On the second-floor landing, built-in bookcases continue from the study below. The shelving acts as storage and a gallery
for all things sea-related. "The shelves' style and finish feel nautical," says Allyson, "so we enhanced that with maps, the
ship's wheel, and other items that feel like they were collected over time." A cozy reading nook in the window-wrapped space
features twin club chairs in a beachy plaid, a floor lamp with a striped silk shade, and a soft Berber wool rug.
