The Sparkling Season: Holiday Color Makeover
Nature even inspired the home’s paint colors. The living and dining rooms are a sage-gray, the kitchen is a sage-blue, and the master bedroom is a eucalyptus hue.
Botanicals from the 1700s hang above tailored white-upholstered furnishings and antique finds. “I’m an antiques nut,” says Lynn, who put in a bid on this character-filled house within 15 minutes of seeing its original plaster walls, wood-beam ceilings and arched front door. “I love mixing antiques with newer pieces.”
In the dining room, a vintage secretary supplies bar storage and a drop-down surface for serving pieces in the dining room. A new crystal chandelier hangs over the dining table. A cocktail table has an antiqued mirror top, and mirrored or crystal sconces sparkle. “I love to use reflective surfaces,” Lynn says. “You’d be amazed how things reflect when the fireplace is going and the candles are lit.”
