Southampton Seaside Cottage
The Nursery is decorated with a focus on combining old and new sensibilities: white wrought iron canopy crib and table, antique toy horse, paneled walls with bevelled mirrors, little chairs an table, stenciled floors, French fabrics, and outfit for the baby's first summer outing.The nursery exemplifies the best that is about country living: the newness of things just arrived and the history of things past. That is, this space illustrates how modern inventions can fit comfortably within the idioms of the past. So, a contemporary crib, albeit traditionally styled, is surrounded by both antique toys and furniture. The carpet, table and chairs are modern and combine beautifully with the antique baby carriage and rocking horse.
