A Blue Ridge Cottage’s Stunning Transformation

Outfitted for grandchildren, the basement bunkroom, which sleeps eight, was one of the much-needed additions designed to suit this growing family.

The land behind the house was unusable, so the Taylors worked with landscape architect Tom Lucido of Lucido & Associates to incorporate family-friendly spaces. “We built a 12-foot retaining wall to create a huge lawn with a barbecue area and fire pit,” the interior designer explains, “as well as a large deck with a hot tub.”

Inside the home, the clients had one specific request: to incorporate as many comfortable reading nooks in parts of the house with an eastern exposure as possible. “The owner loves to read, so we put lots of bay windows throughout,” says the architect. “There’s a pair of reading chairs in one room so that when the owner gets up around 4 a.m. to read the paper, he can catch the sunrise.”
