The landscaping of our home was lacking therefore we took it upon our selves to create a magical setting. On one side of the pool we created a back drop wall with Espaleirs, statuary and gardens. Off at the end is the dining pergola with chandelier and barbeque area. Photo by Rosemary Carroll

Our cutting garden was planned from the onset of the renovation. We always knew that we wanted a cutting garden so we can make our own arrangements.

The color pallette for our living room, was selected from our dogs. We love mixing new and old. The fabric on the drapery is a silk shantung, and the zebra fabric on the chairs are tone on tone. We chose statement pieces for the cocktail tables with mirrored tops to ground the conversation area. The living room has a mirrored image with the focal point being the fireplace and the Tremeau' from France.

The dining room is black as it makes the room feel larger and does not limit the eye. The furniure and architecture make the room important. The silk taffetta in black and white plaid for the upholstery and the drapery keep it cohesive. The dining room chairs are chippendale which is laquered as well as the table Above the fireplace, we removed the plaster work and expose the brick to provide additional texture.

The foyer of our home - Willow Manor, went thru a major transformation enhancing the existing moldings by adding pediments over the doorways. The foyer is painted yellow. It is decorated using both antiques and new items. The consoles on the left are Garden demiloons. Kenneth's family crest's are painted in the blank space of the pediments. A leopard stair runner runs the entire length of the stair way. Photo by Rosemary Carroll

This view of our breakfast bar and working part of the kitchen allows us to prepare dinner whiile entertaining. We chose to use a modified swag and jabot using a plaid fabric for the window treatment. A light filled garden motif wallpaper was chosen using this trellis pattern.

The Study. We chose the burdundy, green and blue color pallette. The sofa is custom Ralph Lauren with a damask fabric. The wing chair is a silk damask fabric by Lee Jofa. The swags and jabots are a gold silk which close with... a banding of the main swag fabric in a Ralph Lauren Plaid. We placed this antique Library table in the center of the room on a custom aubusson rug. Over top is a bronze and lapis chandelier.
