About the project (text supplied): A fresh take on traditional style, this sprawling suburban home draws its occupants together in beautifully, comfortably designed spaces that gather family members for companionship, conversation, and conviviality. At the same time, it adroitly accommodates a crowd, and facilitates large-scale entertaining with ease.

The grand staircase

This balance of private intimacy and public welcome is the result of Soucie Horner’s deft remodelling of the original floor plan and creation of an all-new wing comprising functional spaces including a mudroom, powder room, laundry room, and home office, along with an exciting, three-room teen suite above.

A quietly orchestrated symphony of greyed blues unites this home, from Soucie Horner Collections custom furniture and rugs, to objects, accessories, and decorative exclamation points that punctuate the carefully synthesised interiors. A discerning demonstration of family-friendly living at its finest.
