The Living Room
Front and back doors open directly into a two-story-high living room, where spruce-planked walls and wood beams salvaged from
an 1890 Tennessee barn reflect the home’s rural setting and give the space a refined, barnlike feel. Interior decorator Phoebe
Howard balanced the rustic elements with color. “I added an air of elegance with a soft color palette that reflects the surrounding
sky and hills,” she says.
