The 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhome features Petra blinds and shutters, fabrics by Lee Sharp at Interior Yardage, and light fixtures from Brecher’s. A lovely antique church pew, perfect for tossing bags and other personal items, accents the front entryway.
Throughout the home, Sally’s classic, yet rustic, furnishings are complimented by cheerful pops of color and unique vintage-inspired details. For example, a gorgeous pair of turquoise Jonathan Adler lamps takes center stage in the living room. Other noteworthy artifacts, such as antique Chinese statuettes, and multicolored vases are on display for guests to admire.
The formal dining room is highlighted in rich browns and soothing creams, allowing the beautiful Schonbek chandelier to be the focal point.
The adjoining kitchen features high-gloss granite countertops, pure white cabinetry and open shelving to display glassware and dinnerware. A breakfast bar area looks over the living room for effortless entertaining.
"If you spoke to Sally for five minutes, you’d understand how perfectly this space represents her."
The first floor master suite boasts an adjoining spa-like bathroom complete with a soaking tub and walk-in shower. It includes access to a spacious closet and laundry room.
A convenient separate entrance to the garage is located off the laundry room as well.
This area is open, giving the homeowner an expansive view of the entire first floor.
At the top of the open staircase, dormer windows flood the second level landing with light. Each includes valuable storage under the fabric-covered window seats.
The two upstairs bedrooms echo Sally’s playful, charming style with brightly colored linens set against neutral walls.
Overall, the transition was a very positive experience for Sally, and it introduced her to the world of custom building. “The whole process was so much fun, and there are so many exciting things going on in architecture and design right now,” said Sally. “Who knows? I just might sell this one and build another.”
One of the most striking details is located in the upstairs bathroom. Two Queen Anne mirrors with a mod orange lacquered finish are suspended over an existing wall-mounted mirror running the length of the room. Sally purchased the orange mirrors at the Jonathan Adler store in New York City. Her original plan was to have the wall-mounted mirror removed, but Ed suggested layering them over the larger mirror. The two brightly colored frames effortlessly divide the dual-sink vanity and create a modern, multi-dimensional
effect. Sally purchased the multicolored oil painting in the bathroom on a recent trip to Italy, and loves how its bright blues and oranges compliment the color scheme. •
