The talented seller and her designer, M. Naeve created this stunning living room 23' x 18' This light-filled room takes your breath away and I can could easily see this room on the cover of a design magazine. The antique fireplace is from a country home in the South of France and was sourced by Margaret Naeve during the orignal construction of the home.
