Charleston Part 2: Ironwork & Woodwork

October 4, 2011 — 1 Comment

Stunning Door! Makes me want to paint my front door. I also love the detailed coffered ceiling and lantern.

I love good architectural detail and Charleston is a beautiful place to see some! Below is some nice eye candy from our trip. Charleston has quite a bit of nice ironwork, but I was surprised by the amount of Victorian trim and fretwork. I think of the houses being more federal and traditional in style but quite enjoyed some of the Victorian trim. I took these photos while strolling through the residential areas south of Broad. I think I will do a separate post on some of the beautiful window boxes and gardens.

Stunning Ironwork

Ironwork Gate with a Federal Entry with some Victorian Brackets. I quite like the touch of blue on the ceiling. I also like the checkerboard marble landing. It is quite British looking.

Ironwork Gate with Amazing Brownstone Spiral Stairs. Look at the perfectly manicured ivy on the steps.

Stunning Iron & Copper Gate. Another example of the checkerboard marble landing.

Stunning Iron Lamp!

Victorian Woodwork

Victorian Fretwork in a Daisy Pattern. I want to copy this somewhere on my house. After all daisies are my favorite!

Amazing Painted Wood Victorian Gate

Another Beautiful Painted Wood Victorian Gate (from the same house as above)
