What To Look For:

  • The fleur-de-lys on the ceiling medallion and the windows adorned in an Elizabethan style.
  • The 100-year-old arched door, originally built for a church.
  • The unique two-column portcullis bookcase, designed and built especially for the room.
  • The hand-made suit of armor, created in an Italian-Germanic style by armourer Robert McKenzie.
  • Lochman Manor is a 42 room English Tudor mansion, built in the middle of the past century. This magnificent Hillsborough property has been used as a designer showcase prior to this decorator show house.
  • The new home owner desired a library/office for her husband. She described it as "castlely". I do hope what you see does remind you of the days long gone in Camelot.
  • The fluer-de-lys hand painted canvas is taken from Pindler & Pindler's Hearst Castle Collection which is shown as sofa pillows and repeated in the custom rug.
  • The Elizabethan style draperies are my rendition of the period style dresses worn. A Schumacher silk intricately lines the panel adorned with gold bullion in a goblet pleat.
  • The plaster treatment was mixed with the paint color and then textured. Applied over the top were 6 cans of shoe polish (article featured in The San Jose Mercury News).
  • The arch door, which is over 100 years old, was carefully extracted from a church and replaced the 2 swinging rectangular doors. This room being across from the kitchen was used as a butlers pantry. I was able to center the arch door directly across from the kitchen.
