Home decor

From left: The master bedroom, with east- facing windows that overlook the pool, was designed with the sunrise in mind. Them a morning person, so I love being able to see the sunrise.» (Remote-controlled blinds lower at the push of a button for those mornings when the sun comes up a little too early.) Jim jokes that Golden Retrievers Bella and Boo Rowdy “let [him] share the house» with them. A colorful focal point of the master bedroom is its large triptych, which Jim conceptualized and created with an artist friend and teacher. Leigh Tomlin, to memorialize the construction of the home through an artistic expression. Each of the three large panels contains the house plans and schematics, faintly visible beneath the images depicted in paint. Individually. The panels represent earth (painted with actuate sandstone and red dirt from the site), grass (painted over images of the house) and sky (painted over sun studies that determined the house’s south-southwesterly axis). The tree overlay (containing red bud and blackjack oak leaves from the site) illustrates the growth of the home, from conception to completion, and includes photos throughout the construction p hase. As well, as images of family. The finished piece was installed as Jim moved in.

Like most of the house, the master shower benefits from a generous infusion of natural light. Here, bamboo and other native plants create privacy beyond the full-sized window.

Clockwise from top left: Colorful pops of art — most of which are travel finds — waken the subtly huecf walls throughout the home. “I like bright art. so I wanted to keep the walls fairly neutral. Some of the best art is the view outside the windows.» Jim explains. The kitchen owes its streamlined design to the below-counter placement of its appliances. Brushed Indian granite countertops have a low sheen, which Jim chose for a specific reason. “Nature is the focal feature of this house and nothing inside takes away from that.» he says. The color of the stained concrete floors was not incidental, either. «I call that color Golden Retriever tan!’” he laughs. Jim enlisted the artistry of Jordan Nichols to create a mural of cherry blossom branches against a Tiffany-blue backdrop in a guest bathroom, where the recycled glass countertop from Castle Rock Countertops echoes the palette in various shades of broken glass. Floating amid a decor of modern design, a 1950s-era antique bar set that belonged to Jim’s grandmother reflects a fondness for preserving pieces of the past as well as an appreciation for a well-made Manhattan.
