Davidson had a hand in everything from the plan, built-ins, layouts, "right down to the doorknobs," she says. The built-ins in the living room were designed around the television, which Davidson believes we should stop trying to hide and just embrace. The stone is a Beuchal stone veneer — real stone, but lighter and less expensive than full-size stones.
Art over the fireplace is by Jeff Condon, a local artist.
Ottoman was custom made by Vanguard.
Almost all of the lighting in the home is by Visual Comfort.
Sofas and chairs are by Miles Talbot.
"I love symmetry," says Davidson. "I designed the home to be very family-friendly and to have a very easy and functional flow."
The overall palette of the home is subtly coastal. "Subtle pops of color move through the house, and I tweaked the hues for different floors to give them a different feel."
Transoms over doors and windows are a another repeated element, and their aesthetic is mimicked in the built-ins, like these cabinets that separate the living room from the kitchen.
A subtle seaglass blue on the island makes it stand out, and the Viking stove is the exact same hue. The tiles on the backsplash by Jeffrey Court repeat the sea-glass feel. The counters are Caesarstone, which Davidson chose because "it has that sand feel."
Toward the end of the kitchen, you can see a transom over a swinging restaurant-style door that leads to the pantry. "All of the doors in the home are painted the same pale gray," says Davidson. "We saved some dollars by painting all of the interior doors rather than using solid wood doors, which are much more expensive."
The dining chairs are a sea-glass blue hue carried over from the kitchen island, but are covered in a metallic leather, which establishes this as a more formal area.

The window seat was designed with the clients' middle schooler in mind. It's a favorite perch, complete with storage underneath. To the right are doors that access the covered portion of the upper deck, and they are often left open when the family entertains, allowing easy flow from indoors to out.
"The ceiling has subtle paneling; a V-groove with a crown," says Davidson. The V-grooved paneling is another subtle theme that repeats throughout the house.
These seeded glass doors let the natural light from the laundry room into the hallway and are also an interesting architectural element. Around the corner is a landing strip. "I always try to incorporate a back hallway message center," explains Davidson. "It's a great place to come in, dump the mail and keys and keep that clutter out of the kitchen."
