THE COLONIAL

Opposite page, bottom: In Bloomfield Hills,

a New York bluestone walkway leads to a

Colonial home built in 1939. Opposite page,

top: A wool rug purchased from DuMouchelles

in Detroit covers the oak parquet floor in the

home's living room. A still life by Marshall

Hendrick is displayed over the fireplace man-

tel; another oil by Hunt Slonem adds a small

window of color next to the bay window that

frames a Chinese reproduction ceramic horse.

This page, clockwise from top: Upstairs,

designer Joseph Keenan gutted the master

bedroom and gave it a panned ceiling that fol-

lows the roofline; the pair of nightstands flank-

ing the custom crafted bed and linens date to

the early 1800s. A warm and inviting family

room was originally a screened-in porch, as

evidenced by the exterior stone that remains

near the ceiling; a storage bench that doubles

as a window seat to the right (partially shown)

looks out over a magnificent built-in pool

with an outdoor fireplace, which the family

often uses for entertaining. Terra-rosa marble

flooring in the master bath is repeated on

the counter of a freestanding antique chest,

transformed into a sink by Keenan. In the din-

ing room, walls covered in paper by English

firm Osborne & Little and detailed with dentil

crown molding contain a mahogany dining

table with satinwood inlay from Baker and

Biedermeier-style dining chairs painted with a

faux grain. An antique English sideboard holds

a crystal serving set, also antique.
