Catherine Olasky and Maximilian P. Sinsteden with Olasky & Sinsteden used several works from artist Martin Mooney, an English oil painter fascinated with and influenced by the Dutch style of still life, in a traditional library.
This elegant entryway welcomes you into the home with a beautiful antique dresser topped with unique vintage lamps. The oriental rug and still-life oil painting are classic pieces that complement the style well and give it that traditional elegance.
This lovely living room becomes a still life in and of itself thanks to the thoughtfully-appointed furnishings and modern accents. The painting on the wall was done by the grandson of architect Stanford White, who put an addition onto the home.
Awash in cheery color, this foyer tricks the eye by hanging a large painting of a room above the console. The bright palette of the artwork is picked up in the rug and striped accent pillow making the space itself a compelling still life.
Cindy says her twins keep her home life happy and inspiring. "Before that, I still lived in the same place. My kids just weren't there and it did nothing for me," she says. "It's so fun and bright compared to the way it used to be."
With all-white cabinets a textured, black backsplash, this kitchen is modern design at its finest. Strong shapes and sharp lines make it feel clean and simple but also full of character. Potted succulents give the room small pops of color and life, while still keeping decoration minimal.
