home of distinction
JJim originally hadn’t planned a two-story foyer, but Sullivan
convinced him it was necessary to let more light into the home.
Afternoon sunlight streams in through the upper windows. Roxie,
a 3-year-old boxer, likes hanging out in the entryway, always
ready with a friendly greeting for anyone who comes through the
front door. Jim’s baby grand piano is a “future hobby,” he says. In
the meantime, it’s automatic and plays through the home’s sound
system. The living area features a neutral palette with gray and
blue accents. Jim and Kristen credit Leslie Stachowicz from Peridot
Interiors for helping filter through all the options and keeping a
consistent look and feel. Paintings commissioned from Richmond,
Virginia, artist Sunny Goode hang either side of the fireplace and
provide splashes of color.
