We made the space more human scale with a free standing book case
that used to be in their family room in Surrey.
I wanted to show off Jim’s antique maps “en masse.”
And finally, before leaving England, they bought a
gorgeous inlaid wood game table by David Linley.
I numbered them and sketched them out to scale on paper to determine the layout.
Then, Lisa cut the painter’s tape to size and I put them up on the wall.
You can’t tell, but I styled up the bookcase shelves. Also, grabbed that Venetian bowl from the dining room so that we could keep the collection (they have three) together in here.
(the lizards are terrorized, however).
