The progression of the rooms across the back of the house is viewed from the living room through the dining room and into the breakfast room at the rear. The outstanding millwork and plasterwork are accented with green tones and lavish wallpaper.
One of the most effective ways to highlight custom or historic millwork, such as trim or ceiling beams, is with contrasting white paint. To accentuate the original millwork in this 1920s bungalow, its walls feature muted shades of blue while its trim is a bright shade of ultra white.
