Decorative Painting, Part 1
I have been fortunate to have had several phases of architectural design work to improve this stone Georgian Revival style house from the 1930s on a lovely site on a private road out the Main Line from Philadelphia. (And I have been even more fortunate to have helped with additional residences for this couple as well, all beautifully decorated by Bunny). This is the clients' primary home and my association was made even more a pleasure because both the husband and the wife were so involved and interested in the project, a situation that is not always the case. Working on this wonderful house with Bunny, Robert, and fabulous clients was a treat for the devoted classicist.
