Detail from The Geographer by Johannes Vermeer, 1668-69, oil on canvas
I am transfixed by the beauty of this lofty room designed by Tracery Interiors (photo below)…the size of the window panes and the side light they create remind me of Vermeer’s studio…how wonderful to see a modern interpretation of such a classic space…I don’t know if that was their intent, but I’d like to think they were sublimely happy with the result!
Overlooking the Birmingham Country Club golf course in Mountain Brook, Alabama, the interiors of this 1929 Tudor Revival home were elegantly re-imagined by the creative team at Tracery Interiors…the challenge ~ exquisite details on the exterior did not translate to the interior spaces…the solution ~ design new paneling, cabinetry and ironwork to fit the style and period of the home! The brilliant new shell feels altogether old world and refreshingly new at the same time! What a harmonious setting for the homeowner’s collection of fine art, antiques and all things beautiful…enjoy!
