Featuring: Michelle Hanna

Brian Gluckstein’s senior decorator, Michelle Hanna, leads us through her well-appointed home. Where others might have instinctively pared down in a 14-foot-wide house, she layered it on with elaborate mantels, antiques, welcoming seating areas, handsome panel moulding and layers of luxurious fabrics. Learn her tips for renovating a layout, installing built-in storage, maximizing space and displaying treasures.

See more photos of this kitchen in our September 2010 issue.
