Designer's Sketchbook

    Rendering by: Bonnie Lerner | Enhanced by: Ria Gulian |

This perfectly balanced living room, located on the sunny shore, is surrounded by several windows and a cushioned window seat. The paneled fireplace and crystal chandelier center a conversation area, inviting the homeowners to relax and enjoy music from the adjacent baby grand piano. A Persian-design area carpet softens the oak hardwood floor, cherry mahogany-framed Tommy Bahama sofa and the owners’ antique furnishings.
