Now slipcovered in chintz, the sofa is the first John Phifer Marrs purchased out of college.

A telescope stands ready to home in on birds and wildlife, while on the opposite wall, the fireplace (not shown) cozies the space in winter.

A self-portrait of Dorothy Eisenbach displayed against the brick wall is among John's favorite paintings in his eclectic mix of original art.

The American cherry china cupboard is an heirloom.

John had fun with a guest bedroom's lime green palette.

The Victorian chair belonged to John's grandmother.

A bedside table is the only nod to formality.
