Through the Witch's Gate to
Mrs. Ribochau's Academy for Exceptional Young Women on American Horror Story.
This is our Open House this Sunday....a tour of the Girl's school on this season's American Horror Story - Coven.
You can watch the first episode online here.
I actually watched it on Amazon and paid to do so because I wanted it in HD so I could grab these screenshots.
Outside it's the Perfect Antebellum Home
Inside it's all about the greige.
It's very Restoration Hardware meets Aidan Gray.
Look at the details in this house! The moldings and chandeliers...the transoms!
Chandeliers and white furniture abound in this home.
Paintings of Past witches of note done gallery style of course.
A white grand staircase with ebony handrails.
The pale wood floors add to the light feel of the place. Light floors and yet the staircase steps are dark.
The view into the parlor. Impressive chandelier.
This set could be a page from an Aidan Grey catalog.
Only thing I do not like in this house are the drapes. They are too fussy.
brass candlesticks and marble fireplace mantel
Just adore the big doors with transoms in this place.
A simple quaint girl's bedroom. But this is the only bedroom seen so far...
who knows what else is in this house! We haven't seen the bathrooms yet either.
And here's the kitchen I am gaga about.
Recognize that light fixture? I know I've seen it for sale online somewhere.
See how all the cabinets look like free standing furniture?
It's looks like three hutches instead of regular cabinets.
I just love this kitchen!
gray buffet in the back and huge door with transom
Love the wall mount faucet and the little white pots of herbs on the shelf above the sink.
There to the left is a french pastry table. I've always wanted one of those.
Huge corbels in the house flank the arches of the doorways.
Hmmmm...brass light switches.
I've never seen that before and I like it.
Great vintage fridge. Now that's an ice box!
Dining room in candlelight. Love the mercury glass vase full of lemons.
And you wondered why I was talking about how beautiful this house is.
Gorgeous wall lights...very french which fits because New Orleans has a strong french history.
Cordelia who is head mistress potters around in her greenhouse/laboratory.
She's mixing up potions and spells at her potting bench.
What an incredible space! Turquoise tables....rustic brick walls...test tubes,
candelabras, ferns and industrial brick a brack.
Industrial lighting overhead.
A great house to view every week and sites of the surrounding city of New Orleans.
This show is such a treat already this year....a good spooky story and wonderful sets!
I can't wait to see if we see the bathrooms next week!
Is that wrong that I'm just as excited about the sets as I am the story?
All my favorite movies are like that...why shouldn't tv be the same?
