at home with the gentleman

. . . the 1882 John Crispe House. Perfectly curated, with the eye of an aesthete. Its restoration was a labor of love.

The library contains everything from 19th-century red leather and gilt bound gift books to early copies of Hints on Household Taste and The Book of Mormon.

Yes, a gentleman indeed, luckily you seem to have snagged one. I hope you have made way for something of this nature in your own digs. pgt

little a ~ with little more than 500 square feet to work with, I think we are doing well, melding our two worlds. From cannon balls to Biedermeier bookcases, there has been a transformation chez JCB.
