home with doves

The owner of this romantic Connecticut home loves French furniture. See the antique birdcage in the first image? Three lucky doves call it their home. I'm in love with the long curtains and the wall panels, which are custom hand-painted by de Gournay. I also find that combination of red carpet and yellow walls so elegant and grand. And I can't begin to tell you how much I adore the hats on the canes.
