The layout is about Firestone Farm as it looked in the 1880's. We never miss a stop here on our visits to Greenfield Village. There's always plenty going on, yet the pace is relaxed and unhurried. I chose to work with olive tones to give the layout a nostalgic, old-fashioned feeling. The white scallop border and coral floral patterns provide contrast and variety.
