A HIS­TORIC HOUSE

Old House Journal - - Design -

Find in­spi­ra­tion at a house mu­seum, or in a book about his­toric homes. The re­cently re­made din­ing room (at left) was clearly mod­eled on the draw­ing room at the home of Swedish artists Carl and Karin Lars­son—it­self a ca. 1900 in­ter­pre­ta­tion of 18th-century late Gus­ta­vian dec­o­ra­tion.

The bead­board-clad is­land with rounded cor­ners was in­spired by an ec­cen­tric sink cabi­net built by a ship’s car­pen­ter, which the homeowner re­mem­bered from a visit to Cas­tle Tucker in Wis­cas­set, Maine.
