This table setting is called "Tea for two." The background paneling, painting, and scalloped table were made from scratch from my drawings and in our own workshop.
A meal at the bedside in this small room with oak paneling with a 17th century four poster bed is the setting in this renaissance vignette.
This is the home I lived in before moving to the north shore. We still use it today as a rental, but it was quite the showplace a few years ago.
The porch posts were adapted to create a small deck. Oval windows were fabricated from scratch to match the diminutive scale of the house. Jonathan Grimm built them in our work shop as well.
A greenhouse and copula were added to the existing cinder block garage to give it balance and character. The green house is a place to enjoy tropical planting like banana and orchids in the dead of Winter.
