As you already know, a lot of entertaining goes on at Chestnut Cottage. We often entertain in our gathering room, which opens off the kitchen.

When we have large crowds at Chestnut Cottage, I often move the coffee table into the master bedroom and put a skirted table for eight in its place.

That yields a table for eight in the kitchen, a table for eight in the gathering room, and eight more in the master bedroom. I love the peacefulness of our bedroom and the fact that I can see into the gathering room.

We love having overnight guests at Chestnut Cottage and have two guestrooms for our special guests.

More shades of blue!

Our powder room certainly has no shortage of blue and white!

Of course my husband Wells wanted equal time for his little wine cellar downstairs!

Hope you have enjoyed a little visit to Chestnut Cottage. Thanks again to the Victoria magazine for the lovely feature in your October issue!
