Entry & Stair Tower

Interior Design: Lindsay Coral Harper
Warwick Medium Lantern by Chapman & Myers

"I love the idea of big impact in a tiny space. The amazing poppy color and giant 3-foot-tall peonies work with a collection of art to create an unforgettable moment when you walk in. You’re drawn up the staircase because you want to see the next gallery wall of original artwork.” - Lindsay Coral Harper

Dining Room

Interior Design: MA Allen
Halcyon Large Three Tier Chandelier by Kelly Wearstler

“I looked to Southern style past for inspiration and took cues from icons such as Colefax and Fowler, Billy Baldwin, William Haines, and Frances Elkins in designing the dining room. The formal Southern table is set for entertaining but the unexpected layering of mixed china patterns and hues lends a playful and relaxed feel." - MA Allen


Interior Design: Michael Mitchell and Tyler Hill of Mitchell Hill
Castle Peak Table Lamp by kate spade new york, Dorchester 24" Picture Light by Chapman & Myers

“We watched every episode of Downton Abbey and became inspired by the characters, where they live, their lifestyle, and their fashion. This kitchen is the marriage of an 1840s paneled library and the 1940s machine age.”-Michael Mitchell

Butler's Pantry

“It’s a pleasing coral that gives a warm glow to the pretty faces of ladies playing cards, taking afternoon tea, or penning correspondence. Coral, celadon, aqua, and peacock with punches of citron create a layered, elegant palette. The tone is vibrancy partnered with delicacy.” - Mallory Mathison Glenn

“I not only wanted to unify the space but also to call attention to the history of the building as a former kitchen house by giving it a no-frills feeling.” - Olivia Brock
