An original landing in this 1812 American Federal style home, constructed of rubble stone, is part of the 2017 Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (BSO) Decorator Show House in Timonium. This show house room was conceived as space to display fine art and a rosewood Regency period center table, as well as function as overflow entertainment space. Overall, it required little construction, making it more decoration than designing the space. The Brunschwig & Fils wallpaper, in a “casual” damask pattern, was in perfect condition. Sometimes, one does not need to change something just for the sake of change. Further, the dado area below the chair rail complemented the wallpaper beautifully. The red chair rail was painted to match the antique white painted window trim, baseboard, and stair stringing. A simple track lighting system highlights the colorful abstract art against the wallpaper. The red relaxed Roman window shade is simple, allowing the window to fulfill its purpose of allowing daylight and air into the space. Black and white photography from the 1920’s allows the eye to rest between the two canvases, and a plain wool Persian Gebbeh area rug balances the intense red used as an accent color in the abstract art and the relaxed Roman shade fabric and trim. Finally, a pair of acrylic and white sheepskin benches adds a playful element that is functional as well as beautiful.
