 A gem of a house that was built as a wedding present. Owners decided to move their dining room into the side porch and use the dining room as a den adjacent to the kitchen for modern living. I presented neutral Farrow and Ball tones to compliment the primary tones of the decor throughout the ground floor. The curved ceiling in the dining room was painted with a high gloss finish to contrast the rustic wooden fixture.
