The stem of the house is painted in a chocolate charcoal brown to serve as an anchor and pull the home's warm tones together. The seating area in the living room provides a uniquely open feel. It allows those seated to have an unobstructed view of the dining room and a glance into the family room/kitchen area.
Anna found the bright painting on a trip to New York. The warm hues from the painting pull together the hints of color from the room. The acid-green pillows also act as a pop of color against the monochromatic chairs.
Mann wanted the family room to act as a lounge, and she accomplished that by designing around the fireplace. Anna says this is their favorite spot in the house.

The elongated kitchen is embellished with shimmering glass tiles that lead all the way up. The tiles add a bit of contrast to the structured cabinets that line the wall. Tiles were sourced at Urban Archaeology's Glass Sticks with a custom color by Kara Mann.
Barstools were set along the counter for an informal dining experience and additional guest seating. Large woven pendant lights by Moooi hang above.
The master bedroom on the second floor has a much lighter color palette than the rest of the house. A plush rug under the king bed is almost as comfortable as the bed. It's a nice spot for their dog Jackie to sleep on — that is, when she's not on the couch.
The home office, which overlooks the living room, has an open-air approach to its design. A tri-level book shelf that separates the hallway from the office.
The basement media room is intended to be where the all-male activities take place. The designer wanted to keep with a lodge-like feel, bringing in darker tones and rustic leather chairs. The ping-pong table converts into a pool table, and the poker table next to the wet bar keeps the activities to one central room.
The basement also holds a home theater, wine cellar, gym/sauna and additional sleeping quarters.
