ALBUM ROOM

FROM THE FOYER TO THE ALBUM ROOM

Architecturally, there was a solid wall from the foyer to the Album Room. So, the foyer was very dark. Alex felt the proportions of the Album Room should have been symmetrical- especially when the house was built. So she brightened up the foyer and opened it up to mirror the cased opening on the other side of the fireplace while raising the casings to the height of the French doors to the garden.

French doors lead out to the front piazza (one of three) and to the large garden designed by acclaimed landscape architect Sheila Wertimer, with more recent updates by the talented Linda Greenberg.

Alex designed the room to display the owner’s extensive album collection while leaving room to grow. Leaving room to grow is a common theme in Alex’s projects. For example, the artwork that you see in the album room is reasonably priced art that acts as beautiful placeholders. This gives the owners the proportions to look for while allowing time to find those special pieces.

“The wonderful thing about Charleston is to go and explore the city and all of the amazing art galleries here. I like to go ahead and set the stage for someone and then let them curate their own art collection.”

One piece of art that Alex did find for this grand home though, is the chandelier. It was custom-made in  Murano, Italy, and has 138 hand-blown pieces of glass. The pieces had to be installed individually on-site. It was a chore but so worth it! Take a look at the installation process of the chandelier (featuring an exhausted Tad) and more, here.

We will continue to take you behind the scenes, room by room this fall. So, make sure that you subscribe to our newsletter and follow us on Instagram or Facebook. See you there!
