When budget constraints prohibited an addition, Laurel converted a laundry room into a breakfast area to free up space for the egg-shaped island. Blue cabinetry links the cooking and dining areas and the honey-hue honed limestone counters and sleek iridescent-glass tile backsplash add to the room’s breathtaking drama. The living room provides a place for the family of six to gather and watch television. The atmosphere is relaxed but fits in with the more sophisticated areas. In the master suite squares of mulberry paper create a backdrop for a mix of Asian inspired furnishings. “I wanted a textural paper that was subtle and would keep the space open but would still have drama,” she explains.
