A horn chandelier from Ngala Trading crowns the billiard room, and a row of bleachers preserved from Candlestick Park in San Francisco before its demolition provides prime spectating real estate—and fodder for storytelling.
Randy Korando of Boxwoods Gardens & Gifts created the elevated flower arrangements for the dining room table. The magnificent chandelier was the clients’ own.
Hardware by Matthew Quinn Collection and a pendant light through Circa Lighting accent the blue cabinets in the butler’s pantry. The 19th-century stool is from Foxglove Antiques & Galleries.
Next to a gallery wall, a 1700s hand-carved walnut library table and benches create a place for the children to play games in the family room.
A seemingly three-dimensional wallcovering by Phillip Jeffries creates the illusion of depth in a glam bar bedecked with custom marble-topped cabinetry accented with brass hardware.
A cramped hallway was reconfigured to make way for a glamorous navy lacquer bar, which connects the original part of the home to the new addition.
Located at one end of the living room, the bar area feels like its own intimate space because of its dropped ceiling and patterned Cowtan & Tout wallcovering. Lighting is provided by two Jonathan Browning fixtures.
What might be designated as the formal living room in many houses because of its location next to the entry, this room was instead transformed by Carter Kay and Nancy Hooff into a study designed to come alive post sunset.
Wishing to create an inviting atmosphere, “as if the trees and sky beyond are giving you a welcoming hug,” the Modern Remains designers used a classic color combination of blue and white along with touches of green, all of which blend peacefully with the surrounding landscape, especially the babbling brook that runs alongside the house.
Situated independently of the cottage, the spring house sets itself apart with its bold decor. Conceiving her space as an “edgy but elegant spa,” designer Amanda Hickam made dramatic design decisions, including the ceiling’s eye-catching black-and-white striped wallpaper and the green velvet window valances.
Floral designer Mary Cox Brown of Marigold Designs in Birmingham has long been a trusted resource for Farmer, and her arrangements flow perfectly with his aesthetic.
As avid entertainers, the sophisticated emerald wet bar—which features its own walk-in wine cellar—is a favorite corner of the home for the couple. The artwork is by Renee Bouchon through Gregg Irby Gallery.
Stained cabinetry and a rustic pendant from Currey & Company create a handsome wet bar area that’s perfect for entertaining
“It’s clean and almost monolithic, but it’s also open and airy with punched out spaces and screen louvers. It has a quiet appeal.” —Bill Ingram
