Entryway

The entryway is simple, and it suits the home just right. A few of my favorite details are the beautiful grandfather clock (which was actually made by the homeowner’s grandfather), the oversized bell jar lantern, and the curved details on the staircase. In the hallway to the living room is a beautiful china cabinet – a family heirloom from the 19th century. The antiques scattered throughout the home add to the sense of collected history in this house.

On the left side of the entry when you walk in is this moody library painted floor-to-ceiling in Inchyra Blue by Farrow and Ball. This room was designed with the baby grand piano in mind, and we balanced it with a row of built-in bookshelves on the other side filled with books, family memorabilia, and beautiful decorative pieces. I love the casual feeling of the two mismatched chairs–also from our client’s existing collection of antiques and vintage pieces.

Living Room

The living room and kitchen share one large space, and the living space is the perfect place to gather after a meal. This living space has a classic symmetrical design with a centered fireplace flanked by two bookshelves. The bookshelves were the perfect place to highlight our client’s love for collected, antique pieces. The furniture, too, is a mixture of old and new. Two new sofas—one in a cream performance fabric and the other in green velvet—are mixed with two old chairs already in our client’s collection. 

We grounded the room with a textured brown rug with a traditional pattern. And one of my favorite pieces is the oversized antique pine coffee table. This was originally a dining table that we had cut down to coffee table height to fit the size of this room.
