The 'Seven Oaks' Estate  Greenwich, Connecticut.
Designer Show-House.





Michael 'opened-up' a windowless  powder room with glimpses of the 'Seven Oaks' landscape. 

Beyond the realistically-painted curtains rises Dunnellen Hall: summer home of Leona Helmsley - the client's late neighbor who left her dog a $12-million inheritance. 

(The lucky Maltese, "Trouble", pokes his head out from under a curtain near the sink.) 












In homage to the 'Seven Oaks' name, Michael incorporated oak-leaves into a trompe l’oeil basket of flowers near the patio door. 

The home-owner's name is 'Rose', thus three specimens were incorporated into the vignette, honoring her. 





Apropos to the home's neo-Georgian design, an 18th-century style trompe l'oeil plaster-relief is painted above the kitchen's center island. 

The oak-leaf wreath is flanked by a banner reading: "SEPTEM QUERCI" ("Seven Oaks" in Latin).

The landscape represents the actual landscape at Seven Oaks. --It is what one might see if a window were really cut there.
Neighbor, Leona Helmsley's lucky Maltese, "Trouble", pokes his head out from under a curtain near the sink.
The illusion of actual curtains was created by imagining the light-fixture shedding its light on the fabric. Note the illusion of bunching at the top where the fabric meets the cornice.
