Besides a change of color, the redo entailed a change in how Stephen uses his rooms. “It was an opportunity to reevaluate,” he notes. “I decided to turn the small downstairs space off the kitchen that had been my dining room into a library and to incorporate a dining area in my living room upstairs.” All the major upholstered pieces are new Lee Jofa furnishings covered in Threads fabrics. “I adapted some of the frames in our collection to get the even more tailored look I was after,” he adds.
