while pops of red draw your eye to the roses in the draperies,
and the strawberry-printed dishes lining the buffet, china cabinet, and plate racks.
The lighting includes a pair of Russian styled chandeliers with free-flowing crystals around a cobalt blue bowl and ornate brass chains by Hoanie Yong,
