A seafaring theme in the front hall pays homage to the house's heritage.

Crewel curtains and a Wilton carpet inspired the living room palette.

Rawley curls up in a living room chair.

A cow cutout keeps the dining room mood light.

Mary Helen Fabacher sits with Rawley near a half-wall between the family and dining rooms. Mousse, a chocolate Lab, keeps them company.

The Fabachers celebrate Texas with a star-studded library carpet.

The renovated kitchen's painted cabinets and floor exude a vintage feel.

Designer Nancy Serafini covered walls in the master bedroom with a paper-backed striped toile. The bedskirt, bed pillows, and shades were also fashioned from the toile.

In the guest bedroom, designer Nancy Serafini made clever use of limited space with a beadboard nook that creates storage space while nestling the head of the queen-sized bed. In a room that does not have enough space for bedside tables, niches on either side of the alcove provide a place for books and an alarm clock. The built-in fixtures contain lighting.
