The (Once) Grand Staircase (2016)


Winship House — Wakefield, Massachusetts

On the other side of the carriage entrance doorway from yesterday’s post, we see an interior made with African mahogany and English Quarter-sawn oak by designers: Irving, Casson and Davenport.

  1. I love how the handrail curves around the post at the bottom of the staircase. Such a crime to spray paint on the woodwork. I can see a bride posing for a portrait on these stairs.

  2. I was just looking at photos of the house before it was abandoned. What I believed to be wallpaper on the ceiling is actually trompe l’oi (sp.?) The hours of craftsmanship that went into each and every room boggle the mind. I’m sure the carpenters would cry if they could see what ignorant people did to their pride and joy.
