A Classic Remake
Designer Sara Tuttle and architect David Jones restore this 1905 Maryland home to its former glory with authentic details, bold color, and elegant style.
Reception RoomA skirt that works and wows.
Draped in green silk and edged in yellow tape trim, this 60-inch round table is the focal point of the room, designed with hospitality in mind. "The owners love to entertain, and they wanted to maintain the house's historic formal entry space for their parties," says Sara. "The silk-skirted table establishes a dressed-up feel, but the glass top protects it from everyday wear and tear."
A few grand gestures—the large landscape painting, the vibrant green hue of the table skirt, the oversize lantern, and the lively ikat bench—infuse this otherwise neutral space with some daring touches without diminishing its sophisticated style.
