The Kansas City home of noted lamp designer Barbara Cosgrove is about keeping things light—in every sense of the word.

Barbara created the photo montage in the entryway by copying family snapshots. Memories are on the walls and always in the making throughout the home; her three young grandchildren live close and visit often. With canvas slipcovers and plenty of floorspace, these rooms are ready to party—kid style—even while looking serene and sophisticated. No room is roped off, and rules about couch wrestling do not apply here. Barbara doesn’t just decorate to suit her style; she decorates to accommodate her life.
