Kate Long Stevenson and her sons, Henry, 13, and George, 10.
FORM & FUNCTION: The elegant curves of the Kravet swivel chair and antique sofa—upholstered in Perennials fabric with Samuel & Sons trim—contrast with the strong lines of the dark wood Arteriors end table, topped by a sculptural Villa & House lamp.
La Vie En Rose: Natural light spills into the living room through French doors, framed by custom drapes in a Joseph Noble fabric. The soothing palette, anchored by walls in Farrow & Ball “Blackened,” is complemented by pops of pink from two West Elm chaises re-covered in Kravat velvet.
CURVES AHEAD: In the open-plan, formal dining room, curvilinear pieces, such as the Apparatus Studio “Cloud” chandelier from Fritz Porter, Brooks Custom Woodworks table, and Lee Industries chairs, help continue the flow through the rooms.
A fireplace in the family room adds to the casual coziness of the space.
In the kitchen, Benjamin Moore “Simply White”-painted walls allow the stainless steel Wolf stove to pop against quartz countertops.
The showpiece entryway, dominated by a dramatic sweeping staircase, is flooded with natural light through a playful arched alcove and accented by white oak chevron flooring.
The garden room in the hyphen between the kitchen and the main home creates a nice pause, as well as a spot to soak up the view on vintage chairs paired with a Knoll “Saarinen” table.

MOODY HUES: Stevenson’s home office separates the living area from the primary suite on the main floor. Painted in Benjamin Moore’s dramatic “Witching Hour,” it provides a transition between the two spaces. The Schoolhouse “Plaza” brass chandelier adds drama, while the Stark wool rug softens the scene.
ON THE BRIGHT SIDE: In the family room, a gray Perennials fabric covers the Lee Industries sofa, while pops of purple from the Lee Jofa fabric-covered pillows and art by Leigh Suggs add interest.
