A luxurious Scalamandré floral weave on custom club chairs sets the home's palette. Sofa fabric is Osborne & Little; drapery fabric is Robert Allen, with custom fringe. Just behind the chairs (not pictured) is the kitchen island. A Visual Comfort floor lamp between club chairs supplements table lamps created from 19th-century Italian balustrades.

The great room's petite 18th-century French table and the Pierre Frey toile-covered British Khaki Collection lounge chair segue to the porch's Brown Jordan rattan sofa covered in a Lee Jofa stripe.

Pine walls and ceiling are original.

Vintage Copeland Spode plates and ornithological prints on the original 1841 pine walls team up with a New Metal Crafts chandelier in the entry.

Originally the parlor, the front room now is Jim's office. An antique English trunk services a leather Hancock & Moore sofa. Clarence House fabric at the windows mixes with Cowtan & Tout's animal print on the Minton-Spidell cane chair.

At the back of the house, off the great room, the master bedroom includes Amy Howard mirrored bedside chests, Clarence House drapery fabric, a Brunschwig & Fils bed-skirt fabric, and a painting by Susan Sugar.

Part of an earlier addition, the master bedroom opens onto a private side of the house. The secretary is from Patina Inc.

A Niermann Weeks chandelier, Cowtan & Tout fabric on the valances, and Hunter Douglas blinds decorate the master bath. In addition to a shower stall, the room includes a deep soaking tub from Victoria & Albert LLC.

Sunny Scalamandré linen toile dresses Hickory Chair's cane chairs and the pillows, duvet, and bed skirt in a guest room.

An old studio is now a guesthouse.
