Make the most of a narrow home — thanks to a soft, space-enhancing palette, sleek design and smart storage — with inspiration from designer Lisa Rogers. She tours through the house she tailor-made for two empty-nesters: TV News commentator Patricia Lovett-Reid and her husband Jim Reid. See how she tied together the warm living area, serene bedrooms, marble-clad bathroom and envy-inducing dressing room with organic, beachy accents inspired by the lake views. Plus, set your rooms abloom! Senior design editor Margot Austin outlines the freshest way to use today's bright and oversized florals. Then, discover the interactive-touch buttons and sculptural shapes that star in designer Jeremy Kehoe's bespoke wood furniture.
