From the story scene takes place in 1700s Philadelphia. Hot and humid summer night. I added touch of lavender to the exterior hoping this would help with it.
General approach was to keep Int Ambiance well down for Low Key mood. Scene was lit for 360 so there are lights rigged from the top.. carefully, so as not to light the walls. On Static Two-Shot two 1K Fresnells did the Rim on the faces. Moonlight on window sheers was kept at Zone V (Incident). No Hard Lights... Rim plays with Opal. Pretty much lit for actors Block localizing crucial areas with "bubles" of light (all around TV style) and keying for candles motivativation. Ambiance was at 3 under and Keys at 1 over. Some color for Candle Flame. Hokums on the walls where the candelabras and paintings.

The lavender in the window is a nice variation from the usual CTB. I'm going to 'borrow' that.

What is "Hokums on the walls where the candelabras and paintings." ?
