A Look Inside a Vibrant and Dynamic Georgian Home

A Look Inside a Vibrant and Dynamic Georgian Home
To deal with a narrow family room, Howard pushed the seating area up against a staircase and designed an ottoman with an inset tray.

Perhaps the most dramatic mood change occurs in the master bedroom. “It’s a room wrapped with windows,” Howard says. “So I wanted to make use of the play of light with pearlescent finishes.” Shimmery gray walls envelop the room in a misty glow, and touches of lavender play off the soft gray of wool, satin, velvet, and leather. The feet of a slipper chair are painted in silver leaf; the television cabinet at the foot of the bed is upholstered in pearlized leather and finished with silver nailheads; and a frothy crystal chandelier illuminates the space. Satin and wool draperies enclose the room, reducing noise and cocooning the retreat with their thick, soft folds. It’s a space for finding peace and rest, a room ultimately designed for comfort that also achieves upper-register style.
