    Do you have a list of the paint colors used in the restoration of the Edison House. In particular I was interested in the dining room which is so beautiful. We visited last year and we enjoyed the tour very much.

    So sorry to hear of the potential hurricane/ destructive force, and praying it won’t be so awful! However, asking, please send me the website or if need be, the paper copy of the Reciprocal Membership available throughout the USA when one is a Member of the Edison Ford Estate.
