What Houzz contributors are saying:
Establishing Age“We wanted people to walk in and have no idea how old the house was,” Cooney says. Using materials like limestone on the entry floor and plaster on the walls made the house look genuinely historical. One of the homeowners loves blues, blue-greens and celadon. Cooney carefully incorporated blue touches, such as on this entryway bench, while maintaining a subdued country palette that puts the focus on the bucolic setting. She also worked on the couple’s main residence in New Jersey at the same time she worked on this house. “In that home, we really amped up the bright color and playfulness, but here, it’s quieter,” she says.
