A Vision Fulfilled

Josie & Will Tattersall scoured Raleigh Neighborhoods for just the right home for their family of five.  "We really wanted to be nestled back in a private neighborhood where our kids could ride bikes and play with neighbors in the streets," Josie said. They found that perfect neighborhood, but the dream house was not within sight.  Their desire for open space, a large, life-friendly kitchen, and more bedrooms could not be met in the homes they saw.  So, they decided to build.  A dream home for their family to create memories for a lifetime.

To decorate the space and make the new structure the home of their dreams, they enlisted designer, Mary Beth Paulson with Landor Interior Design.

Here are the lovely results...  

Family Room with Arteriors Sputnik chandelier in gold.
The ottoman's are covered in a geometric fabric by Kravet.

The black coffee table found in our showroom was a perfect fit for this large space.

Velvet quilted fabric by Thibaut.

Mary Beth & Josie decided on this Stanton wool sisal due to its softness and ability to clean.

The three pendants are from Hudson Valley.
When asked which room is her favorite, Josie immediately replied, "The kitchen is a perfect place for family to gather and such a peaceful, beautiful room." I couldn't agree more.  The stark white decor against the dark floors is always a beautiful statement.


Pillows are custom, and the fabric is by Scalamandre (Bamboo Grove).

I adore this Cole & Son paper in the half bath above & below.
The chandelier is by Currey & Co.

Master Closet (above & below) has a vanity with lambskin stool.

There are several things I love about the study.   The color, for one.  The walls are painted a rich gray by Benjamin Moore (Kendall Charcoal).   Second, the unique torches on either side of the sofa.  Third, the blend of traditional and contemporary touches. I love family portraits. The one above the sofa is of Will's great grandfather, from England.
A red Currey & Co. lantern hangs in the center of the room and adds color

Visual Comfort library lamps are placed over the bookcases, adding character and light.
Geometric stair runner by Stanton.

Above and below is the kids playroom with a fun, patterned carpet by Milliken.
The Map Fixtures were a great find from Form & Function.
I love these adorable bunk beds off the playroom. What a fun place for a sleepover.

I am a huge believer that good art work can make a room. This makes my point.
