Once again this week I’ve been at awe visiting a beautiful estate at Pompton Lakes, NJ. Filled with the most unique and quirky antiques — the second floor was almost entirely occupied by the study, with books touching every wall and ceiling.

The study upstairs covered with books
A craved wooden pantry door
1800s original woolen quilt
An original packaging box from a dress
One of the many beautiful wallpapers motives found in the house
