"I love the idea of big impact in a tiny space. The amazing poppy color and giant 3-foot-tall peonies work with a collection of art to create an unforgettable moment when you walk in. You’re drawn up the staircase because you want to see the next gallery wall of original artwork.” - Lindsay Coral Harper
“I looked to Southern style past for inspiration and took cues from icons such as Colefax and Fowler, Billy Baldwin, William Haines, and Frances Elkins in designing the dining room. The formal Southern table is set for entertaining but the unexpected layering of mixed china patterns and hues lends a playful and relaxed feel." - MA Allen
“We watched every episode of Downton Abbey and became inspired by the characters, where they live, their lifestyle, and their fashion. This kitchen is the marriage of an 1840s paneled library and the 1940s machine age.”-Michael Mitchell
“It’s a pleasing coral that gives a warm glow to the pretty faces of ladies playing cards, taking afternoon tea, or penning correspondence. Coral, celadon, aqua, and peacock with punches of citron create a layered, elegant palette. The tone is vibrancy partnered with delicacy.” - Mallory Mathison Glenn
