Jared used an English hand-blocked chintz designed in 1859 by Jean Monro with collections of Grand-Tour objects throughout the upper-level landing.
Portieres leading into the bedrooms’ vestibules feature fabric by Vervain. Jared painted the Visual Comfort sconces red for additional strokes of color.
In the curve of the stairwell, the designer hung art from a brass picture railing to create a salon-style look. “Most of the pieces are from my personal collection. It’s much more interesting when you combine different styles and periods. Mixing antique oil paintings with contemporary art creates the right amount of tension.”
“I’ve been obsessed with this pattern from The Rug Company for a long time. I use a lot of animal-print runners because they’re so forgiving. These leopards appear to crawl up the stairs— the design is both quirky and classic.” Jared adds that the brass handrail will only get more beautiful with age.
On the terrace level landing and in the sitting area, panels of a scenic wallpaper from Gracie are framed and hang on the walls. Hancock & Moore made the blue, tufted leather chairs on wooden legs with casters.
The evalator walls are covered with a tufted green leather from Fabricut.
Cindy Brock and the team at Miss Milly’s Event Rentals, Florals, & Design created this rhapsody of jasmine, ‘Juliet’ garden roses, leucadendron pods, Japanese anemones, veronica, tulips, butterfly ranunculus, ‘Clooney’ ranunculus, symbol roses, nigella, variegated Italian pittosporum, and Italian ruscus for the second-story landing. The arrangement appears to have sprung from the blossoms in the English chintz covering the table.
