  • The entrance vestibule was painted a rich and dramatic aubergine. The contemporary antiqued brass and glass globe light fixture hang in contrast to the patina of the 19th-century Chinese bench and console cabinet. The mirror sconce is custom designed by Gissler.

Appropriately scaled architectural elements and moldings were added as well as a grand-scale curving stair. The furnishing and decoration were selected to be cheery and classic, yet strong and bold enough to hold up in these large-scale rooms
