HOME & GARDEN

Natural PALETTE THE

Elegant accents, works of art and an organic ambiance showcase this homeowner’s creativity and passion for beauty in nature.

Nestled within a woodland setting of poplars and oaks in Ivy lies this homeowner’s gracious colonial home. The front path, lined with herringbone brick, leads to a lovely portico framed with stately pillars. The red door, accented with evergreen planters, adds to its all-around welcoming appeal. Originally from North Carolina, the owner first came to Charlottesville as an undergraduate student at the University of Virginia, returning to the area with her husband and young family for graduate school to study

landscape architecture. Upon entering this home, one is instantly put at ease by its peaceful feeling, and its organic sensibilities. The neutral, blue and green-gray hues are noticeably the influence behind the color palette throughout the home. An open floor plan with a light-filled kitchen and family room serve as the central hub for this family of five and Coco, their beloved Springer spaniel. A stunning handcrafted gold and beaded Ro Sham Beaux chandelier creates a dramatic focal point in the family room. Soft
