The 1785 Reverend John Mottey House, also known as Centre Farm, is a beautiful, sprawling farmhouse listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The interior design created spaces for modern living while celebrating the existing historic structure. A new farmhouse-style kitchen became a center point, opening to a living room on one side with a sunny, glassed breakfast room on the other. To create the home’s stately yet vibrant palette, historically accurate paint and trim colors we used. Shades of blue, a favorite color of the client, are woven throughout the home, and celebrated with a spectrum that ranges from powdery gray-blues to statement-making royals. Hand-painted stencils grace some formal spaces, adding beauty with a reference to Federal-period style.
