FROM TURRET TO TORTOISE
Linda Weisberg’s home, in the Waban neighborhood of
Newton, Massachusetts, has evocative architecture that
includes a gracefully curving staircase in a round turret. The
living room (facing page) has full-length arched windows
and a coffered ceiling; Weisberg painted the beams and the
trim. A lifelong collector, she is especially fond of the pair of
armchairs with faux-tortoiseshell veneers.
