Our home in Hopewell has been an inspiration for Old Farm as a source of colors and a style we’ve found comforting to live with. This home is half as old and has high Victorian ceilings, but both houses seem to benefit from light colors, warm wood and a Scandinavian style?
These are pictures of our dining room, where I hand painted enlarged period motifs to mimic early Swedish Manor House wall paintings.
My girlfriend from Orsta, Norway, brought me this painting her father made in the mountains there. In favorite Scandinavian earth colors and grays, it is a lovely reminder of a beautiful land. This room was featured in the first “blue and white” edition of Victoria Magazine, June 1995.
