The oh-so-French style
fireplace was removed and replaced with a more colonial version. The Jerusalem stone
surround and hearth repeat the earthy yellows of the sisal rug. The luscious yellow
ottoman can be pulled up to the khaki-striped velvet fireside chairs for extra seating.
Kidney pillows sporting scarabs add a wry whimsical touch.
In the dining area,
traditional hunting motifs humorously nod to the more traditional colonial style. Bugles
and hunting horns have been wired to supply the lighting. Corner alcoves painted a rich
metallic gold glow with reflected light, featuring the collection of Depression-era
pottery that was inspiration for the minty-aqua velvet drapery.
