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