Screen Star

The Chinese Coromandel screen behind the canopied bed is one of the stars of the room. The play of white against black further makes the bed the focal point of the room.

The Right Storage Space

Hidden Away

What you don't see behind the bed is the old chimney flue and asymmetrically placed window. The Chinese screen, behind the canopy bed, hides them from view, since this was the one wall where the bed would work.

Bedroom Fireplace

The new fireplace has an 18th century French style. It creates a cozy nook by the writing table and chairs.

Before the Remodel

The big windows in the study were one of the best parts of the space — everything else had to be updated for the remodel.
