Curved traditional staircase with pattern blue carpet, the turquoise blue theme is continues with the turquoise print table cloth in the small round table and the vintage French painted chair.
Botanical illustrations adorn the staircase walls with walls painted in Sherman Williams Kilim Beige and the trim in Sherwin William Creamy.
The foyer offers views into the great room, where a bay window overlooks the screen porch and backyard beyond. “I love being able to see from the front door through to the backyard,” Mary Leyden says. Kendall launched the color story in the foyer with a vintage French chair painted bright turquoise and a round table skirted in turquoise and green fabrics.
A curving stair carpeted with Stark’s “Embroidery” in sky blue draws the eye upward. The painted vintage chair and turquoise table skirt trimmed with green establish the home’s upbeat palette.
