Timeless style and warm character are the hallmarks of the design in this antique New England colonial. In the family room, we used warm colors and family friendly fabrics. Embroidered linen draperies on custom wrought iron hardware beautifully frame the dining room windows in classic style. In the kitchen, a trio of framed antique seed packets highlight the brick hearth that would have functioned as the oven in an earlier era. The honed granite counters, limestone tile backsplash, and apron front sink along with the antique French farmhouse table all complement the original beamed ceilings and wood floors. The attached carriage house, now an office, is outfitted with leather and tweed furnishings. Every room has been updated and freshened while retaining all of the old house charm.
