Beauport | GREEN

Detail "The Golden Step Room" at Beauport | Sleeper-McCann House
Lately, I've been attracted to the color GREEN. No, not the Pantone color of the year green, but this green. Beauport Green. Set against this pale aqua, even better. Add a touch of opaque white and a dash of black, divine! All in a décor of simple American style... Henry David Sleeper style. Sleeper (1878-1934), collector, decorator, Boston bachelor, and interpreter of American style. "The Golden Step Room" was one of many dining rooms in Sleeper's summer house "Beauport" in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Beauport evolved over a period of twenty seven years. Though a serious curator, Sleeper had a flair for color and arrangement. From Beauport's museum book ~ "Daring color harmonies and the playful interaction of repeating forms are as important to his compositions as allusion and narrative."
