In a stroke of serendipity, interior designer Emily Wyatt had purchased a collection of black-and-white Georgian architectural prints while traveling through England years before. A peaceful and airy pastoral mural by Susan Harter serves as the pièce de résistance of the dining room. In the kitchen, a tonal color scheme keeps the vibe fresh while an arrangement of pewter plates adds a sense of history.
The custom table—designed with a top from Holland MacRae and base by Iron Studio—was inspired by a bistro table the couple had fallen in love with while traveling. In keeping with the home’s Georgian aesthetic, a dutch door in the family room is dressed with curtains to match the fixed window on the other end of the fireplace. A cramped hallway was reconfigured to make way for a glamorous navy lacquer bar, which connects the original part of the home to the new addition.
The home’s original blueprints were framed to display in the stu A custom Stark rug anchors the primary bedroom, whose serene color palette was inspired by the whimsical drapery featuring Schumacher’s Cloud Toile fabric. In the pool house, a thoughtful arrangement of corner casement windows floods the tucked-away dining nook with natural light.
The bedroom is wrapped in a Penny Morrison wallpaper to avoid any visual breaks, effectively helping the small space live larger. Her plans called for a multitude of modifications, including an expansion off the back of the house for a new kitchen and family room and staircases being moved and reformatted for better flow. Similarly, landscape architect Jonathan Bussell transformed the front yard to better align with the home’s Georgian facade. While he addressed an ill-suited driveway “not so affectionately referred to as ‘the donut,’ given its lack of proper vehicle circulation and guest parking,” Bussell also removed the property’s overgrown boxwoods to make way for a new bluestone walkway and fresh plantings that work to highlight the home’s symmetry.
With a blue-and-white color scheme as her baseline, Wyatt selected a bevy of indoor-outdoor fabrics that could withstand small children zipping through during pool parties, and also stand up to the traffic of guests the couple regularly hosts for corporate gatherings. Notably, she worked with Bussell to seamlessly flow the pool deck’s brick hardscape onto the first floor, blurring the distinction between outdoors and in.
