Triplets Katrina, Kimberly, and Karl sprawl in the living room, which reflects their mom's love of blues and painted antique furniture mixed with such modern glass and acrylic pieces as the cocktail table. A Parisian floor lamp illuminates the Gustavian settee.
Living Room Details
To better suit the petite owner, a curvy 18thcentury Swedish settee replaces an oversize California sofa.
A 19th-century French mirror and antique Swedish clock illustrate Kathryn's love of painted pieces. The buffet is topped with 19th-century painted and silver-leafed altar sticks and an old white urn with chipping paint.

Early 1800s Italian dining chairs in Louis XV style can be seen from the living room.
Comfy Family Room

One of the family room's focal points, the Gustavian apothecary cabinet is Kathryn's favorite Swedish antique. Introduced in the fun mix is a Directoire chair and an old iron cocktail table.
