Designed by interior designer Danielle Brustman of the Stylesmiths, the renovation of the so-called Matlock House is the owners’ second one in eight years. This time, they wanted to transform the kid-friendly home into something more grown-up.
The result is a moody aesthetic characterized by color-coded rooms, a la the Victorians. In the living and dining areas, which are adjacent to one another, sky-blue walls pair with white molding and millwork. Contrasting this softness is a deep blue accent wall painted with gold flecks in the living room, which is furnished with dark wood furniture (to match the hardwood flooring) and jewel-toned sofa and chair.
The family room is simpler and features white walls, but a hallway leading to the private quarters are lined in magenta carpeting, and one of the bedrooms is a monochromatic dusty pink. Here, the walls, fireplace mantel, side tables and a vase are finished in the same hue, creating an art-installation effect. Take a look.
