Everything the Jameses own can work in most any room in their house. “If you look at a piece of furniture and it screams only living room to you, skip it,” Mia urges. Her own living room is the perfect example. Everything in the space—the sofa, two club chairs, and two armchairs—has lived and functioned in other areas of the home. Mia re-covered them for their current location, but her fabric choices allow her to pull them into other rooms if needed. The ability to rotate furnishings is part of the home’s peaceful, tranquil feeling. “I think continuity is really an essential part of everything I do,” Mia says.
