19th Anniversary

2019 Antiques & Fine Art 111 With its carved furniture, the couple’s son’s bedroom has a masculine feel, yet is also whimsical, as befits a child’s room. The valance over the bed is from a nineteenth-century European carousel. The Italian chandelier represents the pirate ship that Peter Pan sails in to Neverland. Originally intended for the third-floor play room, Paula felt the chandelier added to the fantasy theme of her son’s room. She designed the Diurne carpet and window treatments. The colors of the English Empire furniture that Anthony discovered, was the inspiration for the green and yellow palette that Paula selected for this formal guest bedroom. This room has a feminine elegance inspired by her daughters who enjoy this bedroom when they are visiting the mansion. Through the upper level bay windows one captures a sense of the stately green expanse of the Great Lawn. (This room also has a portrait of the family’s white Persian cat that perished in the fire.)
