Restored homes in Colonial Williamsburg showcased Revolutionary era decorating.
"The interiors of the four hoses are shown here for the first time in a national publication."
The first house photographed was not open to the public but was rented privately and furnished with antiques and reproductions.
An embroidered linen bed hanging appears in the bedroom of the Brush-Everard House.
The Everard-Brush House parlor includes a desk and a teatime grouping. The "Tavern Green" wall paint was one of six Colonial Williamsburg colors. The color on my computer is not very close to the photograph in the magazine. The color is much deeper and greener.
This bedroom has interior shutters and a canopy bed. A crewelwork chair has a detachable candle arm.
The following photograph is the dining room from the Coke-Garrett House West.
The dining room in the Carter-Saunders House includes an Oriental runner and replica wall paper. Don't you love the turquoise painted corner hutch?
We have inherited a few Colonial inspired pieces. A Windsor chair. A secretary. A pie-crust table. We have a winged arm chair similar to the yellow one pictured above. The homes in my family were not as high traditional as the ones in this article, but they were ALL Colonial reproductions or Colonial inspired. Magazine articles like this must have informed their choices.
