An eye-catching green-and-white striped chair adds a vibrant pop of color to this kitchen's built-in desk. The desk offers a convenient spot for paying bills, sorting mail and studying while maintaining a watchful eye on the kitchen.
In the foyer, an old hardwood floor was re-planed and repurposed to create an accent wall. A unique metal art wall hanging was custom created by Jimmy Don Holmes of JDH Iron Designs in Crawford, Texas. The piece was given to homeowner Bill Graham by Chip and Joanna as a tribute to his service to the country.
