A lavish Jacobean style estate becomes a sumptuous and inviting home, elegant yet livable, for a Greenwich family. Its grand proportions and exquisite architectural details are a backdrop for traditional styling that feels more youthful than formal. Creating harmony between the architecture and the décor was of paramount importance: custom wool rugs play off the geometric beauty of the balustrade and ornamental ceilings; furnishings follow the lines of curved alcoves; and understated draperies let the magnificent windows take center stage. The color palette of blues and neutrals ranges from soft and subtle in the formal entertaining rooms to bold and dramatic in the family room and library. There is a soothing continuity throughout, punctuated by meticulously chosen art and accessories.
