In early December I had the opportunity to tour Brumby Hall while on a Christmas Historic Home Tour in Marietta, Georgia. One of the homes open during the tour was Brumby Hall. I previously shared a tour of the downstairs of this beautiful home HERE and a tour of the two dining rooms HERE.
In case you missed those previous tours, here’s a brief history of this historic home.
In the previous posts, we toured the downstairs; today, we’re heading upstairs.
I’ve always wanted to put a runner up my main staircase with the brass rods like you see here. I wouldn’t mind exposing a bit more tread on either side, though. Love this look on a stairway.
A view looking down from the top…
Aren’t the old “fashion plates” wonderful? Wikipedia describes these colorful portraits this way: A fashion plate is an illustration (a plate) demonstrating the highlights of fashionable styles of clothing. Fashion plates are not depictions of specific people, but are instead generalized portraits, meant only to dictate the style of clothes that a tailor, dressmaker, or store could make or sell, or to show how different materials could be made up into clothes.
As you arrive at the top of the stairs, this is your view.
The upstairs landing/hallway/gallery is quite large. We find another beautiful chandelier here at the top of the stairs. This home has some of the most amazing chandeliers. Remember those gorgeous chandeliers in the two dining rooms?
Let’s go check out the room we see through the doorway on the left.
Love the sloped ceiling. I think sloped ceilings give a room so much character….feels cozy. Lots of beautiful furnishings to be found in this room, just as we saw on our downstairs tour.
At the other end of the hallway there’s a huge room. Here’s the view upon entering the door.
This room has a beautiful bed. I believe this style bed is known as an Eastlake bed. Google that and you’ll find some really pretty examples online.
Two very different style cradles. So special getting to see these!
Another child’s bed…
This room was large and contained a lot of wonderful antiques.
A beautiful Christmas tree stood in front of the large window at the end. Bet this was lovely to see from outside come nightfall.
Thanks for coming along for the tour. Did you go on any home tours during the Christmas season?
