Wanda and Alan with Millie, their Labrador retriever.
Wanda and Alan King enjoy entertaining, and their spacious dining room is often comfortably filled with friends and family, including six grandchildren.
Outdoor furniture covered in a snappy coral fabric echoes the colors of Wanda's flowers.
Architectural designer J. Charles Burton designed the Kings' stone home.
A runner in red with gold accents ascends the staircase and coordinates with the fabric used for window dressings.
The kitchen breakfast area is casually classic, with walls covered in blue-and-white toile. Buffalo plaid at the windows frames the streams of sunlight that pour through the glass. Around the table, chairs are cushioned with a playful material in blue. A painted yellow corner cabinet houses Wanda's collection of blue-and-white ceramics.
The all-white kitchen allows patterns on the backsplash, windows, rug, and dishes in the lighted islands to show clearly.
In the middle of the family room, a scallop-shaped, lidded ottoman offers a good spot for storing and playing board games.
A peaceful refuge for Wanda and Alan, the master suite is colorful but more restrained than the home's public spaces. A pale green background offers a serene setting for the bed canopy and the floral fabric used for window treatments.
Overnight visitors at the King home are treated to a peaceful environment in the guest room, where there is a springlike mix of patterns. The Cowtan & Tout toile wallpaper provides a complementary backdrop to tufted slipper chairs covered in plaid from Scalamandré and a table skirt from Brunschwig & Fils.
The restful palette of the bedroom extends to the master bathroom, where white-and-green sheers gracefully hang from an arched window. Cabinetry and a vanity painted a soothing pale green create a relaxing spot to prepare for a hectic day ahead.
Colorful details give this home pizzazz.
Yellow tulips brighten the room.
Painted tile makes the kitchen cheery.
Blue and white, the ever-classic combination.
An inviting guest room.
An ideal setting for a light meal or card game.
