Workman designed the living room to have a cozy, library-type feel.
This secretary, flanked by John Boone side chairs covered in monstera leaf textiles, was a reproduction piece the client was willing to modify because it held too many memories of her late husband.
Workman had it refinished and replaced the old hardware with chrome pieces "so that it could have a second life. I like that I gave her something familiar yet utterly transformed," she says. "She can make new memories with the repurposed piece and let go of the tougher memories associated with the original furniture."
The Lee Jofa Laurence sofa has a ribbon edge trim in the same green hue. The imperial trellis armchairs and the leafy textiles of the side chairs add interest to the otherwise crisp and clean look of the white furnishings.

Carrara marble countertops, a ceramic backsplash and custom chromed Chinese brass hardware up the glam factor in the galley kitchen.
Workman designed the headboard, bedding and end-of-bed bench. The Sister Parish fainting chair and ottoman in Brunswchig & Fils Cathay Toile offer a place for reading the morning paper without leaving the comfort of the master bedroom.

A leafy bedroom corner vignette brings the outside indoors. "I love how clean and fresh the space feels when you are there," Workman says. "You can almost smell the various greens when you enter."
