The gold and crustal candelabrum on the dining room table belonged to an ancestor of Mr. Braddock, John Taylor and formerly was in the famous Octagon House in Washington, D.C. A pair of antique hand painted plates are used on either side of the ornately gold framed mirror.
Off-white carpeting and draperies with a design in gold form the background for the living room of the John Taylor Braddock home at 4002 Calle de Garden. A photograph, finished in oir, of their son Jack is mounted on one wall. Matching love seats covered in an aqua-toned fabric are used on either side of the off-white davenport. Furniture is fruitwood.
What is now the sunroom formerly was a part of the open patio. Bleached mahogany, stained walnut, was used for the wall of built-ins which provide storage space as well as an enclosed bar at the south end. Flooring is Mexican tile and tones of bright blue and green are used in the decor. The divider in the foreground separated the sunroom from the hallway which leads to the foyer and to the bedroom wing.
Open work draperies in a beige tone with a darker stripe are used over the sliding glass doors going from the sunroom to the patio. The antique scrolls on the wall to the right were found by the Braddock in the Orient. The walnut table with matching chairs in an off-white tone with a gold design is used for games and cards as well as for dining on occasion.
