Determined to maintain the historic charm, the new proprietors began the interior’s renovation and design with an important question: “How would the first lady of the house have decorated it?” It was decided that, once the authentic elements of the house were preserved—wooden floors, marble chimneys, and ornamented ceilings—late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century décor would fill its rooms. This style also aligned with the couple’s personality, and so pieces from that period were carefully sought out and brought home.
