Refined Seating Area

A bay window becomes a sophisticated nook for private conversation.

A steeple and two obelisks provide a sculptural focal point against the bright window in the former living room of Tommy Smythe, associate designer with Sarah Richardson Design and co-star of HGTV's Sarah's Cottage and Sarah's House.

See more of Tommy's houses, from past to present, in our Tommy Smythe's Houses gallery.
