The walls are not really this bright. The painting is by Robert Gratiot. The doorway leads to the front stairway. And, of course, every two story house needs a door to the exterior from the stair well.
There used to be a fireplace over there. My sideboard would look great there if only it weren’t broken (my fault, poor packing of the POD).
The door on the left leads into the kitchen. Painting by me and a chair that is so ridiculously ornate I had to buy it.
