Breakfast Room

Keeping true to the spirit of the pre-Revolutionary house, the Scisciones hired master carpenter Greg Flegal to repair the existing woodwork, wall paneling, and window shutters and re-create lost elements, such as rotted windowsills and missing moldings.

Here, bricks pave the floor of the breakfast room. The settle table and sack-back Windsors are 18th-century-style reproductions. In the corner, a Wardian case-a miniature indoor greenhouse capitalizes on the natural light the room's southeast-facing, double-hung windows supply.
