The walls of the living area feature a custom Venetian plaster finish which carries through to the second floor master bedroom suite, and the lower level family room. The sofa is from Design Within Reach, the open armchair is upholstered in a Duralee fabric, and the curtains of a Cowtan & Tout sheer are trimmed with a braid by Samuel & Sons. The artworks were commissioned for the client's previous home in Connecticut, and the floors are white oak.
