From the first floor to the second, rich wood stairs lead into the private spaces of the home. Halfway up a landing opens to the outside, keeping the stairwell bright and open. Off the landing, the staircase ascends to the second floor, providing access to the home's bedrooms.
This French country foyer features an antique dresser with a pair of ornate lamps and matching upholstered side chairs. The neutral walls and travertine tile floor point the eye to the exquisite craftsmanship of the dresser.
The long passage leading from the foyer to the dining room is broken up with a built-in bench that provides extra seating for large dinner parties. The button-tufted cushion is topped with plump damask pillows that complement the pearly wallpaper.
