Kathleen Newhouse Interior designer Kathleen Newhouse loves a challenge. For her, each new space she designs is a chance to represent the homeowners��� distinct story through a beautiful collection of furnishings, art, accessories, and architecture. Constantly in touch with her surroundings, Kathleen adeptly discerns how each room fits the existence of its inhabitants and builds her designs around those clues. Finding inspiration in everything from world travel to local nature, Kathleen uses her keen sense of color and talent for spatial planning to assemble exactly the right elements to complete a room. Knowing which pieces should take the spotlight and which should play a smaller supporting role results in sophisticated, fresh rooms that are classic yet comfortable. Above Left: The open, inviting, and elegant living room offers Old World charm with modern-day amenities��� truly the best of both worlds. The fabrics and monotone colors in the room define the space, with black working as a dramatic grounding color. Above Right & Facing Page: The trick in an addition is to make sure the new portions of the home flow seamlessly into the original rooms. The library demonstrates clean, classic lines in a Regency style, allowing the architecture of the home to stand out; a dramatic chandelier, wooden beams, and a very high cathedral ceiling add to the grandeur. Tiered swags and panels���iridescent dark grey and gold swirl print, accented with beaded trim���on the windows offset the oversized limestone fireplace. Truly an exquisite room, the library is upholstered in a mix of chenille, leather, velvet, and silk. Photographs by Norman Sizemore
