When the current owners saw the house, they felt it had been designed for them and bought it. The Gradella needlepoint rug in the living room is based on an original painting by Asmara artist Elizabeth Moisan. The needlepoint rug contains blue, yellow, gold, green, brown, white and coral – all the colors that were needed to create a balanced color palette for the room.
