WILTON — French doors open into the dramatic two-story entrance foyer of the Nantucket Gray colonial house at 7 Spruce Meadow Court, revealing a custom inlaid wood medallion of a Rose of the Winds, otherwise known as a compass rose.
Such a “flower” is generally found on a nautical chart and indicates the four directions including True North. The www.pbs.org website identifies True North as “the internal compass that guides you successfully through life. It represents who you are as a human being at your deepest level. It is your orienting point — your fixed point in a spinning world.”
