Limestone quarried from the same source as the Louvre for its façade, classic parquet de Versailles floors in the living room, and gilded door hardware: all the finery associated with royal chateaux in France. So too of a special home in Greenwich, CT, where a transplanted Frenchman enlisted a team of French artisans and the best craftsmen, and four years of requisite work, to make an authentic French estate. The entry opens onto a grand double staircase and the house was arranged to include a graceful enfilade of rooms also associated with places likes Versailles. The kitchen is built on antique floor tiles painstakingly culled from France, while the more informal family room has floors made of oak salvaged from the Orient Express. Careful not to overdo it, the master bedroom features crisp white linens and simple silk panels to dress the windows.
