Much like a painting come to life, the interiors of this well-collected home are awash in pastel hues, floral prints, and radiant natural light. Within each room, exquisite antiques, oils on canvas, and cozy upholstered pieces converge to create a sublime place in which to live and nest. Indelibly etched into her DNA, collecting is a pursuit that homeowner Amy Ager clearly shares with her family of serious antiques enthusiasts. In every room, on every tabletop and shelf, pieces of meaningful provenance stand in distinction—poised to reveal their stories. Above: Her living room alone, a quiet oasis of blue-and-white toile, gives sanctuary to her grandmother’s antique English walnut chest, her mother’s prized burled-walnut secretary, and a virtual sea of earthenware and porcelain acquired over the years.
