Behind the Scenes

Part of our love for antique homes is the silent history each of them contain about those who lived there in the past. And while a house can't actually speak, the layers of paint and plaster and wallpaper and stencils tell a thousand words...

Original wood laths from a Leverett, MA Center Hall Colonial, installed as art on top of vintage wallpaper

Layers of '30's wallpaper over plaster in a Riverton, CT brick Federal

Center chimney in the stairwell of a Southbury, CT Saltbox built in 1700
