Switched At Birth Part 2
Do you watch Switched at Birth on ABC Family? I do, and while watching the pull and push between Daphne and Bay I am also bewitched by the decorating. I have a previous post about the show called TV House and Real House from Switched At Birth under TV & Movie houses.
On Switched At Birth Kathryn Kennish, played by Lea Thompson, collects squirrels and there are some easily seen, but I recently noticed this squirrel in the kitchen climbing up the wall. Since it is white it is hard to spot; do you see it below?
Hello Squirrel! Maybe I should have called this post.. Find The Squirrel.
This lamp in John Kennish’s office always catches my eye because it is so unusual. I have looked around for one like it and found two listed under the description Armillary sphere lamp.
Found this one on buzzillion, but could not find it available for purchase anywhere.
This one is at negrelantiques.com for $1,750 -ouch! But, neither of the lamps I found have the double arrows like on the Switched At Birth show.
The guest quarters where Daphne lives, is drenched in color and I can’t help but to notice that this reflects Bay’s bedroom. Talk about DNA.
What I really love and want to talk about is the Switched At Birth kitchen and the different serving pieces placed around the counter tops. Where can I get them?
I love the dishes and have looked around the internet to find them and tried to find out from the Switched At Birth show decorators, but no luck.
I found all kinds of dishes similar to get the look. Here is one example from shopmarias.com that is hand-made and hand painted in Italy. It’s listed for $49.00.
Anybody know what pattern that bowl is? The grape canister in the background should be in my kitchen, I love it!
Ah-my favorite. The built-in shelves around the refrigerator and all the canisters and vases on the shelves. Great tie-in to the rest of the kitchen.
The groupings here that melt my heart are the yellow frames, the lamp, the 3-tier, vase, and the (I think it is) lemon tree. Oh-is that a black cow on the wall? I think it is.
Here is a better shot of the groupings I was talking about above.
The bar is a masterpiece, especially the comfortable chairs! It’s an English bar, fit for the Kennish home it is in.
Drop dead darling lamp shade with the bows at the top. The wood columns mirror the columns that surround the garage/guest quarters.
Switched At Birth is on ABC Family on Tuesdays at 8/7 central. That’s a wrap for Switched At Birth 2, and in keeping with find the squirrel above, Kathryn has a squirrel apron and it is adorable. You can get a black squirrel apron for sale at cafepress for $24.50.
Update: I wondered if Daphne and Emment are deaf or do they each just play a deaf person on Switched At Birth. Daphne, played by Katie Leclerc, has Meniere’s disease which is a disorder of the inner ear. It can affect hearing and balance with variable episodes of vertigo (dizziness), tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and degenerative hearing loss. Katie Leclerc is fluent in American Sign Language.
Emmett, played by Sean Bery, is deaf and has never let it get in the way of his passion for entertaining. He was named Mr. Deaf Teen America among his deaf peers for touring the country with a musical group and doing a dance rendition of Michael Jackson’s “The Way You Make Me Feel.”
