In the sitting room, quartersawn oak paneling with a whitewashed finish enhances a limestone fireplace tucked into an arched inglenook.
The dining room's antique host and hostess chairs were re-covered and monograms stitched onto the back cushions. "We wanted to create family heirlooms," says designer Heather Dewberry.
A banquette covered in "pleather" backs the island. Barry Dixon chairs are covered in Ultrasuede--another easy-care fabric. Floors are hand-scraped walnut. Lead caming in graceful semicircles embellishes mirror-front corner cabinets.
In a hallway, turquoise oyster plates and a giant clamshell are a nod to Andee's Louisiana heritage.
Durable fabrics such as Ultrasuede cover furniture to withstand traffic from the swimming pool just outside this terrace-level rec room. "We dialed up the color when we came downstairs to the terrace level," says designer Heather Dewberry.
A Hawaiian quilt motif was reinterpreted as an appliqué on the fronts and backs of side chairs.
The master bedroom's custom bed has a scalloped wood canopy and headboard upholstered in blue velvet. A glazed blue linen covers the underside of the canopy and the wall behind the headboard.
In the master bath, a Waterworks soaking tub is centered in an alcove.
The triple-gabled house is wrapped in brick with a thin, tinted stuccolike coating.
Jeff and Andee Blauser and their children Cooper and Abbie.
