The antiques and reproductions Mary Jo and Jim have collected during their 37-year marriage were the foundation for Mary Jo’s design plan. The breakfast-area banquette above, for example, was built to seat people at an oval dining table they’ve had for 30 years.
Mary Jo says of the windows in the breakfast area, “I kept sending drawings back with arches drawn in until [architect David Neumann] said, Those curves aren’t going away, are they?”
