Hartford Avenue, Wethersfield, Connecticut

 If a town could be a color, Wethersfield, Connecticut would be red.

In addition to the Comstock, Ferre & Company Seed Company which pioneered the selling of packaged seeds...

It seems only fitting that this 1924 four bedroom, three bath Colonial house sports the shade:

It's almost a patriotic duty to find a design to work with that wallpaper:

My inspiration came from Ballard Designs:

Hmm, red looks pretty good when it's offset by blue. Luckily for us, the house just happens to be adjacent to the beautifully blue Wethersfield Cove.

The listing is here.
