The floor plan is left open to allow the space to feel as open as the woods that surround it. Also, the openness helped the Kauffman's to make the house their own with decorations and collectable from all around the world, which they did. In the study room, there was a staircase that was surrounded by exotic books and baskets that were hand weaved. Mrs. Kauffman continued the fill the house with sculpture and statues that she bought from Mexico when she would go to her house there. Even the paint of the covered walkway has the color scheme of Mexico, being almost a creamy salmon color.
