Welcome to the new mudroom! The wallpaper has just been installed and the painters are all finished—at least in this area. It is gorgeous …. People have been known to hug this wallpaper. It’s a very old pattern from Brunschwig & Fils named Gallier Diamond after a home in New Orleans. The color way is just perfect for the house.

I see more aqua and green in the new West Wing—more on that later. The new washer and dryer have arrived and the view to the entry garden may be one of the best in the house. The new dog door helps keep the girls where they belong.
