Except for the entryway and halls which are sand coloured, all the rooms of this Connecticut house are painted white. Then the fun begins by adding colour with fabrics and furniture and by painting the inside of the bookcase and the background of the butler's pantry in the kitchen. Interior designer Jason Bell explains that all the colours in this home were inspired by an old framed needlepoint which you can see in the first picture.



The brilliantly colored 6-by-3-foot needlepoint that says "Why Hurry? There's time enough for everything." inspired the palette for the house.























Hope you enjoyed today's tour. See you tomorrow, dears!
