King also has a knack with pattern and enjoys playing with shape and scale. In the great room, curtains in a graphic organic print outlined in silver thread on Belgian linen create a nice counterbalance to a pair of chairs upholstered in a petite herringbone fabric. The designer even mixed things up a bit in the bathrooms by combining penny, marble, porcelain, and travertine tile in differing forms and sizes. “The bunkroom was one of my biggest priorities,” King says of the upstairs space that sleeps up to 12 beneath the widow’s peak. “It has shiplap siding, a window seat, cotton bedding and curtains, and an adjacent shower and laundry room. The parents requested this space to be able to accommodate their children and friends.”
