"I am very fond of periwinkle blue and this color appears in drifts throughout the house. As you pass from the dining room and enter the breakfast room the blue is repeated on the slipcovers of the chairs" @johnsaladino @saladinofurniture #tulipchairs

"The cool colors, minimal furnishings, and lack of extraneous detail in the master bedroom make it a sanctuary where one can get away from the jangle, bustle, and detritus of the day." @johnsaladino @saladinofurniture

"I made the dining room square, so that it could accommodate four separate round tables for large parties. When this happens, the chandelier, with its alabaster shades, is disconnected, leaving the ceiling down lights, sideboard lamps, and numerous candles to provide the lighting." - @johnsaladino @saladinofurniture

"A table top is an inviting opportunity to make a still life. Here a collection of 18th century manganese Delftware, Chinese vases, rare snuff boxes, a carved 18th century sleeping lion, a French olive/storage jar, and pink ranunculi stand on a Louis XII table." @johnsaladino @saladinofurniture

"I upholstered the walls and ceiling of the guest room in natural linen, making it acoustically and visually calm." @johnsaladino @saladinofurniture #JohnSaladino

"The sofa and chaise from my collection are modern neighbors to the 18th century American painted table and the Connecticut spindle-back Windsor chair." @saladinofurniture #spiralchaise #Anglesofa #JohnSaladino

"The kitchen is divided into three areas: for cooking, for eating, and, in the foreground, for sitting around the fire." @johnsaladino @saladinofurniture

"The soft, linen covered walls and exaggerated cornice temper the severity of the modern proportions of the rooms, while the sofa is upholstered in the same fabric as the walls in order to maximize the feeling of space." @johnsaladino @saladinofurniture #LandauSofa

"The British officer's canvas and leather campaign chairs are like old friends; they lived in my rooms when I was a student at Yale. The leather Shelter sofa, long a part of my own furniture collection, unfolds into a bed for extra guests." @saladinofurniture #JohnSaladino

"The blue flowers of Solanum rantonnetti 'Grandiflorum', which are native to California, play at the feet of eucalyptus trees near the guest house."

A Pacific Retreat: "The terra-cotta floor tiles unify the indoor and outdoor spaces, contributing to the illusion that the house is a pavilion and also that it is larger than it is in reality."
