Once the architectural improvements were set, the Schultzes brought in Kristin Peake, principal of Kristin Peake Interiors, to complete the spaces with furniture, draperies, and accessories. In particular, she focused on the living room and master bedroom to fashion serene, comfortable surroundings in keeping with the couple’s tastes. “The homeowners’ goals consisted of having a finished home that was also conducive to entertaining,” Peake says.
Calling the results “Southern Colonial” in style, Rill is most satisfied with how the house’s classical columns, siding, brick base, and crafted timbers respond to the informality of the yard and natural setting. “The formal aspects combine with hints of whimsy in a way that offers a perfect balance,” he says.
