The woodwork dates to the 1790s when the kitchen was converted to the dining room by Andrew Craigie.

The ochre and yellow floral wallpaper was reproduced from samples extant in the house which may have been chosen by Alice Longfellow who favored the Arts and Crafts style. This pattern was named "The Norwich."
