Reviving Granbery Manor – Episode 4, The Work Begins

I hope you all had a great week! It was terribly rainy here in Nashville, but I got a lot of things accomplished. I’ve been working to put together some short video episodes of the progress on the restoration of the 1807 Federal-style house we recently purchased. If you missed the 3-part tour videos, check out my last few blogposts where I include one at the end of each article.

I’ll be posting the ongoing episodes here – sometimes at the end of a blogpost, and sometimes on their own. They aren’t very long, no worries – this one is less than seven minutes.

Here is Episode 4!

Wow – that room with the pretty green paper and the green gloss is going to look stunning. Fascinated to see how you furnish it and finish the flooring in due course. So refreshing to see you preserving the wallpaper instead of gutting everything.

Imagine waiting to see if you plan to pick up some of the pinks in the wallpaper when you decorate the room. THANK YOU for sharing your journey with us!

Enjoying seeing the colors you are using and your use of the vintage wallpaper for inspiration. So nice you are keeping so much of it. People don’t think of colonial/Federal style architecture as colorful, but the authentic examples did have a lot of color, often as a mark of wealth. Mt. Vernon and Monticello are good examples of researched authentic period colors of the late Georgian and Federal periods.

The sea of creams and whites came with Colonial Revival in the early 1900s and stayed there, and became pretty entrenched after the 1940s.
