The red granite island top and
table top add color to the off-
white wood cabinets, while the
China Seas wallpaper in soft
rose and salmon accent the rat-
tan chairs. The master bed-
room bath features white
Italian marble with two sinks,
brass hardware and a large
whirlpool tub. The English flo-
ral fabric accompanies the
bedroom linens.

The elegant ambiance of the
living room is continued in the
powder room with verde mar-
ble floors. The Brunschwig &
Fils tapestry wallpaper is a
backdrop for the frosted mirror

played at angles and are situated between floor-to-ceiling bookcases. A
French, 19th-century brass and crystal chandelier lights the round
glass-topped dining room table on a walnut Duncan-Fyfe base. Six
chairs, in a classic Greek design in mahogany and black and uphol-
stered in an ivory textured fabric, surround the table, providing inti-

Busts of Bach, Beethoven, Wagner and Dante sit above the cabinets
and provide a glimpse into the owners' eclectic intellectual tastes. The
nook table is a McGuire rattan with a granite top. The accompanying
chairs are in a rose and dark teal tapestry. The China Seas wallpaper, in
soft rose and salmon tones, pulls the entire room together.
The powder room continues the formal, elegant feel of the living
space. Verde marble is set on the floor and atop faux marble cabinet
doors. A Brunschwig & Fils tapestry wallpaper in rust, rose and green
harmonizes with the frosted glass mirror of a cherub with ribbons, by
Tim Gillingham.
The lower-garden level provides a salute to the Arts and Crafts era,
with arts and crafts furniture by Stickley, lots of bookshelves and built-

carpet provides a subtle background to an English-floral upholstered
