TRADITIONAL CHARM WITH A MODERN FEEL
As a designer who takes her cues from the architecture and surrounding scenery, Diana Kennedy took a romantic
approach to the Bride's Bathroom, creating an updated Victorian look that is both Parisian and Chinoiserie.
Utilizing the room's great height, Diana painted the walls with wide stripes of cream and beige. She then framed
it with trellis wallpaper on the ceiling, drawing the eye upward in a playful reverie. Her style, after all, is to inject a twist of the unexpected.
Balance is also a key to Diana's design work so she softened the ambiance with a lovely skirt on the pedestal sink and added a reupholstered Ottoman along with a gold bamboo etagere. The result is a warm, dreamy space that combines traditional charm with a modern feel.

As with the Guest Bath, the Bride's Bath is notable in that it too has a full window overlooking the Great Lawn. It
also has, on the opposite wall, a fan window, allowing light into the Bride's room closet.
