A dining room in the Winchester Mystery House

An original dining room in the oldest part of the Winchester Mystery House, neglected since the earthquake of 1906, was completely restored to Gale Melton’s design. The walls, floors, and ceiling were carefully mapped, and a collage of original materials from the house’s storage vaults, and site-fashioned mouldings, plus new papers from Bradbury & Bradbury, combined to create a sense of spring in a room without windows.
