Entry Foyer with Wilson on Guard

This new Oushak carpet makes the perfect statement when entering the ca. 1900 foyer. Notice the linen fabric on the walls. The wall covering has an ocean theme with a sea fan motif. Preservation of the original millwork was the most important detail for the homeowner. All of the original door hinges and knobs were refurbished and reinstalled to assure that the home’s antique feel remained. The fireplace was converted to gas. This will come in handy for those early spring and late fall weekends.

In the background you will notice a beautiful dining table. The trestle shows nicely in this photograph. It was custom-made in Connecticut by Peter Van Beckum.  It is a much-used and loved addition to the home.
