Dec 21st 2007 8:02AM I am the Realtor whose listing you have featured. Thanks for noting this property in your Blog.
I have seen this house without artwork adorning its walls and it is still compelling, architecturally. The scale of the rooms and the interesting interplay of the light, with the gardens in the background boggle the mind. And for every piece of furniture that seems a bit austere, are two yummy pieces in which to sink down into with a good book and a glass of wine.
As far as the paint colors, it kept the house whimsical instead of too contemporary, but of course with au currant now in favor, a wash of white paint EVERYWHERE is easy to perfect.
