In the gleaming white kitchen, the Harris’ enjoy open views of the dining room and family room. An eat-in breakfast area is topped with a marble island by Counter Culture Plus and accented with pull-up barstools from Ballard Designs. Ample custom cabinetry by Architectural Kitchen and Bath and stainless steel appliances are among the many functional perks in the kitchen.
When asked what inspired her to complete the renovation, Jennifer said, “It actually all started with the dining room table.” She and her daughter purchased the striking antique herringbone table at a local consignment store, and that piece was the catalyst for the rest of the renovation. The banquette and chairs are covered in a Ballard Designs fabric that coordinates perfectly with the bar stools. Most of the furniture in the Harris home was purchased from Lexington Furniture, and the light fixtures are primarily from Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn.
Another charming holiday detail is the customized Lazy Susan, purchased from Two Chicks and Co. and engraved with the family name and decorated with more pine boughs, bows, and a burlap-wrapped candle.
The master bedroom achieves a mood of luxury and tranquility, with cool tones of white and dove gray. The bed was purchased from Serena and Lily. The headboard’s tall scale and confident curves make it the perfect minimalist statement piece. To the left of the bed is a lovely window seat flanked by twin, mirrored cabinets. The cabinet on the left houses a television on a swivel platform, and the cabinet on the right contains additional storage. Other alluring elements in the room include a stylish spherical chandelier and glass display case. On the opposite side of the room,
an entryway opens to a beautiful master bathroom and separate closet areas for the couple –Dave’s in mahogany, and Jennifer’s in white.
The master bath is stylishly outfitted in custom marble tile from The Tile Shop. The couple had a window removed from the rear wall and the former Jacuzzi bathtub converted into a steam shower. All of the plumbing fixtures in the home are from Ferguson.
The guest bedroom is a peaceful and rustic retreat, with grass cloth wallpaper and a striking arrangement of mounted antlers and equine photography from House. The bedding was purchased from Serena and Lily, and the Harris’ had the monogramming done locally. The navy and white lamps from House coordinate perfectly.
Finally, the last bedroom is fondly referred to by Jennifer as the “grandkids’ room”. This is where her twin grandchildren, Elle and Ford, stay when they come to visit. A pair of cribs faces the twin Serena and Lily beds, and between the beds is an antique piece of furniture that was given a fresh coat of paint.
The Harris home is a wonderful example of how a cohesive design and thoughtfully chosen furnishings can create a space that is both elegant and livable. “When we built this home 19 years ago, we knew we were here to stay,” said Jennifer. And now, with its fresh new look, the family is ready to enjoy the next chapter of their lives.
