A Sunroom to Bask In

Set just off the Dining Room and overlooking a gorgeous backyard, this glass-enclosed space found new purpose as a sunroom.

  • A rattan sectional provides a historic reference and a space for a group to gather.
  • Wooden shell chair serves as a nod to the tree-lined setting.
  • Starlight cutouts add whimsy to pendant lighting.

Kitchen Drama

This dramatically scaled Kitchen brings a sense of theatre to everyday meal prep.

  • A black stone floor with a rusticated edge gives the space depth.
  • The clerestory above the kitchen island floods the room with saturated sunlight.
  • Rich-grain oak cabinetry brings in a rustic note, in line with the rest of the home.
  • Industrial-inspired pendant lights amp up the feel of a working kitchen.

The Palm Room

An awkward landing between the first and second floors is re-envisioned as a sun-drenched sitting area.

  • Filled with palms and other greenery, this interior conservatory creates a feeling of whimsy and fun.
  • Trellis ceiling work and a garden-inspired pendant add visual interest.
  • Ann Sacks concrete tile with interlocking circle pattern gives the space another playful pattern and color to delight the eye.

A Sense of Arrival

This Entryway uses peacock blue wood paneling as a wink to the traditional and, in doing so, creates a dramatic entrance.

  • Foil wallcovering on the ceiling captures and plays with the light.
  • Antique benches are upholstered in silk.
  • Heirloom paintings and an Oriental-style rug serve as points of juxtaposition.

Living Large

This shared Living and Dining Room uses a calming, neutral palate to accommodate clusters of large-scale furniture.

  • Huge pendant lights anchor seating groups.
  • Grand mirror behind the dining area creates the drama of an ever-expansive space.
  • Durable fabrics and carpeting welcome enthusiastic use.
