Beginning at the bottom, the remodeling team replaced the old oor with top quality engineered ¾" white oak, creating a unied look throughout the various living spaces. In the dining room, Boutilier decided to do something di•erent, knowing that she wanted to create an accent, but preferring not to use carpet. "I had been in Paris at the Louvre, and I saw this wonderful diamond pattern on the oor," she explains. "I brought it back to our hardwood person, and we played around with the design and used that as our guide." The library, formerly a somewhat dated space finished entirely in brown-stained poplar, offered an opportunity for the design team to push the envelope a bit.

The designer wanted the fireplace to be a focal point, so the painters nished it in a cream shade from the same manufacturer, with the mantel a contrasting deep gray. Executed awlessly, this intriguing room, with its ergonomic chairs and ottomans in front of the replace and spectacular artwork, is a marvel of meditative tranquility.
