The Crowleys’ living room; walls of windows and French doors give the space the feel of a conservatory. Walls are painted a soft gray and furnishings are in creams and white. Artwork and an antique Oriental rug add punches of color, and potted banana palm trees connect the room to the outdoors. French doors open to a bluestone patio softened with clumps of purple thyme.
The dining room is almost as sun-filled as the living room. China cupboards accent three corners of the room; a fireplace fills the fourth. French doors open onto a sunny terrace.
The library includes an office nook for Paul, separated from the main space by glass-paned pocket doors.
In the mudroom coats and hats hang from hooks in an arched niche. Above, a collection of hats is displayed.
The kitchen is large. Two islands with thick, honed marble countertops. A black-metal custom hood trimmed with nickel bands hangs above the range. For the range backsplash, Serena used a simple pressed-tin ceiling panel attached to the wall.
Serena’s collection of vintage cookie jars are showcased in glass-front cabinets with hefty polished nickel hinges and pulls. Adding to the vintage look are a separate refrigerator and freezer that are finished with cabinet faces and nickel hardware to resemble old-fashioned iceboxes.
The kitchen’s dining nook is furnished with an antique pine table and Swedish-style chairs.
The potting room, with a deep copper sink and open shelves for vases.
