Susan's House Tour

Chess Table in Family Room
 Living Room

Susan's Desk Area

Susan's house was on a House Tour in Westchester County, NY recently.  We worked together on this home for 4 years. She was fortunate to inherit several antique pieces from her parents.  If your parents are giving up furnishings, it pays to take it.  It can always be re-upholstered, painted, stripped , re-framed, updated---you name it.  The best part is it's FREE.
The Powder Room mirror and sink cabinet are antiques from her parents . On the cabinet top,we added the vessel sink .  The marble top had to be drilled for the drain and  the walls were painted by a local artist. 
The Family Room was done  in the Adirondack style.  It is meant to be used by all 5 of her children and it does get used! The sectional is done is an Ultrasuede and chairs in leather.  The drapery fabric is Lee Jofa "Stucco Damask" .
The Living Room is done in Nobilis fabrics and has a piano from her parents.
The Library furnishings are re-upholstered in Osborne and Little fabrics.
All the carpets in the home are orientals, which are very durable for family life.

This house is beautifully done. I love the antiques and oriental rugs all around the house as well as the co-ordination of the upholstery , drapery and paint colors. Enjoyed the the tour , keep them coming.
