A Home an Aesthete Would Love

The bullfrogs are raging and I can’t sleep. Instead I wander through the intricate rooms of the house The New York Times asked me to profile, with its endless range of color and pattern, its glowing woodwork and sturdy china. An 1880s home on 72nd Street totally refurbished according to the principles of the Aesthetic Movement. Complete with twin gaslights outside. Oscar Wilde would be crowing.
