I wanted to show our stairway area. The wall leading up the stairs is hand painted with a crosshatch design and Fleur d' Les. It looks a bit like wallpaper, but it's all hand painted. I can't take credit for it though as it was here when we moved in. It was just part of what made me love the house. Whoever painted it had incredible patience...and a love of geometry I think.
Here is a close up of the Fleur d' Les. Each Fleur d' Les has gold leafing on it. Not sure if you can tell very well by the picture.
I also wanted show the opposite view from the stairs.
The paint in the living room is a pale grey. The picture on the wall is one of my grandma and two of her sisters. My grandma is the baby on the right - sitting up the highest. Her name was Mildred.
Pictured below is the mirror that hangs at the bottom of the stairs. Reflected is the chest of drawers, which sits next to the stairs. I wish you could see the mirror itself better. It's an antique and is black with gold leafing around it. The glass is mottled, which I love. I used a ribbon to hang it on the wall.
Have a great weekend everyone!
