That's Entertaining
The antique English banquet table in Mindy's dining room (surrounded by chairs originally from a Newport, Rhode Island, "cottage") can easily seat 16. This room is a smorgasbord of color ("I like the mix"), from the shimmering reds of the Persian rug, purchased at auction, to the sunburst tones of the Travers striped silk curtains and the burnished green of two antique Chinese pickle jars. Mindy marvels at the craftsmanship of the handpainted de Gournay wallpaper: "I'd love to go where they make it and just watch them."
