An Arched Entrance
An archway frames the living room vista from the entrance hall. An 18th-century Italian table from John J. Nelson Antiques holds a pair of twin 19th-century French oil lamps, which light a sofa beyond.

A Den of Comforts
As an homage to the signature lime-washed paneling of David Adler and Frances Elkins, Nye lightened the den's somber mahogany to this mellow café au lait. Club chairs in a Cowtan & Tout linen velvet gather around a Crate & Barrel coffee table that Nye customized with a tufted leather top.

Bathe in Blue
The master bathroom wainscoting of Portuguese glazed tiles was installed by the former owner's decorator. "Aren't they gorgeous?" says Nye. He slipcovered a Pottery Barn side chair in a complementary blue-and-white linen stripe from Rogers & Goffigon.
