Occasionally, McBrearty’s choices are a bit more romantic, as with the amethyst Murano glass chandelier anchoring the dining room or the blush-colored glass pendant presiding over the master bedroom sitting area. In each case, sound architecture—curvaceous door openings, intricate millwork, complex ceilings—helps set the stage for her scrupulous selections.
With the home complete, McBrearty reflects fondly upon the overall project. “When you’re lucky enough to be involved from the ground up, the result is something so harmonious,” she says.
