This week I visited and photographed the house---just as lovely as I remembered. Here is how it looks currently. Many thanks to my friend, Darby!
The pedestal cabinet, side table and daybed are all Swedish antique pieces from Tone on Tone. Though the daybed dates to the Gustavian period (Ca. 1790s), it has such a modern spirit and very clean lines.
Fiona chose Fortuny curtains and a toile paper for the ceilings in the drawing room.
In the foyer is an antique French trumeau mirror from Fiona's private collection.
A lyre crested antique giltwood barometer from the Empire period.
Farrow and Ball wallpaper in foyer and hallways. Anne Packard painting above an antique French console with velvet top.
I love how the pair of tole sconces echo the lines of the F&B paper.
Myrtle topiary on an iron demi-lune console with stone top in the sunny backhall.
When Darby saw this 18th century Swedish Gustavian settee at my shop, she knew it would be perfect on her staircase landing.
A walnut top island was chosen to warm up the blue and white kitchen. The toile upholstered stools are new additions.
A Swedish inspired hand painted mural around the dining room mantel.
In the family room is a custom coffee table designed by Darby and Fiona. I found the tall column clock in Sweden and 18th century limestone statue in the South of France.
