Entryway / Gallery

Filled with art and comfortable places to perch, a long, narrow room off the front porch connects the living areas to the bedrooms and den at the FLOWER showhouse at Brierfield Farm

A light-filled space adjoining a covered porch functions as an entryway, gallery, and seating area. New furniture selections marry well with an antique piece used to display beloved family photos. Where the room connects to a vestibule leading to the bedrooms and den, a settee was made in a custom size to ensure ample clearance. For a full room tour, watch the video above led by Mary Evelyn McKee, interior designer of the 2021 Flower showhouse.
