A stone base design on the house column is echoed on the smaller gate columns bringing a beautiful texture to the design. The light concrete of the columns and walkways brightens the forrest green siding. A small pergola frames the wood gate and supports a single lantern hanging above. A bright red bench pops against the neutral tones surrounding it.
Cherry wood was used for window seats that double as storage, bookshelves and operable paneling for concealment of a TV over the fireplace. Spatial relationships were emphasized with the aid of wood beams and columns to reinforce the geometry of the design.
This dressing room and the bath beyond are connected by a dramatic vestibule capped with a barrel-vaulted Venetian plaster ceiling. Watercolors from the 1930s of Adrian costume designs hang above the wrought-iron demilune French console table. The zebra ottoman adds a graphic accent. The bath is anchored by an ample enameled Waterworks soaking tub. Note the tall cherry column on the side, which rotates to reveal hidden storage.
