During the month of December #92 has been closed down for renovations. All three floors have enjoyed repairs to wallpaper, moldings, woodwork and trim and a fresh coat of ivory paint. When the paintwork was scraped down to the wood, the color proved to be a warm ivory-not white. Another great improvement is the new shade of cream in the bathroom of the Abby and Andrew suite on the second floor- replacing what could only be remembered as a bileous Pepto Bismol Pink!
Some may miss the oozing red stain on the third floor chimney in the Knowlton room- but most will get a better night’s sleep for its absence which was reminiscent of dripping blood and very unsettling. The painting crew from Newport, experienced in refreshing historic homes has done a great job and the old house never looked better!
