Sunken Seating Area

A pop of natural red offsets paler tones.

Built-in cabinets topped by Tuscan columns separate — but don't visually close off — the kitchen and dining room from the great room in this weekend home. Soft green chenille armchairs enlivened by crisp white piping create cosy seating, a spot to debrief after a horse show or leaf through a favourite magazine. Tonal striped throw pillows in a pale palette pulled from the floral rug are a Sarah Richardson trademark. A cluster of brass candlesticks and a crimson-leafed maple branch clipped from outside are simple decor touches that lend impact.
