I came across image first and had a feeling the rest of the house would be as wonderful. The home is the perfect blend of designer touches and real livability; beauty and function perfectly matched. It's obvious the shelves above aren't styled but in this case, don't you find that's better? Notice the model boat and print above the door and, of course, those amazing gray checkered floors and gray door. (all images via Carriage Properties here)

More patterned floors. Can't tell if that's antiqued mirror or wallpaper behind the shelves.

Love the fabric on the boxy wing chair to the left.

I could get used to this butler's pantry.
