In the home of Link and Nancy Knauer, sconces, gilded gold mirrors, antiques, local art and Majolica pottery collections contrast with pastel walls. Each room is flooded with natural light that gleams on French and English pieces, and spaces with comfortable seating create a relaxed setting.
“Our home decor is very personal because it’s things that we love,” Nancy says. “It is not like it is dictated to us by anybody, it is just what we like and what we think fits for us and in our house. We love English, but we also like a country French look, too. So it’s not too formal or imposing.”
Unlike many historic homeowners, Link and Nancy were fortunate to also inherit the home’s blueprints. Link says they’ve come in handy on more than one occasion, revealing information like where the sump pump drains and when the trees were planted.
