In order to keep the home’s design neutral, without being too feminine or masculine, Chris used antique pieces that have sentimental value and she wove her favorite color, black, into the scheme inside and out. For the most part, the home carries small pops of color with neutrals and whites, but black is present in every room.
The guest bedroom uses two outdoor lights and vintage metal storage tables from the office of a school nurse. Plenty of fluffy pillows invite guests to relax. A curtain was added for privacy over the glass French doors adjoining the gathering room.
With their busy lifestyle, Chris’s love of home and her design plan gives the couple a simple respite from the hectic business world. The home’s landscaping reflects a love of outdoors, with lots of green winter grass, and a wonderful area to grill and entertain eight months of the year. “We love having company over, spending quality time on the patios, playing with our two pups or gardening,” says Chris. “We’ve found our little slice of heaven here.”
