The demure pattern and glorious colors of a radiant floral antique stencil design that once decorated the floor of a pre-Revolutionary house in Williamsburg were transplanted in this New England dining room.

While the house was built in the early- to mid-1900s, it was remodeled in the mid-1960s — as seen here in this vintage photo.

The key was covering the floor with decorative 18-inch-square vinyl tiles that were slightly textured, which made them look like they were painted. It was the perfect background for the stenciled floral art.

Elsewhere in the room, one wall was paneled in rough barn siding, which ended in an accordion-fold door made by joining four weathered boards with piano hinges.

There was also a blend of early design and modern technology in the blanket chest that served as a buffet — all its surfaces were laminated plastic.

The printed cotton curtains had a floral print with red flowers on a blue background — both colors identical to those used on the floor and other room decor.
