Make the most of a narrow home — thanks to a soft, visually expanding palette, sleek design and smart storage — with inspiration from designer Lisa Rogers. Tour 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 and beachy accents inspired by the lake view.
