Living Room

Harry Morfit peeks from behind one of the pink velvet chairs that liven up the living room. Finely detailed curtains provide an extra level of polish.

Living Room

Slipper chairs and a tray table make a pretty spot for a nip.

Entry Hall

An antique Turkish Oushak rug in the entry ties together hues from adjoining rooms and grounds the tufted sociable.

Exterior

The house, once described as “the dog of the neighborhood” with dilapidated structure, has been restored and updated with solar panels by architect Robert Stiles.

Front Door

A white marble entrance at the front of the home leads to a rich navy door with silver hardware. Details such as the oversized lantern hanging above and elegant molding brighten up the entryway and give it a clean, interior feel.

Dining Room

In the dining room, daring orange, drawn from the hand-painted de Gournay wallpaper, and the high-gloss gray moldings and taffeta curtains that temper the vivid emerald silk background showcase the flair for color demonstrated by designer Melissa Warner.

“For a formal room, this doesn’t take itself too seriously,” says designer Melissa Warner. Chairs covered in tangerine “Versailles Velvet” from Kravet make a stylish statement.

Kitchen

Architect Robert Stiles had steel beams installed to create this open area that includes Anna’s dream kitchen and a breakfast banquette, as well as bookshelves with a built-in desk and a sitting area. Its airy atmosphere contrasts with the saturated palette in the rest of the house.

Kitchen

The kitchen’s openness is extended to the cabinetry, where built-in glass-fronted cabinets make it easy to see what’s inside. Stainless steel appliances and ebony-stained wood floors lend crisp contrast to the clean palette.

Breakfast Area

Family-friendly materials include faux-ostrich vinyl on the banquette and a custom-laminated linen seat on the rattan chair. Nicholas Coley’s school-bus oil painting appeals to kids and grown-ups alike, thanks to subject and technique.

Kitchen Sitting Area

This cozy corner adopts yellow hues from the school-bus oil painting nearby and creates a relaxed, beachy mood. A sofa with soft blue and yellow stripes complements the upholstered ottoman, which doubles as a table.

Powder Room

Wallpaper with leaping zebras and shimmering golden accents—mirror, fixtures, and lighting—jazz up the powder room.

Master Bedroom

Thoughtful details make the master suite special. “It’s my sanctuary,” Anna says. Designer Melissa Warner upholstered the tufted headboard in a warm beige to let the room’s smaller pops of color stand out. “If you start with a crazy couch,” she asks, “where do you go from there?”

Master Bedroom Details

Sweet details on the bedside table accentuate the room’s feminine palette. A white lamp features gold stripes, echoing the shimmery wallpaper behind; a small box from Wynne Alex mimics the paper’s dainty lines.

Master Bedroom Sitting Area

The bedroom’s palette—gold, coral, and creamy white—creates a warm glow that is echoed in the sitting area, which has a different balance of the same hues, featuring more neutrals. Its tone-on-tone wallpaper complements the floral pattern.

Dressing Room

Anna’s dressing room offers the soft geometry of custom fretwork on pocket doors, a wallpapered ceiling, and a Soumak carpet.

Details on the following slide.

Crystal doorknobs from Decorlux add glamour to the space.

Office

An attic office with flair—thanks to fretwork fabric shades and the dormer’s architecture.

Girl’s Bedroom

It couldn’t get much cuter—but Bea’s room is also designed for efficiency, with a built-in bed and shelves. Turquoise walls will be easy to change if she ever wants to, but she’ll be keeping the custom-made pillows, which sport appliqués of her silhouette.

Boy’s Bedroom

Strong color reigns in Harry’s room, where twin orange headboards measure up to horizontal stripes.
