuffy. 

That chandelier!

Foyer


Dining Room

Especially love the pair of lanterns and the ceiling treatment...

Fortuny Fabric = Fabulous


An antique lovers dream... 


The windows are spectacular throughout the house, and although some of the photos are dark looking into the light, I couldn't keep them from you... 





Love the escutcheons on the french doors, and the Kaneko piece is amazing...

A piece from the front of a ship hangs between a pair of charming light fixtures...


Living Room
Look at the pieces over the doorways!


Check out the detail on the drapery...

Love the seating area in front of the stunning fireplace!



The homeowner's Great Uncle Homer Conant, famed Scenic Designer and Costumer Designer, is responsible for the painting over the couch... You may recognize Conant's work on the covers of the Theatre magazine now called Playbill. In an effort to give Mr. Schubert a better perspective on what scenery would look like for his plays, Homer Conant did many paintings of sets to assist. So cool!


To die for fabrics!



Through the doorway is the Conservatory...

The Conservatory

This room belongs on the cover of Architectural Digest. I love everything about it!

A bar to the back...





I mean can you believe how beautiful?



Most definitely a favorite room in my file...

The hallway to the most beautiful office ever...

Shown above, this unusual piece of artwork is made entirely of potato!


Powder room

I mean...

Have you ever?

The most beautiful office there ever was... EVER.





Looking back to the Conservatory...


Here is another painting from Homer Conant.. A scene from the Middle East ~ Love it!


Love the hand painted tole window boxes....

Love the ceiling!


That fabric! That tassel trim!



Is your mouth open? In awe and disbelief? I just can't get over that office. And the conservatory? Dying! The living room, dining room and foyer ~ all spectacular and worthy of abundant praise. And there's more. Much more. Coming up!
