Floating shelves above and on both sides of the fireplace give the family room a clean, crisp feel; the strong horizontal lines of the shelves are repeated in the mahogany ceiling beams. "My clients didn't want the rustic look of old beams and really love the crisp look of these mahogany beams," says Grasso.
Turquoise throws and earth-tone glassware add splashes of color to the otherwise neutral palette. Natural light floods the space through two lofty windows and wood panel doors.
Grasso says that the exterior of the house conceals the new traditional interior, so there's an element of surprise upon entry and exploration of each room. The clients wanted their house to "fit comfortably" into the traditional neighborhood.
The kitchen is anything but plain Jane. The space receives plenty of light, and the modular, stainless steel appliances echo the metallic sheen of the kitchen island pendant lighting.

This craft and study room is beloved by the clients' three girls. Grasso says, "My client was the one who drew the craft table in the middle," adding that the girls love that their craft supplies are all within arm's reach.

The linen ceiling, velvety tufted headboard, lush drapes and gold motif of the luxurious new traditional master bedroom create a relaxing space for the clients. Hidden LED lighting can be dimmed to a soft glow, adding a romantic and soothing touch.
