Although the couple originally planned to sell the house, it became Monique's laboratory for honing her "timeless modern" design aesthetic. It includes plenty of earthy tones, worn leather, laboratory glass, science memorabilia, vintage industrial pieces and natural textures. Monique's look has become so popular that she opened her own retail shop, Enjoy Co.
Emily Winters: Describe how you feel every time you come home.
Monique: It feels like I am on vacation. The house has a strong calming [effect] on me. And it's great that we have an acre of land but are still in the town of Granville.
Keith: I love to walk up to our house. It's so tall at four stories; it has a presence and a personality. The house has watched a lot of things happen from its vantage point on the hill. I also feel good to live in such a strangely beautiful place.
An oversize K from a Texas antiques dealer makes a family statement in the sitting area off the kitchen. The Keegans like to shop for their home everywhere they travel, seeking out unusual antiques stores or boutiques. Locally, Appletree Auction is a huge resource. Other favorite sources for their finds are ABC Carpet & Home in New York and Ikea.
The master bedroom needs no headboard. An expansive wall of windows behind the bed frames the beautiful woodsy view.
An additional living room on the home's lower level gives the couple's teenage son, Maxfield, plenty of personal space.
The back entry is a place to kick off shoes and stash coats and bags.
Through lush landscaping and plenty of potted plants, the Keegans created a natural oasis around their roomy hot tub.
