"A Backwards Glance"
The Dining-Room was deliberately given a different colour scheme & treatment, separating it from the other rooms. Here, we spent many happy evenings with our guests, enjoying wonderful meals & memorable wines...a rather special champagne comes to mind.... The walls were painted in a faux antique-leather; this was my first attempt, but it was so successful, and so beautiful, that I have since done this for several clients. The colour, a rich, dark green, is highlighted by the French floral cotton draperies & gleaming brass hardware. Along one wall, a gold-painted Chinese screen adds texture & balance. The upholstery, in soft gold moiré silk and plush mohair, provides a pleasing contrast to the darker tones of this room.
