Homeowner and restaurateur Sarah Huggins shares a look inside her stylish and laid-back family home. See how bold design moves helped transform the space from ’90s drab to modern and on-trend.

The kitchen is an important space for Sarah, as it’s where she works on the menu for her new restaurant, Mary Be Kitchen. Bold patterned tile brings character to the space, while two-toned cabinets in light grey and off-white add subtle contrast. An office nook in the middle of the kitchen creates a work hub for Sarah. The original dining and family room was combined into one large great room where the family loves to hang out. The dining room was moved to the front of the house, and is spacious enough for entertaining guests — and enjoying everyday family meals. As a mother of three, Sarah wanted a retreat to unwind in, so she kept the master bedroom minimal and muted.
