Working with interior designer Ann Heath, Lisa wasted no time finishing both the basement and the room above the garage as family hangouts. She also transformed the kitchen into a crowd-worthy hub, converted a screened porch to an all-season sunroom, and warmed up the living room with a fireplace. “Above all, I wanted to make the house more suitable for a casual, kid-friendly lifestyle,” Lisa explains.
A sisal rug, neutral walls, and white sofas allow homeowner Lisa Schrenk Bouchard’s collections of blue-and-white Chinese export plates and delftware vases and urns maximum attention in the living room. Lisa trimmed her new fireplace with delft tiles. I love everything about this house!
