Kay had always loved French Country design for what she calls its “softness.” This decorating style is identified by its curving lines, chandeliers, and antiques and is known for being comfortable. Achieving this feeling in a brand-new home with an open floor plan isn’t easy, but Pandy’s talent and Scott’s vision proved a successful collaboration.

Neutrals usually override color in French Country style, and Pandy followed suit . A favorite painting by artist Emily Ozier that hung in the kitchen of the Worleys’ previous home provided the perfect color palette for the new interiors. Soft French blues with lots of neutrals were picked for furnishings and fabrics, and the walls in the home were veiled in a warm cream.

As a member of two book clubs, book storage has become an issue for Kay. So built-in bookcases were created on the stair landing and also surrounding the French doors in the kitchen’s dining area. The garden beyond the French doors includes romantic European elements like a fountain and a woven-willow fence. And the most perfect thing about the space is that Kay can see it from her kitchen window.
