A historic home design serves as a backdrop for an eclectic collection of home goods

An ottoman by Charles Stewart in Brunschwig & Fils needlepoint fabric sits off center in front of the off-center fireplace in this living room.

Waxed-pine finished wall and island cabinetry along with a large, red-glazed cupboard add visual warmth to the kitchen design.

This headboard is made from a door imported from India and purchased by Jim and John in Santa Fe from Seret & Sons. The bed is accented by a bedspread and throw pillows from India.

Two rush-backed chairs by Baker covered in Kravet fabric, provide seating for casual meals in the kitchen design.

A large collection of porcelain Chinese temple guard dogs in what is called a “spinach and egg” glaze are displayed in a built-in corner niche in the dining room.

Delft tile, probably original to this historic home, adds a handsome touch to the fireplace surround.

This windows is one of many unique windows in the upstairs of this Columbus-area home. The homeowners opted to keep it in place to complement their historic home design.

Framed bathroom mirrors over the sinks in this master bath cleverly conceal practical storage, allowing the homeowners to keep a neat and orderly design without sacrificing essentials.

A desk in the master bedroom gets plenty of light from the arched window behind it, as well as French doors just beyond the drapes that are seen in this photo.

Scalamandré toile paper on the walls and a matching fabric on the duvet cover go far to invite guests to linger in this bedroom design.

Though not original to this home, this chandelier, with its mix of incandescent and candle light, adds drama to formal meals at the dining room table.

Bookshelves in the sunroom design house pieces of this homeowners’ art collection, which has a special focus on in local artists.

Joey, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, sits on a Queen Anne wing chair by Charles Pollock that is covered with Rose Cummings fabric.
