An Fómhar (Mí Lúnasa)
Panning left, this view shows a portion of the second colonade, dining room windows, and a great view of the red kitchen carpet—removed immediately after the living-dining room carpet. This tasteful floor covering was glued down to the original 1920s blue and ochre checked linoleum. Interesting to see the original stuff, the colors had a great Maxfield-Parrish-esque quality. It was also patched multiple times with hundreds of small tacks.
